This is the Midweight Denim from Gorgeous Fabrics. You can see in the picture it has sort of a tealish cast. I was surprised when I received it in the mail because the online photo just looks like regular ol' indigo denim. I really like it.

In the Mood for Jeans
Well, I'm in the mood to make jeans. I started that Sew Along over at Pattern Review and there are lots of people motivated to sew jeans. I still haven't gotten my Jalie patterns. I hope I get them this week. While I wait, I had the itch to sew jeans anyway. This is the back pocket for a trouser-type jean I am currently working on. I used my embroidery machine to stitch the design. It's really tone on tone. The only reason you can actually see the design detail is because of the flash. The embroidered part just adds texture basically. I used a copper colored thread for topstitching. I'll show you all the details once I get them done. All I have to do is the waistband, final fitting tweaks, and hemming. Hopefully I'll have two reviews for tomorrow.
