Great job, Meggie, your zipper is perfect. Such a cute outfit. These pants would be wonderful in a lightweight denim, too.

I can feel your excitement! So glad you were so successful with the pants and the fly zipper. Great job. Your wardrobe entry is truly shaping up! The pants do fit you very well!

Man, now I really feel ashamed that I haven't put in a fly front zipper (tried and failed twice). Very cute pants!

You know, I thought the first pair was SOOOOOOOOO nice, but these JEANS are just THE BEST!!!!!!! Those little brads you added just MAKE them, and all of your TOPSTITCHING (can we all say "SWOOPS") is PERFECT! I wish I could run right in there and start on MY next pair of pants! GREAT job!

Both of those pants look great on you (but of course everything does!!). I LOVE the details on the denim pair! Very nice!

Wow, great job on the new jeans. I like the topstitching and the rivets. Where did you buy those?
1/19/09 9:25 PM
Meggie LuLu said...
LoriV, my mom bought the rivets at JoAnn's. Thanks everyone for the very nice comments!!

These pants are a triumph, I think! The Big Four pattern companies could take a lesson from your review.

Oh, my goodness!! Your second pair is beyond fabulous! The topstitching, the rivets - you are so GOOD!!

Great job on the pockets. These look so much better on you than in the magazine that I'm inspired to make them for myself.
