DIY Quilted Denim and Leather Jeans

If you follow me on instagram, you know my fall inspiration is everything quilted.  I have been completely obsessed with experimenting with quilting everything from leather to neoprene, so when I picked up this 2-way stretch denim fabric from G Street I had no idea what I was going to do with it except I knew I wanted to quilt it.  I used this McCall’s pattern view C with pattern alterations noted below.

Tank-Theyskens Theory
Clutch-Bottega Veneta
Heels-Manolo Blahnik

Pattern alterations:

Using builders paper, trace piece 11, the middle front pattern piece into three sections.  The top angled section is 7″ from the tip.  The second section is 4″ from the bottom of the first section and the third section is 4″ from the second section.

Added 4″ to the the lower front

Added a leather waist band and side zipper

Quilted the angled piece of the middle piece.
Traced pattern piece 13 onto builders paper, cut the piece down the middle to create two pieces and sewed the pieces back together to create seams.
