These photos are a bit grainy because they were taken at sunset, at Palm Cove. White jeans did seem to be perfect for a winter weekend visit to Cairns.
At the time of sewing, I thought that these jeans were going to be perfect, so I even took the time to put in rivets. I planned a looser style than my previous pairs, though I ended up taking them in again at the thighs and just leaving the lower legs wider. Making them looser just seemed to exacerbate the wrinkle issues. They look okay in these photos, because I have hitched them up at the back, but you will see in a later photo what happens when I am not posing for a photo.
I thought a Mandy Boat Tee in a coral pink linen knit would be the perfect accompaniment to the white jeans and a Cairns weekend.
I used to love boxy tees, but lately, I am not feeling the love. This was great for the weekend, but I confess that oversized tops make me feel a little oversized these days. I have another oversized tee that I made last year and never blogged...I am thinking of cutting it back down to a regular t-shirt.
In this last photo, you can see what happens when I have been wearing the jeans for a while. The back slips down and there is a lot of sagginess going on. The good news is that I think I have corrected this in Jeans No. 6!
