I especially love the red jeans with the boots. You are getting a perfect fit for jeans, nice and slim where they should be slim and just right at the waist. Congrats!

Love the red jeans. It is interesting about bringing the side seams forward to have a more slimming effect. Well done!

First, your jeans are great. I love the Valentine red version and you've achieved a great fit. Thank you for a really helpful review. It is so helpful to have all of the links to supplies, tutorials, sew-alongs. I think I'm finally ready to take the plunge and try this pattern for myself.

Just reading this great review. You got a very good fit. Did you shorten the pattern? If so, where, may I ask? I am also 5'2" Thanks.

JDpenelope I took an inch out of the upper thigh-about midway to the knee. I didn't remove any length from the bottom until I hemmed them, to make sure they were the right length for the shoes I envisioned wearing them with. On these I wanted them to come about a half inch above the floor when I am wearing 2" heels. To make that happen I ended up taking about 2 inches off the length before hemming. I hope that helps!

WOW! Really great and I LOOOVE your colorful fabric choices! The fit is gorgeous too - very flattering.

Thanks for answering my question. Re-reading your review, I see that you had answered it there! I really like what you have achieved with this pattern.

I would say that you nailed this one. I have always wanted to make a pair of jeans and your pattern choice is one that I would have picked. I love both pair, and it is obvious that you did your research. Not only is your fabric choice for both the red and dk. blue pair spot on, but the details on both were just fabulous. You definitely have my vote for the contest!
