Thanks everyone! And...Liz and Nancy, another big **thank you** for all your help. I appreciate it so much :) And...I did let out the side seams 1/8-inch (but am too lazy to post pix). They're better. I'm less self-conscious.

Fabulous jeans. I would have been tickled if I had made the first pair, but this pair is awesome!

You did a fantastic job on these-the fit through the back legs was improved considerably on your second pair! But actually I like the first ones too. Very very nice!

Think I may have to get this pattern. I see what you mean about the quantity of stretch affecting the fit, but both pair of jeans look really good, for different types of looks. You did a fantastic job on the details, and I espectially like the pocket embroideries. Thanks for the source suggestions for rivets, etc. Great review!

I too have been watching this process on the thread, and I am so impressed! I've already put together my own muslin of this pattern and am ready to cut into my first "real" fabric.

These look great! I was a commenter on the thread and they are immensely better than the first pair. Everyone will think that you bought them!

Nice jeans! You have inspired me to get going on a pair. Just finished BWOF dress pants and looking at jeans now! Thanks for the review! (I might be back for questions on the rivets).

These look like you paid $200 for them!! The fit is marvelous, and your detail work is flawless. It's amazing how many sources you used for the makings of these jeans.
