Thanks for the review, great fit and top stitching. Nice to see different versions done and stating sizes to help us (who have this pattern on the to do list) a better idea for sizes. They look great.

Your sewing work is perfectly beautiful, as always. Thanks so much for the detailed, excellent photos, fitting techniques and tips. I will follow your guidelines when I get to sewing this one, I am a similar shape.

Love 'em! I said never, but all the fabulous results on the "home made" jeans is contagious - can't wait for my pattern to arrive!

I haven't made jeans in more than a few years, but yours make me want to give it a new try. Guess I need another Jalie pattern! Super top stitching.

Wow, they both came out superb. Well done, they look fabulous. Thanks for a very, very helpful review. Your topstitching is superb by the way.

Those fit great! Thank you so much for posting the review, and your size. I'm about the same size as you, and now that I see how FANTASTIC these jeans look on you, I'm inspired to make some for myself!

Great fit - both look terrific on you!

What a fantastic fit and great looking pockets. It's so helpful to hear your non-stretch and stretch experience. Since you made my size, just shorter, any chance I can get you to try a long version:-) Just joking. Your work is inspiring me to tackle the pair of Burda jeans that I'm almost happy with after my 2nd muslin.

Nicely done! I recently bought this pattern as well as the 1% stretch denim from Joanns. At $2.50/yd I couldn't resist, though I'll use as a muslin. One portion of your excellent review has me a small bit confused: "The waistband on the stretch pair is on the crossgrain, non interfaced and done like the Rocketboy tutorial which is really awesome, btw. The stretch waistband is on the bias, and interfaced, no quilters cotton facing on it, just a facing on the bottom edge." I'm confused because 2 stretch waistbands are noted but with different grain layouts. Is it me (could be!) or would you clarify this? Thanks so much for the detail regarding sizing and fabrics.

Annette Wright said...
Thanks McDonna, I'll fix that error. The non-stretch jeans are the ones with the waistband on the bias.
