Does shopping for denim bring you out in a cold sweat? Don’t worry you are not the only one!
For years my go to Jean (to prevent this harrowing shopping trauma...(dramatic I know)) would be a vintage pair of Levi’s 501 in a size 33” waist (I am a 25” waist for a bit of perspective) this would mean they would fit right across my butt and legs. Then I would belt them super tight and ruffle the waistband. The beauty of this was that I felt comfortable everywhere but my waist, the chunky ruffle waistband would be uncomfortable but it was worth it to get the perfect fit. The other positive for me was that I was using denim in sizes that are more readily available and less likely to be sold on.
Going to rag yards and vintage wholesalers I would come across piles of vintage jeans no one wanted because they were larger sizes 36,38 and 40” waistbands thinking.... what can I do with these.
So I embarked on a little project to make myself the perfect vintage jeans and to never have to go denim shopping again!!!

These jeans are specifically designed for women with a curvier butt/thigh situation and a smaller waist.
