Those jeans are amazing!!! You do excellent work. Your attention to detail is fantastic!!! Your pair of denim looks WAY better than those $150.00 plus pairs out there in the retail world. Custom fit to your body. I bow down to your sewing awesomeness!!!

I LOVE the embroidery on the pockets!! These look like very expensive store-bought jeans!

What an awesome pair of jeans! The metallic topstitching sounds like it gives your jeans a dressy Chanel touch.

Wow!! There is no way I am ever going to spend $$$ on jeans when such a superb pair can be CUSTOM MADE at home.

Great jeans.

Perfect! I love your idea of silver topstitching. Don't you love it when you find a pattern that you really LOVE? :o)

So cool.... your jeans look awesome and you look stunning in them. You have done such a great job. I have got this pattern ready to go so I am thrilled to read your review. Which view did you sew... I am assuming view B..? They look far better than RTW I have seen.

Perfect jeans. I have this pattern and hope it will fit as well as yours does.

Ooh nice! I have that pattern and have not made it yet. We are similar shaped below the waist, so I am encouraged to get mine out and sew them up.

I want that pattern, I want it now! And an embroidery machine to go with it... Erica, seriously now, these are absolutely gorgeous jeans and they look perfect on you. Amazing job!

Gah!! How do you do it? I could make jeans from now until kingdom come and they would still look like I got them from the flea market.

I bought the pattern a few weeks ago, and after your review, I'm going out to find the right denim. Awesome work!

Fabulous jeans! Jeans are my next project, so I appreciate your review. I also have this pattern in the stash. If mine fit this well I won't be buying anymore jeans!

I'm currently working this pattern and I'm curious to know if you used the pattern directions for the fly/zipper or a different method. After multiple tries I finally figured out the pattern directions, I'm just not loving how they came out. Would be interested to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
