I am having a love affair with Deer and Doe these days. These are my third safran jeans (versions 1 and 2), and easily my best yet. The fabric was bought in Amsterdam it’s an almost black stretch denim I think it was €10 a meter and I bought 1.5. It’s actually a little thin for… Continue reading More Safran Jeans
I love looking through other people’s stashes so I thought I’d do a quick post on my supplies.

The fabric had less stretch than the previous pair (this is good, the original pair were too big because… Continue reading Safran Jeans Take Two!
