I Used A Levi Jacket As My Template On Making The Jacket. For The Shorts I Used A Old Pair Of Zara Fitted Jeans That Was To My Liking. I Took Apart The Zara Jeans and Copied Each Piece of The Garment. Along w/ the Jacket. I Made The Patterns Myself So It Looks Identical To Each Item (Jacket/Denim). For Pants You Need A Waistband, 2 Flys One For Buttons & Button Holes, Front Left Leg, Front Right Leg, 2 Back Legs, and Back pocket. The Jacket You Would Need A Back, Front, Sleeve, Collar, and Back Facing.

How did you make those patterns? Can you explain it to me like I’m 5? I’m new to sewing and fabrics but it looks like you used dye and bleach? Maybe a sponge?

3

u/Kachiro4 Jun 14 '22

The Fabric Came Like That.I Used A Seam Ripper To Break Down The Pants So I Can Get Each Part of It Individually. Got Some Pattern Paper & Pinned Down The Individual Pieces Onto It. Traced Around Each Part & Give It A 1/2 Inch Seam Allowance.

Did The Same For The Jacket Part As Well.
