|Pattern Description: From Jalie: Women's flattering stretch jeans with slim fit through the hips and thigh and a flared leg, back and side front pockets, zip fly with button closure.|
View A has a low rise (2-3 inches below the navel) and View B has a regular rise (at the navel).
I made view A as low rise is regular rise for me on my short frame.
Pattern Sizing:girls' 2 to womens' 22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?yes minus my additions lace up side vent with eyelets.
I also used a contoured waistband from another pair of jeans. Straight waistbands do not work at all on my body. Jalie gives you the option of cutting the pattern's waistband on the bias, but that too does not afford me enough shaping.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Jalie's directions are really really great here. The diagrams are clear, the wording is clear. If you've never made jeans, you will have a beautiful pair if you follow the instructions in this pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This has been my go-to pattern like so many of us for stretch jeans. It fits well, looks good, and they are easy to sew.
Fabric Used:floral stretch denim I found at Denver Fabrics (now Colorado Fabrics) in the flat folds for $6 total.
Eyelets and setter are from here.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:From my side buttoned jeans, I had already added a side vent to the pattern. In place of the buttonholes and the buttons, I simply added eyelets and some lacing.
I hand embroidered the back pockets a little with a running stitch, echoing the meandering of the floral pattern.
I get my rivets here. They have a lot of good options for different shaped rivets with appropriate setters.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I love the overall draft of this pattern so so so much. I still have a few fitting kinks to work out with it, but it's better than 100% of the RTW jeans I've ever tried on or owned, and the flare of the boot cut is just right to make these 4 season jeans.
Conclusion: More on my blog.
