I really like how those turned out. The color is gorgeous! Whoever would've thought that such a great-looking pair of jeans would've come from that capri pattern?

Great review. I know what you mean with ample belly and chicken legs ,without thighs...I have the same problem. The burgundy color is wonderful
11/16/07 1:41 AM
These look GREAT on you. Wish I had the skinny-leg problem. :o) Congratulations on losing 14 pounds too -- you look maaaaaaahvelous!
11/16/07 1:52 AM
Can I say how fabulous you look! What a flattering outfit! Your jeans are great. Don't be so hard on yourself. :) It's nice to see you reviewing again, as I've missed your reviews.
11/16/07 5:53 AM
I think your jeans look great. Love the outfits.
11/16/07 7:10 AM
Wow Sherril, you are looking great. Your jeans look wonderful and the color is really nice especially with that great tee. The fit is spot on. I also have that baggy back thigh (chicken legs) so I'll be interested in what suggestions C. Guffery has for you. Be sure and let us know.
11/16/07 7:46 AM
Looks great. I love the color.
11/16/07 8:21 AM
Thanks for reviewing the plus sized patterns. These look great and I always look for your reviews.
11/16/07 8:41 AM
Sherril, the fit challenge goes on, right? I like the fit you achieved in the back. Congrats on your weight loss. Let us know what Cynthia says about tweaking the back legs!
11/16/07 9:25 AM
Love the outfit. The jeans are fantastic! I like the style and color.
11/16/07 10:18 AM
Congratulations on the weight loss - you did a great job on your jeans. I will be anxious to hear what you find out about altering the legs. You look marvellous!
11/16/07 10:19 AM
Sherrill, another job well done. These look fabulous and I love the color on you, too.
11/16/07 10:55 AM
Your pants look great on you! Thank you for the great review. Can you share with us what Cynthia Guffey says about the back of the legs? I have the same diagonal lines on my muslin. Congratulations on your weight loss!!! Way to go!
11/16/07 11:05 AM
Terrific color on you. I love the shape you put on the front pockets. As always, a stellar job.

As usual, Sherril, this is a really good and useful review. And the pants look pretty darned good.
11/16/07 1:44 PM
Great job on these, Sherrill! (as always!) I noticed right away when I looked at the pic that you'd lost weight-yah for you!!!
11/16/07 2:59 PM
Great fit - your pants look wonderful on you - love the colour

Well, The snap broke on my jeans before I went the conference this morning so I couldn't wear them. At the class, CG was very busy teaching and then she brings up that next year she'll have a pants fitting class or give private fittings for $$$ before or after the conference. Then I didn't feel right to ask for help for free. So the problem may have to wait until next year. :( Unless, of course, someone here has a brilliant idea I could try.

These look really nice. There are no dreaded drag lines. They don't look bad at all! Do you think the fabric is too heavy is why they feel big? When you find that formula for the skinny legs let me know!
11/17/07 0:54 AM
Very flattering, IMHO ;-)
11/17/07 9:38 AM
These look darned good! I understand wanting to make them even better, though, when they're soooo close to being perfect. Sorry I don't have the solution.
11/17/07 10:16 AM
These are so pretty! Thanks for this review. As to the baggy back leg...in the pants class I had this happen in my muslin and a horizontal tuck across the back leg only, and at the area just below the hips seemed to take a LOT of that extra out of the back and helped with diagonal folds that formed from the hips to knees. I don't know if this helps you, but it might. You must compensate perhaps at the bottom for your hem. I think with me it was my shortness between hip and knee, but a number of the women had this same alteration and it is amazing how much it did. Not that I still have finished a really good fitting pair of pants, and you have! Congrats Sherril!!
11/17/07 2:41 PM
Sherril - these look great on you (and I can tell you've lost weight!!). Another suggestion- I have thin legs but a larger waist and I have been experimenting with a couple different things. I just made a pair a size smaller and altered the waist by adding to the side seams above the hip level and making the darts narrower. I'm pleased with the fit through the legs. I've got the review written and am waiting for DH to do pics before posting.

Congrats on TNT jeans, that is quite a score. You finally made it and they look great!
8/7/08 10:13 PM
I love your new brown jeans! Really nice. They look soft, too.
8/7/08 10:34 PM
Sherril, these are fabulous fitting jeans !!!!!!! Congratulations :)

Great looking jeans. I love the top-stitching and the contrasting fabric in the fly. They look great on you. Or you look great in them.
8/7/08 10:36 PM
Fantastic job Sherril. I share your concerns about thin thighs in relation to the upper regions. Those jeans look wonderful on you and I believe you'll eventually and finally hit the jackpot with the perfect fit.
8/8/08 2:50 AM
WOW...the brown ones have a great fit. The back looks terrific - this may be your perfect pants pattern - I still have excess in the back on mine, but there's always more to do, eh?
8/8/08 10:37 AM
I like the brown even better than the original! That color is so fantastic on you! And of course, another gorgeous sewing job. I wish I could top stitch half as nicely as you.
8/8/08 12:05 PM
I really liked the originals, but I like the sueded brown ones even better!
8/8/08 12:37 PM
Such a great fit and lovely top stitch detailing.
8/8/08 4:57 PM
I really envy you your lovely fitted jeans!
8/9/08 9:09 AM
Man, these look great from the front, but they REALLY look nice from the BACK (the highest compliment in pants, if you ask me). :o) You've got these babies NAILED!
8/10/08 3:46 AM
Oh, I forgot: I love that TOP too!

Fabulous jeans, they look fantastic on you.
8/10/08 6:06 AM
Great review. The fit here is really good, but I do understand your issue with the rear bagginess.
8/12/08 2:10 PM
Great fitting pants! Very nice.
1/8/09 4:25 PM
Yea!!! you not only got the pants done, but your camera working!! I think they look great and wonderful review as always!
1/8/09 11:31 PM
Great jeans Sherril - a beautiful fit and I love the topstitching detail.

Self-drafted jeans? How impressive is that??? Great job Sherrill!!!
