bannaoil, i would use the link above for drafting jeans, the books pants are more of a 70s shape, i had to change them a lot, no I did not make a muslin, I just don't have enough time for that, I would never have any finished garments that way! Flying seamstress, they are not as comfortable as reference pair, the denim is still new and stiff, the others are worn in and fit perfectly, hopefully I will soften them up with washing and wear.

Very good topstitching there. The topstitched pocket detailing gives them the real, designer-label look.

Wow, rtw anyone! They look great. The hardest part to fit well, the rear, is outstanding.

Terrific (and terrifically fitting) jeans! They look totally professionally made. And many, many thanks for the link on how to draft jeans - I've been looking for something like that for years!

You have done a great job with these jeans! Are they as comfortable as your "reference" pair?
