40s Denim (At Last! )



Finally here are the 40s jeans/ denim that I have hinted at for long enough. These were made from a Folkwear that I have been using for awhile. These jeans though are my best pair yet because I have finally got them fitted in all the right areas and they feel great I am really happy with them. Will I be making more? You bet.



The material I used here was a dark blue cotton denim I got last year ( I got a lot of it). They close up the side with a side zipper and close at the waist with a button. They are a high waisted, straight legged trouser and are very comfortable.
Paired with these jeans is an original 40s sweater and a silk scarf. I kept this look really simple and practical because I had some work to do. My Dad and I are working on remodeling my kitchen in my new living space and so far so good. The walls and cabinets are all refinished, and now I've got a new door so I'm really excited. Floors will be next year and I am so excited. My goal is to get the place how it would have looked in the 40s and 50s (fun fact, my new home was completed in 1955!). A vintage house for a vintage gal.

  1. Your jeans are great - I must find time to make a similar pair as they look so comfortable on you.

    1. Thank you! They are so comfortable and they are my favorite working pants. These are just ideal for what I do working on a farm.

  2. This a new look for the blog but probably an outfit you wear often for work. Looks comfy! Is this the Rosie pattern--did you make the overalls with sweetheart neckline(looks cute)?

    Oh, wow---this is your new place! (I noticed a different background.) I bet you are having so much fun fixing it up, painting, decorating,etc. making it your own.

    Best wishes, Dee

    1. These were made with an old Folkwear pattern that was from a friend. They are very comfy and are my normal work attire, I got these pictures just before my day really started.
      Yes! This is a little bit of my new kitchen. It's been a lot of work cleaning it up and will be a couple of years before its finished but a little bit at a time. . . I'm not sure if I will be blogging about the house restoration yet but who knows!
