Great job. I used to make all my DDs' jeans when they were young and they require a lot of fitting and top stitching. Yours look like they fit well.

OMGosh, those have got to be one of the finest pairs of jeans I've ever seen! They look like RTW and fit perfectly! I'm so insanely jealous, I totally want and need a pair. You've inspired me. I love your denim too. So often it's hard to find denim that doesn't scream homemade. Beautiful, beautiful work. :-)

I just can't get over how NICE these look, Christa. Of course, it doesn't hurt that you have the PERFECT figure! That's a great idea, to save one of your washings for AFTER they're made too. I'm going to try that next time!

The new jeans look absolutely wonderful on Lauren. Wow! To think that you could make the same size and alterations for her. So great! I would make a zillion pairs of these jeans if they fit like yours and Lauren's.

I would absolutely KILL to look as good as EITHER ONE OF YOU in a pair of jeans! These are SOOOOOOO awesome, Christa! (I'm trying not to use the word "awesome," but it just seems to FIT here, just like the jeans FIT, get it?) Lauren is SO pretty and her jeans are just PERFECT! I can't get over it. I can't WAIT to see your mom's too! Now are you going to make a pair for porr mistreated little Charlie? :o)) (I'm going to send a picture of Lauren to Mom. :o)

Okay, that does it, I'm tracing these off TONIGHT. I've been torn between this pattern and another jeans pattern, but I think this would fit better and I love Ottobre's instructions. Beautiful work on both pair (and very cute furry grandchild!)

Your jeans are terrific! While I won't look nearly as good in those jeans and you and your daughter, I'm still going to make them. I truly appreciate all the extra photos and info you included in this review.

awesome jeans! I'm just about making this pattern for some shorts.

I must have slept through the month of November last year -- how did I miss this?!! These jeans are outstanding and the construction is flawless, impeccable, professional! The fit is SO PERFECT and that denim was a lucky find. I love all the pictures, which have confirmed for me that your family is without a doubt the most beautiful group of people anywhere. Lauren looks like Giada De Laurentis. Beautiful work!

FIERCE! I was just telling my non-sewing friends how pointless it is to make jeans because they always look so meh. Yours are stunning! Gotta get that pattern!!
