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.
