Thanks for a great review. The jeans look really jean-like on you, and that's actually pretty rare with jeans patterns (sounds funny, but it's true: Very often they look like some kind of trouser hybrid).

They look great on your butt!!!

:) Those look great! Did you do all the topstitching?

Thank you for your kind comments. Cabinbaby, these are my muslin/prototype first attempt. I did all the topstitching because I wanted to practice--double rows of topstitching are something I had never done before. The only thing I didn't do was put stitching on the pockets as I couldn't think of a way to do this that would minimize my butt and looking at my RTW jeans I could see that most of them have no pocket stitching either.

I think that I'm seeing only pictures of your muslin--do you have a link to the jeans made from the denim? I admit, Im' envious--I'm still waiting for my patterns to arrive. :)

MasoumaRose I will take pictures of the jeans and edit the review in the next day or so.

Thanks for a great review! I've been on the fence about this pattern, but you've convinced me to give it a try. Your fit is fabulous, great job! Thanks also for the links, I have gaposis problems as well.

Fantastic review! Wonderful workmanship! These are jeans after my own heart too - I might have to give this pattern a try.

Dale C said...
Wow they look great! I'm so glad to see these reviews popping up now, just before I start cutting. Reading them made me realize I may need to include the extra 1" for fitting as my body is not nearly as slim and svelte as yours and cabinbaby's...

I've always wanted to sew jeans, and your review may push me over the edge to get this Jalie pattern! Nice job!

Ann S, I was afraid to sew jeans, but the idea of the jeans sew along encouraged me, and I'm really glad I tried this pattern.
