I had been planning on making a pair of jeans for so long. back in November I bought the praised ginger jeans pattern and slowly gathered all the supplies I needed. I ended up with loads of denim, 4 different zippers,brass and gunmetal jeans buttons,rivets, and two different colors of top stitching thread. like seriously I went all out. But it wasn't until this month that I had the courage and inspiration to tackle this project. I decided on the high-waisted version of course.
I bought this black and grey Houndstooth fabric on a whim from one of my favorite shops, wanderlust fabrics almost a year ago. I stashed it of course like sooo many other yards of fabric I've bought,waiting for inspiration to hit and tell me what to do with it.That time came in march shortly after I moved from Connecticut to New York city!. I was looking for a job and Fabric shopping had come to an end.I was soaking up tons of vintage and retro looks,watching black and white movies with the hubby and I thought the untouched Houndstooth and the Moneta dress I took so long to try would be the perfect pair.
