Crafty sew and sew in Dorset

Welcome to my world of craft!


on February 28, 2017

I made myself a pair of jeans,  actually a hack of the ultimate trousers from sew over it in black denim so no front fly, but jeans none the less!
I added a zip guard, bias binding around the facing edge and altered the fit several times to get the fit I wanted….I was so happy!!  Until I tried them on one last time to decide on the length to hem them….. And the zip broke 😭


It had been a bit ‘sticky’ at times during fitting but this time it just jammed and then completely separated. I could cry, as I now have to unpick all my neat finishing and try and fit a new one.
Luckily we have dogs. How does that help you ask?!


Just look at that face….a quick cuddle with this beauty and the world is a better place again! Time for bed, ready to tackle that zip another day!

    Oh no that’s awful, it’s horrible to be so close then disaster! Least the end is in sight and they sounds like they are going to be fab when they are done. What a gorgeous face, I can see how cuddles would everything feel much better. (I’ve never attempted trousers, they scare me!)

  6. I would have cried too!! Hope you managed to sort it x
