Fall is here and I don’t have enough casual wear in my wardrobe! So this season I’ll work on beefing up my casual wear.
A nice pair of jeans are a perfect start. I found the absolute perfect Mood fabric. Check out this cotton denim like twill. It is gorgeous. The description states that it has a softer hand than denim, which is true. But I’d like to add that it feels buttery like a suede clothe. It’s great against the skin and moves gracefully with every step. This is a must have fabric for fall casual wear.
The color is listed as black. It’s more like a charcoal gray. I
wore a black shirt to show the difference in color. I wish it came in
more colors. hint, hint. Dear Mood can you find more colors please?
I paired it with McCall’s 6610, which offers two styles. This is the second time I’ve used it. It won’t be the last. I like the options of the inside small pocket and the leg variations. The next time I make them I’ll swap out the straight waistband for a curved one for a better fit across my sway back.
With a few more little tweaks, this will be my TNT jean pattern. It has all the elements of a solid pair of jeans and is a good starting point for a custom fit/style. So give both, the fabric and the pattern a try. You won’t be disappointed.
