What a crazy fabric! I love the way these look - there definitely won't be anyone else with your jeans :-)

What a GREAT review, only to be topped by the JEANS THEMSELVES. :o) I love what you've done with this unusual fabric. Every detail is JUST RIGHT, and your TOPSTITCHING is INSPIRING. :o)

These are really nice jeans, I love the color contrast, nice touch! Great idea on the use of the different threads! I might try that too! Thank you!

Fractal- the faced hem was topstitched from the outside, but I used a heavyweight black thread instead of the purple. Didn't want to break the leg line!

Raye Ann, you did such a lovely job. I'm glad you decided to go for the pops of the makes for a really unique special look.

Congratulations on you promotion. This jeans contest has churned out some fantastic jeans. I love your original details, especially the piping. Good for you with the fearless sewing!

What a great idea to make piped pockets. It makes these jeans a standout!

Love,love,love these jeans. This pattern is definitely on my wishlist.

I love your creative use of piping and matching topstitching. It makes for a very polished look. With your faced hem, did you handstitch it to the inside or topstitch on the outside?

Wonderful looking jeans. Love the contrast piping.

Wow - the piping on the back pockets is great. Your persistence with the muslins has really paid off. Congrats!

Thanks everyone! JDpenelope- I think the pockets are still a little too big, too, but really are not out of step with current fashion. I think the curve helps to offset the size, but that is one of the "refinements" I would make!

You should be proud! These jeans are wonderful success!

Raye Ann these jeans are to die for, gorgeous details LOVE the piped pockets! Great fabric! Yes I too found curved pockets look much better on our tushies :) And no they do not look too tight,the fit looks great. Believe me they will stretch out and you will be glad you made them like this. Bravo again this was a great experience wasn't it ! Enjoy your fab new jeans !!

Raye Anne -- Great jeans and an informative and interesting review. I agree with you about the topstitching; even my machine got tired of it (a repairman is in our future). Your fit is amazing. I love everything you did. (Well, the rear pockets looks big to me, but I'm from a different generation, so not to worry.) You have a great pair of jeans, there!
