Lorna designs a jean for Prima Jeans

** I have updated this post with different modeled photos of the jeans.

I designed a pair of jeans for Prima Jeans! They asked me to design a pair just for myself and I had so much fun doing it! I picked the denim, the wash, the thread, the buttons, the rivets, the zips, the pocket lining, absolutely everything! I even adjusted the cut to fit my measurements more correctly.

I went for a girly jean as I am a girly girl who loves pink and purple, so I chose purple stitching for the main thread and shades of pink and purple for the signature pocket design. I picked long ankle zips as I love ankle zips and I added a cute denim bow above them to make them more girly. I also chose a button with a purple crystal in the middle and the rivets have a clear crystal in the middle. The wash of the denim is a beautiful dark denim which I love, it gives the jeans a more classic look. The pocket lining is pink and red with hearts and love written on it, I chose this design because it’s really pretty and it represents everyday life.

I designed these jeans about 5 months ago (September 2009) and adjusted little things here and there while they were in the process of being made. I had such an amazing time doing them and I absolutely love them! They fit perfectly and I can’t thank Prima Jeans enough for this!

I have been wondering what the lovely DenimBlog readers thought about these jeans? I know everyone on here has different denim tastes and the amount of girlyness in this pair of jeans is not going to appeal to everyone. I am 21 myself so I am hoping the younger readers might like them. I would love your opinions! I hope you like them as much as I do! I have always loved to design since I was little and to finally have it come true is wonderful. I included loads of photos of the details, close up angles and modeled photos as well for you to get a good idea how they look worn and laid out as well.

  1. They look awesome on you. I’m alot older and I have yet to get a pair of skinny jeans. I don’t think I would be comfortable. I’m more of a messy casual dresser(like Jen Garner).
    These jeans are adorable!

  2. Wow! I love everything about them! What’s the inseam (hoping it’s on the shorter side for us petite girls)? The only thing I would change is the bows at the top of the zippers, but that’s because I’m not a bow girl. Love the purple and pink stitching!!! LOVE! SO COOL!

  3. They do look raw but they aren’t the denim is just very very dark πŸ™‚ And lol yes they are, they are the barbie pink Declic Louboutins πŸ™‚

    Thank you everyone for the kind comments, that really means a lot to me :D:D

  4. Unfortunately they are not going into production, they are just a one off jean for me. I don’t know if many people would want to buy them enough for them to put them into production? The inseam though is around 29.5″-30″ I have shorter legs too πŸ™‚

  5. Overall they look really nice..tight & sexy. I would have skipped the bows & ankle zips but u still look really hot in them!

  6. Thank you Lauren! Unfortunately not, they are just a 1 off pair for me but I have other things in the works so stay tuned! I will talk to Prima and see if they would want to make something similar without my name and any other little adjustments for production or something πŸ™‚ I’m really really flattered that some of you would love to buy them! That means so much to me πŸ˜€

  7. I know I’m late to comment but I love them! My favorite part is the little bows at the zippers. I’m a sucker for a bow!

  8. I also late to comments for the above jeans, the washing should more serious. Added whisker at front upper & back knee.

  9. Lorna these are super hot. You really are a talented lady. I love the zip detail and the coloured stitching. I wish I had your skills! πŸ˜‰
