I think part of the trouble with Jalie is the lack of an Engish writer. The instructions are written in French and translated. They could really benefit from another editor, I think. The terms are not the same as used on English patterns. For instance, that pocket problem could have been easily solved if they had used the words lining and facing piece - being used to jeans patterns, I know right away what they intend - a piece of self-fabric on the pocket bag in the area where it will show on the outside of the jeans. But to someone not familiar with jeans patterns, this would be a real mystery unless explained really well with both diagrams and words. I am glad that you had such success with this pattern. I seem to take it personally when Jalie patterns are well received, I think I am proud of their being Canadian. Congratulations on your determination and stick-to-itness - jeans are one of the hardest garments to make. Julie

Would love to see a pic of your finished pants. I have yet to make any that don't have elastic in the waist. The pattern pic looks like RTW.
