Nice work on all the versions. I really like the cats and kiwi!

I enjoyed your review -- and dared to look at your belly button picture. It was interesting to see how high this pair of low rise jeans turned out on your 5'4" frame. I didn't want a 3 inch zipper, so opted for regular rise; on me (I'm 5'2"), they look like Mom Jeans -- coming all the way up to my naval. So your review helped me understand that I need to shorten the length partly at the top of the jeans, as well as above and below the knee. Your embroidery is great and the jeans are a winner.

Great job and btw there was no belly in your belly shot:-) You look great in these jeans!

Great job! I love your jeans. About the dipping at the front, if you look at RTW low rise jeans, they do the same thing - but they must! Imagine if they went around from front to back perfectly level. I think you would end up showing a lot more than you wish to! Anyway, they look great on you!

I want to try this pattern later this year - your review is so helpful, thanks! Also, I think your jeans look great. The best part about sewing for yourself is that if you want regular rise you can make them, no being disappointed at the store!

Your second version is looking tops and I'm wondering when the kangaroo or koala are going to have their appearance? Love the kiwi as well.

Fabulous jeans, great job! As a Kiwi, I am flattered you chose to wear our national emblem with pride :o)

You should be thrilled. Those jeans look fabulous. I am sorry I don't have answers for your front waist dipping problem but hopefully someone else does. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah! JEF! Your jeans look so awesome. I am so glad you finally progressed from your one-leg wonders! The fit looks wonderful and I love your pockets. I am inspired to start on my next pair.

I love your jeans. They look very nice. My sister would totally tell me the same thing about low rise - get with the times...... (BTW they looks about where I'd like my jeans to be1)

Great jeans and an awesome review! Welcome to the homemade jeans club! I'm looking forward to trying this pattern - just got it!
MNBarb said... (5/18/10 12:38 PM) Reply
I'm so glad people are still reviewing these jeans. My pattern is in the mail and I'm absorbing all of the info. I'm still questioning which rise to make. All of your tips were helpful. I think your jeans look great. What a great thing to have jeans made just for you.

Love your jeans! They look amazing. I just bought this pattern and can't wait to try them out.

Isn't it a treat to make jeans so nice the first try? They look great and your review is quite helpful.

And they look even more fabulous in person! Thanks for the tip about not doing any alterations before adding the waistband. Great job!

Spay adhesive & your DH positioning them "appropriately"...the mental picture of that's going to have me suddenly grinning for days, lol! Your jeans look fantastic, and I love love love your pocket placement (good job, JEF's DH!) The RTW pockets annoy the carp out of me; they're too far down the back of the leg and look silly and unflattering. Yours are perfectly placed! Great jeans!

Hope mine turn out as well as yours! I just cut them out this afternoon. I like your pocket stitching.
