These jeans are smashing!!! Excellent job on the top stitching. Love your Featherweight too.

Those fit you great! They look so comfortable. Nice topstitching too.
1/1/09 6:23 PM
Wow!! You have making pants down to an art! Beautifully done!
1/1/09 6:39 PM
Thanks for pointing out the virtues of the side strip! These look great.

These are just AWESOME jeans. They look SO nice on you. OF COURSE, every detail is PERFECT. I know Christas also uses upholstery thread for her topstitching, which is a great idea. I LOVE the idea of the side "stripe," because I almost always have to straighten out the hip curve on pants, and this would certainly eliminate hat problem.

I just noticed this is your hundredth review. CONGRATULATIONS! :O)

Your pants are terrific. What a great way to start off the New Year! If one were to make these pants with non stretchy material, would the stripes have to be on the bias? I am guessing that the bias helps one walk and sit. Any thoughts?

beautiful fit, immaculate topstitching - inspirational!
1/1/09 8:53 PM
simply fab. The stitching is perfect!!
1/1/09 9:00 PM

1/1/09 9:01 PM
awesome sewing! Excellent fit & finish!
1/1/09 10:21 PM
WOW! Your topstitching is impeccable. Do you have a tip to have it look so professional? I am so impressed!
1/1/09 10:28 PM
Another perfect project -- perfect fit and perfect sewing.
1/1/09 11:49 PM
Amazing in every way. Enjoy.

These are really beautiful. They look like a very, very expensive pair of rtw jeans. Thanks for the detailed information on the side "stripe", like you I have two sizes difference in the same area, must try this (and check whether I have this issue).

Now these are fantastic!! I like this pair better because of the pockets. Beautiful topstitching!! And thanks for this hint on the side stripe - I keep it in mind for trying out.
1/2/09 4:43 AM
Fantastic! I'm always inspired by anyone who can make a great fitting pair of jeans for themselves! Wow!
1/2/09 5:40 AM
Fantastic job and perfect fit. Your pants look great on! Congratulations on a marvelous pair of pants.

Beautiful work always, Kay. Leave it to BWOF to come up with that "stripe" detail/fitting help..especially helpful when making close fitting jeans. And this is exactly why I save my BWOF issues..you never know when something wonderful from a few years ago is featured. Congratulations on reaching the milestone of 100 reviews..you are such a favorite of mine!
1/2/09 8:02 AM
I agree with Sigrid - these look expensive. Isn't is Project Runway where they say that? Anyway, totally awesome jeans, the strip is a terrific idea - plus your tip on how to accomplish it. Congrats on your 100th review!
1/2/09 8:22 AM
Your usual fabulous work and panache, Kay. Great jeans, great fit.
1/2/09 8:38 AM
These are amazing. I definitely need to search out this issue as I am on a jeans mission. I can definitely see why you've made a few pair of these - they look RTW, but they have that "made for you" comfort. Beautiful.
1/2/09 9:56 AM
Kay, your jeans are so wonderful! All versions are fantastic. I especially love the black capris from a while back. I think I bought that issue because of your review. I still need to make them! I also love upholstery thread for topstitching. It comes in more colors and seems the machine can handle it a little better than topstitching thread.
1/2/09 10:06 AM
Great jeans! And what a wonderful idea to set up the Featherweight (which I have as well) just for top stitching.
1/2/09 10:42 AM
Great looking pair of jeans!
1/2/09 10:44 AM
The fit is more then great... God know if it is long to fit pants... The look is awesome. Bonne Annee 2009 ! And what a cute Singer you have.

Nice jeans. I, too, have made back pockets larger than the pattern dictates. I think that larger pockets make one's rear look smaller. It's a proportional thing, I guess! :0)
1/2/09 11:46 AM
Great jeans! I really love that side stripe. I have a high rounded hip and often have trouble with the upper side seam looking lumpy too. I'll have to try this side seam. I do have the pattern though, so I may just dig it out and us it. Great review
1/2/09 12:12 PM
These look great on you. Some of the links aren't working though...
1/2/09 1:08 PM
Great job -- you have great fit and a beautiful job of all the finishing touches. I might have to try that side strip when I finally get the courage to sew pants for myself.
1/2/09 3:10 PM
These are fantastic! :)

What a great fit. Not too tight, not too loose, just right! Great job all around.
1/2/09 5:45 PM
Wowser... your work is an inspiration... truly.
1/3/09 11:45 AM
Ooooh, your execution is superb! These are so well fitted for you. Lovely job. Thanks for your exemplary review. I am indeed learning from you!

These jeans are so inspiring! They fit perfectly and the top stitching is awesome. Superb!
