This block is so crisp and clean looking...I have been looking at it and wondering about the fabric. I like that you used denim. I think I might have a piece that I've cut off of a pair to make shorts..just have to figure out where it is.

Interesting jeans. Thanks for sharing your depiction of a pair of skinny jeans. Are the bell-bottoms to accommodate your footwear?
