omg! You MADE those?! I bow down to you. These are superbly sewn- the topstitching is absolutely stunning. Thanks for the flat seat adjustment tute; I am a flat seated mama, but do not need the thin thighs adjustment- I wish! Great jeans!!

I would wear these jeans in a heart beat. You did a wonderful job on them. I only wish I could topstitch as well as you!

Wow!!!! Your jeans are absolutely beautiful. Your topstitching is beautiful. Impeccable work. Thank you for taking the time to include the pictures and write a helpful review.

Another inspired reader/viewer. Your jeans are wonderful and your review so very thorough. Nice to know there's another "process person" out there. To top it off, McCalls patterns are on sale at JoAnn's this beginning Nov 22nd. Looks like I'll be there following your lead. Time to stop searching RTW for a pair of jeans.

love your jeans! I have this pattern and in fact bought 3 more copies as backup after sewing my first pairs of jeans from it. You are inspiring me to bring my tan denim w/the subtle herringbone/chevron design out of my stash to sew another pair.

Great job! I have been trying different techniques for a couple years w/o success and this pattern & corduroy fabric has been in the "to do" pile for 2 years. I printed the Anne Rowley Flat Seam Adjustment which I think is what I've been missing. Does she have a book? Do you know what Threads issue discussed the tip for close fitting pants? Thank you so much for sharing your fitting dilema.
