You did a fabulous job on this jeans, especially with the bar tack.

This review came at the right moment for me. I have the pattern and my fabric, and am about to start cutting, so reading your comments will be a great help. I, too, plan to reduce the flare at the bottom. I will refer to your helpful tips as I cut and sew. They look great on you.

Fantastic jeans! Love the changes you made and the personal touch of adding a fractal design to the back pocket. And another pair already in the planning - told you it was addictive ;-)

Awesome jeans! They look great on you. I agree, sewing jeans is actually not that hard, especially with a great pattern lik this one.

I need to just go and buy this pattern. I don't think I have ever read a bad review about the Jalie Jeans!

Very nice, perfect timing for the review. I'm working on my second pair today and forgot about the zipper lining up. They look great on you, hope mine turn out as nice.

Thank you all for such kind and encouraging comments! I have added something about the stitching technique to my review. Yes, I did rip out some topstitching and bar tacks and re-do them :)

Cool back detail!

Trying to read all reviews before voting. I'm sorry I missed yours when it came out, because it's fabulous. I don't know that I would say sewing the zipper on top of the center front seam is a mistake, but I do agree that Sandra Betzina's method of butting the zipper up against that seam is much better. (I followed S Betzina's method, too, for my Jalie 2908 jeans.) You definitely have a winner in these jeans.

Very nice. I particularly like your pocket detail. Thanks also for the encouragement to make jeans - I've also had this pattern and fabric for a while - I just need to jump in and make it.
