nice jeans. Would these work for those of us small waists and bigger hips?

Very nice, I bought that pattern. Thanks for the review, you did a great job... and you confirmed my suspicions.... funny looking pockets...did you put the belt carriers where the pattern suggests? I thought the front ones looked really close to the center front.

These look great, Erica. How does this pattern compare to the McCall's jean pattern you've used?

You beat me to it in making these jeans, which is to my benefit ;) I picked up this pattern at the last pattern sale at JoAnn's, along with the jacket that's paired with it. They look great on you and I'm glad you mentioned the high waist, as I'm not wild about that fit. I don't have a lot of length between my 'used-to-be' waistline and the underwire of my bra so I will probably adjust mine to drop the waist. Thanks for another great review.

Great jeans, Erica and thanks for the very helpful review.

@ the lazy milliner, I don't see why not. You can make any necessary adjustments you need. @ Linda G, I don't really think I paid too much attention to the instructions at that point. I think I just placed them where I wanted them. @ coolobreeze, I like the style of the McCall's pattern, but I like the way these fit in the thigh better.

Great jeans! I've made her earlier jeans pattern and really liked them, un-topstitched as well.

These are a great fit on you and the review is really helpful. You are producing some lovely classic garments lately.

Great looking jeans! Thanks for the review.

These jeans are stunning, and you are stunningly beautiful in them! The pocket detail and placement are perfect, and your choice to forego topstitching all combine to create a lean, sexy, and very enticing silhouette. Thank you for your always-magnificent reviews; I so look forward to them. -Lily

you should really go on to Project Runway-it's not just the impeccable sewing but you really know how to fit, change proportions etc so every body part looks great. You make the body photogenic! does that make any sense? :)

These look absolutely great, I love them!

There is a Burda Jean that has that double pocket that I've been dying to try, but these jeans are bootcut instead of straight, so I'll do these instead. They look fabulous on you!

Thanks Erica!I have purchased this pattern and will hopefully soon begin making the capri version. I am glad to know about the waist height and maybe I can adjust it a little to be just below the waist?Sandra's patterns are great though aren't they?Your jeans look so nice on you!I always enjoy your reviews as you are an amazing seamstress!Good work!

Really fabulous jeans. I love your pocket detail. I usually don't even look at SB patterns, but this looks like a great pattern.

Great jeans. I'll be curious to see how you think they've held up after normal wear-and-tear and washing. That would be my big fear with making a pair of jeans--that they'd fall apart sooner than later or would lose their shape.

Wow!! Stunning!!

@ LindsayT, This is my FOURTH pair of jeans I've made in the last year and a half and they hold up fine! I'm still wearing each pair.

Erica, you and your jeans look fabulous! I love your decorative details. Thanks for the thorough and entertaining review.

thanks for sharing... this pattern is in my "q" as I'm determined to start making pants to go with all my tops. Thanks for the tip on the pockets.

Great jeans and great review .... as many others I have this pattern and only need to make it. Very inspiring and you confirmed some of my pattern (personal) dislikes (i.e. high pockets). But your jeans look fabulous on you .... I love your decorative detailing.

Erica, what a great fit! You look so happy wearing them. A good pair of jeans will do that to you.

Your jeans are beautiful. I can't wait to see what you do next.

As usual you look fabulous and the jeans are great. Thank you for the informative review.

Great jeans (and topstitching, too)!!! I love the idea of extra contouring at the waist...seems like it would work with curves nicely. Thanks for all of the helpful info, as always!

Wow, your jeans are fabulous! Such a beautiful job on the pockets. You achieved such a wonderful fit.

Erica, your jeans look so good on you! You are such a talented seamstress.

You look SO nice in these, Erica, with your long lean legs and the great fit you've achieved. I have this pattern ordered, and, with your observations about the pockets, I'm wondering if you were reading my mind as I was peering at the line drawings. :o)

Great review! Sigh......I'll have to get this pattern!
