Really great fitting pair of jeans

Lynn, those jeans are rockin' Seriously I dont think the ripples are that bad. For the waistband, I cut mine on the straight grain and interfaced it. So yes, there is no stretch but it fits great.

Fantastic jeans! I am so impressed with your back pocket designs and topstitching.

RadarRadiance said...
I love the back pockets!!! They look wonderful on you. I need to repeat this pattern and I am going to copy your "rockin" back pockets! They look very nice on you.

Great review, great jeans, thank you!

Awesome looking jeans! Thanks for the ideas about the back pocket designs. Jeans are on my to-do list, and I'd like to jazz up the back pockets but don't own an embroidery machine.

Terri A said...
This is a really great detailed review and your jeans look wonderful!

As Rhonda pointed out: great jeans and advanced beginner are NOT a match! These are great jeans! Marci

Wow Lynn. You make me jealous! I love the topstitching. What a great and detailed review!
1/13/11 2:01 PM
starryfish said...
Lovely jeans, you have 1st rate topstitching skills!. I must start mine in February, otherwise I'm going to be the only person on PR who hasn't made some.

Awesome! I love your jeans and your review!

Nice review and your jeans look really great! Also, thanks for the tip on the button holes - that is a great idea!

Very nice! Your back pocket designs are great!
1/13/11 3:51 PM
Christas said...
Your top stitching is impeccable! The designs you have created for the pockets look SO nice. You should be very proud of sewing yourself two outstanding pairs of jeans!
1/13/11 4:20 PM
Lynnelle said...
Thank you all for the comments!! The back pockets are my favourite part. =) I'll edit the review to discuss how I did the topstitching. I forgot to mention it before!

Another great pair of Jalie jeans. I hope the other pattern companies are learning a lesson. Love your jeans.

What fabulous jeans! They look so RTW. Even after 78 other reviews, your review is really informative and helpful. I love this pattern!

I'm about to make these jeans (finally!) and poring through all of the reviews - your review is ULTRA helpful, thank you!

Your jeans are amazing and inspiring! Thanks for the very helpful review.

The white on black looks fabulous, especially with such nice topstitching! Good call on the blank pockets too. What a nice fit :) My first pair is now done, but I'll be making more as well!

Look at you with your jeans stash. Definitely going to buy this pattern sounds a winner. Love the little cat detail. So cute. Just up my street.

Zoomitron said...
Your jeans are prettier than RTW. Great job, and I appreciated all the hints in your review. Not ready to tackle jeans maybe, but I've put it in my "thought que".

GoSewGirl said...
Very helpful review and WOW! you are prolific! I love all the different versions that you've done. I love this pattern too and you've inspired my to make some more!
2/14/12 12:55 PM
Christas said...
Oh, my goodness!!! What an inspiration you are! ALL of your MANY jeans look absolutely amazing. Just, WOW!!!
2/14/12 1:03 PM
MNBarb said...
I love it! We might need to start a 12 step program for those of us who can't stop making jeans. I really like all of the different colors and designs of topstitching. It's so comforting to be in the midst of fellow maniac sewists!
2/14/12 1:07 PM
Claverie said...
Gosh, I think we're out of room on this page. You must be proud, those are some great looking jeans and pockets!

What an amazing wardrobe you have - my favorite is the seafoam stitching. Your sewing is a true artform. Congratulations!
2/14/12 1:44 PM
Silknmore said...
BTW, I just saw that you rate yourself an advanced beginner - hope you're planning to update that!
2/14/12 1:45 PM
Levone said...
BRAVO!!!! All of your versions look just as great as designer jeans. I am definitely going to order this pattern.

You did a fabulous job on all your jeans.

You're awesome. It really shows that a good pattern and fit is worth recreating.

Wow...bravo to you! I have the pattern but still havn't been brave enough to attempt jeans yet.

A very fine effort. I am most impressed.
