Blue Jean Capri Pants

I sewed my first, and so far only, pair of blue jeans in January 2016. Before cutting into the fabric, I pre-washed the fabric. Nevertheless, the fabric shrunk is subsequent washings after wearing my finished jeans.

So in July 2018 I cut them below the knee to make capris pants. I tapered the leg, although it doesn't seem noticeable.

Here you can see the fashion fabric I used for the pockets.
