How to Style Tight jeans

Tight jeans should give you a nice butt (or a good ass. It determines you though).

Finished – Bum.

What to otherwise with pants that are so tight that you have to work to get them on? For it shall be with tight jeans. It is not such a pair of pants, you just jump in when you have to enjoy themselves. Tight jeans are designed to display the body – and especially the gluteal.

If your tight jeans don’t do something remarkably well for you, you have 2 options, according to

Your sole option is to drop all about tight jeans and work on getting a good fit in a few more “ordinary” pants.

Your other option is to organise “the ass out of his pants” on your jeans, so they come to fulfill their objective: to provide you with a nice butt. I think it has succeeded very well for myself here:

Tight jeans are a little special. They are first of all a little difficult to find good symønstre to, and secondly, the very fine-sentient in comparison to the fit. It must be right in the community. In the very clothes you can get away with an ok fit without anyone really noticing it, but it does not go in tight jeans. They show EVERYTHING, so there is no room for rather large error in the fit.

It has been a single time that I, along with a student has given up trying to get skinny jeans to sit nicely. So I am not going to promise you that anyone can get a nice butt in tight jeans. But I will promise you that if you make an effort to improve the fit, then it is quite probable that it will be successful for you. It makes it as for the vast majority, who spend a little extra time and energy to organise their jeans pattern and refine the fit.

The jeans, I’ve sewn for this post, is following a pattern from Sysiden, which is for jeans with 2-5% stretch. Elast ancestors in fabric helps to provide a good fit, but it is not enough to cope with all fit problems. And certainly not in my size 44/46. So I have corrected both forbuksen and bagbuksen, in order to get a good fit, there is in my jeans.

The first time I made after this pattern was for the number of Sysiden, jeans pattern is with in that time, I made no modification to. “soft belly”, as I call it, when one takes up a little extra in the front. And I corrected step arch, because my test model made stars in front of, as a sign that they were too tight. Here you can see the first finished version of it here jeans pattern:

For the new version, I have tweaked the pattern on the basis of the experience, I’ve done me, while I have gone with the first finished model.

I have, among other things. raised waist, so the new version is 1, 5 cm higher than the old one. I had the problem with the original pants, they slid down during the day, so I constantly had to pull them up. A higher waist counteracts this problem because my jeans are going to sit somewhere else on the stomach, which is more suitable for it, when there is a little round.

You can see how to change the taljehøjden in the magazine included with the pattern from Sysiden. Read more about it here <<

Adaptation in tight jeans – remove extra fabric under the bum

But it is another adaptation, I will show you. I have not even used it in my jeans, but I use it sometimes in other pants. And very often when I align pants and jeans on my students. So I know it’s a tilretni many can enjoy.

When your tight jeans to sit quite close under the bum, to highlight your beautiful buttocks (drawing 1), it is important that there is not too much substance – so too much length on the pattern – just below the buttocks. Is that it (and it comes completely depends on how your butt is shaped, and how much gravity has managed to tamper with it), so you need to have it removed. Otherwise you just have a baggy place fabric sitting under your bottom, and it is not very nicely (drawing 2).

Although the extra fabric sits under the bum, and we therefore have to believe it’s the legs that need to be corrected, then it is in fact not the case here. If you remove the fabric down in the leg, then you get a problem with getting indersømmene in the pants to fit, and so you have to adjust on the front piece. And it can cause a lot of problems – especially if the pants otherwise sit Nice on the front.

Instead you need to “push” the extra width up on itself the bum, and remove it by the hip bar in the Middle behind. Start with copying your jeansmønster, so you can return to the original pattern, if it turns out that this adaptation is not what is needed for you.

The extra length in the pants, you remove by making a fold across his pants. It looks like a large incision that runs from mid-back to the side seam, and it gives you a slightly different angle on the top of the pants, which is helping to get them to sit closer to the body.

One of the pitfalls of this method is that you get the map part of the step the seam in the back. And it’s not safe, it needed it. For the vast majority of solves the problem itself, if you continue in the Middle behind the seam from waist and down to indersømmen in a deeper curve than that originally was in the pattern. It provides extra space for your bottom, and you avoid that it gets squashed flat. Trådretningen dishes you up, so it continues as it is below the value adjustment. In other words, it is the top of your jeans that get a second trådretning. See the blue lines.

It is necessary, you can add a little extra length at the top of the bagsømmen, so you raise the waist in the Middle behind a little more. It’s not going to mean anything for the fit under the bum – it hangs for together with the new angle, which is on the top of the pants, and the new skridtbue. But it will give just the length you need, then the pants are not pulling down the back, when you sit down.

You can also add the extra length on wearing the piece, which will be sewn at the top of the back panel. Whether it be for one or the other place (or perhaps not at all) you have to experiment with.

See in the video, how to get a good butt in tight jeans:

You can see in the video, how to make value adjustment in your test model, and how to get it transferred to your pattern. You have to sew a test model first, to find out whether you need this adaptation. It is one of the adjustments, you can not change in substance.

If you must do this contouring for a few finished pants, then you need to sew a horizontal incision across the back panel, and it is the fewest jeans designs where it will fit You both into trouble. with pockets and with the strong seam mid back. So do yourself a favor, and sew a test model in a cheap remnant denim with approximately the same percentage as the final stretch jeans.

Or live with that you have a pair of jeans that don’t sit quite as well as they could, and make your changes to the next pair.

When you work with your jeans, remember that you must be able to move into them. They must not sit completely smooth without a single fold, because then you can not bend the legs when walking, cycling or sitting down. So the small creases, which are under the bum, shall be there. It that should not be there, are big bags of the drug.

I know that many people have it a little tight with test models – particularly to jeans, because it’s “real substance”, you SEW sample model in, and not a nasty residue from the Potter box. But a test model need not cost more than $100 in fabrics. And if you stood in a shop and had to buy jeans, and there were only 100 $ difference on the few that sit ok and those who sit pounding good, then you would pay the $100 extra. Do it when you sew, too.

There are many more opportunities to customize jeans – and pants in General. When I hold the sykurser around the country, there is always time in different techniques to get patterns and test models adapted to the different students. It is quite magical, when a totally useless test model transforms into a pair of super tasty jeans (or shirts, dresses, blouses, jackets …) in the course of a weekend.

Are you one of the many who are sick of even that struggle with fits and more or less random adjustments, then came in on a weekend course, and find out exactly which adjustments you need, to get a much better fit in your clothes.

It is especially the jeans, you would like to learn more about, check out this course in jeans sewing, which I teach in Odense d. 18-19 June 2016. Here we come both through adaptation and stitching of jeans – for it is a little special sewing techniques and sequences, to use when sewing jeans.

You get just one last tip – and so is it Roger-Over from here …

Do you have the opposite problem with your jeans – they are too tight in the back? Then you can try to use this method, but with the opposite sign, then you cut into the pattern and spreads the length into bagsømmen, instead of taking the length of. Again: test in a test model.
