The season of barbecues and fireworks has finally hit, and that means it’s time to restore your summer wardrobe to its old glory. Made with Mood’s star-printed denim, this redux of our Jamesia Pants free sewing pattern is perfect for your next holiday party. Pair it with a classic cotton shirting for a look that gives off some serious Resort vibes, or try a chiffon crop top to stay equal parts elegant and cool.
For full pattern instructions, please visit the original post here. All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 22.
For this version of the Jamesia Pants, I took the side seams in just slightly at the knees and frayed the bottom hem for a bit of a vintage look.
To do this, stop your seams about 1″ from the bottom of your pants. Pull at the horizontal threads at the bottom of your jeans using a seam ripper like you see below. Carefully pull the threads off of your garment, one or two at a time, until you reach the stitching at the seams of your jeans. If needed, you could also stay-stitch just above the frays to make sure the fraying doesn’t continue up your pant leg.
And that’s it! Super simple DIY to stay on trend. Will you be giving this a try with your next Jamesia make?
