I already had plenty of denim in different weights and washes, so I chose a dark-wash, lightweight remnant. For the pattern, I went back to McCall's 3830, which I recently made in a corduroy version. I made one change to the pattern and added a waistband rather than doing a facing. I even finished it off with a button and buttonhole, which is almost unheard of around here!
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The only thing I'll do differently next time is cut it a tiny bit longer so I can get the length I want without making a stingy hem.
