I had similar issues as you with the waistband. Since I did not notice this in other reviews, I tried some different things the second time around. I used the Sandra Betzina instructions for inserting the zipper and was much happier with the results. but, I also had to move the zipper shield over so that it did not extend beyond the zipper teeth by more than 3/8". The waistband fit much better after doing that.

Thanks for the review. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one to sew pockets inside-out!

Your jeans look AWESOME! I had the same issues you did with the waistband. I barely had enough on one end. And my jeans stretch out significantly before I even get out the door. I chose a size just a bit bigger than my hips since I was in between and afraid of their being too tight, so that could be part of the reason. They are ultra comfortable though. I sew my pockets so the print is on the inside where my hand would go in.
