Remember these jeans?
These are my jeans using Jalie Stretch Jeans 2908. (If you want to read the post, please click here)
In that post I stated that I would write a tutorial on the fly front zipper. Since then I’ve sewn many more garments, but I hadn’t forgotten. Just lately I helped my friend Suzanne work through the fly front, step by step, and realized that the tutorial might have helped her.
I cut out a pair of fronts in the smallest size, and the fly shield, which I made longer by about 3/4 inch. On my jeans they seemed to have gotten smaller as I sewed, so from now on I’ll add a bit.
I used a cream coloured twill, an orange zipper and dark green thread. It’s not pretty, but it worked. I took pictures of each step and put a tutorial together as a 2 page PDF download.Please click here for the tutorial. Fly Tutorial Jalie 2908
Have you sewn a fly front? Did you have any problems with it?
And please, if you have any questions about the tutorial, please let me know.
