• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Still waiting for that magical shipping notification of my BF pants 😔
As am I, although I delayed a few weeks to email updated style details and measurement so I’m ok with a little longer wait. Hoping to get the notification before the end of Jan 🤞

I'm having a pair made at the moment. Basically I described the changes that I'd like to see in the jeans pattern compared to my trousers, and let them do the changes as they bes see fit. No idea if this works, let's see. I'll post something here once I receive them.
Doing the same thing myself. Asked if I should send in a pair of jeans but was advised no need. Hope it turns out well.

Any recommendations for a white shirt fabric for a casual summer wedding?
Not too see-through but the more cooler the better...

Has anyone here tried making some jeans with his normal trouser pattern? I'm happy with my pattern but they told me over email to send a pair of jeans or give measurements and I'm afraid of starting the whole fit process again
I'm bit surprised of this Luxire approach of trousers - > jeans. If denim behaves differently can't they work out how to translate measurements?
Anyhow, from my experience I can tell that waist and thigh are exactly same on my jeans and trousers.
Back raise is inch shorter on denim and still find it too high. Front raise same.
Somehow half hip is 0.5 smaller on denim, but I feel same could be reduced in trousers as well.
Knee/opening you can easily measure pair you like at home.
In general go with same measurements for denim as for trousers. Suggest your own changes, eg reduce front/back raise if you feel like it. Otherwise, denim can always be bit imperfect and easy to alter at local shop.

@luxire I've asked this before, but will do it again hoping your answer may have changed. Is there ANY chance you'll bring back or restock this wool like cotton? https://luxire.com/products/soft_brown_cotton_twill?variant=464966765#/

They were so versatile and good looking with a sharp crease although being cotton. They could easily be dressed up and/or down. Really loved them. So much that I wore them out.

Thanks! Will be on the lookout for them.
Please do. I might purchase 2 or 3 pairs in order to stock up, lol. Won't risk being without again. I've learned my lesson.

do you have a photo of a standard pattern for jeans back view?
I don't want my pockets to be lower than my ass as in the attached photo.
Or do I need to mention this when ordering?

anyone has any insights on what "HAND-MADE BARTACKS" is? Does it apply to dress pants? Thanks!

I ordered the white-cotton linen for a winter wedding in Thailand and was comfortable in it, but it's see-through. I wear undershirts, so wasn't too much of an issue.
