Western Wear

I really do make things other than trousers...  I DO!

I made myself a pair of Western style jeans from Simplicity 1818.

It is the same pattern I used for the Pucci print pedal pushers from a while back. 

I made no alterations this time and they came out SO much better.

Look at these cute winged pockets!  

The "underbutt" area still seems a bit saggy.

I think that's just how they are supposed to look, though.

 My modern eyes want them to be skin tight.  But they aren't modern jeans.

Still great though.

I don't even mind that they have a little crotch sag.

Yep.  I'm fairly sure that's how 50s dungarees are supposed to look.
