Nice jeans, I don't think my husband would even wear them. I like the ice cream part. Just throw them in a washing machine with hot water and high heat to dry? I think guys do like their pants a bit more roomy anyway. You will have to take a pic of him out on the town with you some time. That will be fun.

Don't think of it as time wasted when they are too big. Look at how much you learned and all that practice on top stitching will make your next pair even better.

Your jeans looks so good! Sorry to hear they didn't fit, though, I agree with ChristmasHills, don't look at it as time wasted, because they will keep getting better! Learning experiences, sometimes they *stink*, I agree :) You've encouraged me so much because I've been dreaming of sewing my own jeans for SO long! I asked my beloved husband for Angela Wolf's jeans sewing dvd for my upcoming Birthday. I noticed you said you're a beginner sewer (I never would've guessed!) and that encourages me all the more! :) Thanks for your very helpful review!!!

I love this pattern and have made it multiple times. I agree that the pattern does run large--I made my first pair based on measurements and a muslin and worked from that. I have altered the pattern a great deal over time to improve fit. You are set to make the next pair in the right size now.

Thanks for the encouragement. I am off to fabricville after work as they are having a 50% sale and I can maybe get Denim in coupon (2-3 meter precut). I plan on making them again this weekend. Let's see if I can find the time! I was so proud of my work and how they look like real jeans. I was so disappointed that he could not wear them.

Your second pair turned out great! Sorry to hear you had to undo all that stitching and re-do the seam with a smaller seam allowance. Atta make them work :)
