Your jeans look fabulous and very professional. Reading your review, I'm tempted to put my Burda pattern aside and try the Jalie jeans pattern instead. Thanks for all the tips and details.

This is an outstanding review. I am going to save it and follow it like a pilgrim when I make my next pair of jeans. I am crazy about the results you got! Really, honestly, WOW. Both jeans look phenomenal on you, and I agree with your husband that you have no need for expensive store-bought jeans anymore! These are so high end. I love the subtlety of the brown topstitching on the denim pair; it's one of my favorite details of this project of yours. THANK YOU for taking the time to document everything you used; it is so helpful. I'm so impressed, I could go on and on (actually, I guess I HAVE gone on and on :-)). These jeans are incredible!

I am almost speechless and deep green with envy - what gorgeous - really, really gorgeous jeans - true religion jeans. Your topstitching is beyond belief - your DH is right - you don't need to spend $$$$ on expensive jeans when you can turn out even better looking and definitely better fitting ones Bravo Madam

Wow! what a great review! I have this pattern and I am on the scared side to make pants but the more reviews I read like this, the more inspired I am. I'm printing this off and following it like catbird.

Fantastic jeans! Thank you for the details on your notions - those little items can be very hard to find! I love your choice of the brown thread for the denim pair - they look very classy.

omigosh, they should replace you with the model for the pattern. Impeccable work!! Now I might have to make them and stop buying Citizens, 7's, Hudsons....

Awesome looking jeans and terrific review! I just got this pattern and some fabric for it. I will definitely be referring back to your review when I attempt my 1st pair of jeans. Thanks for all the helpful info!!

I'll join the chorus! Great fit and really superb precise sewing on these.

Wow! These pants are fabulous! The fit is perfect! Your glowing review has sold me on buying this pattern, after a not-so-great fit (and frustrating instructions) from a Vogue pattern I just finished. So disappointing when so many people really liked the pattern... I plan to take your advice in the future- you've got me all excited about my next pair of pants! Thank you!

Thanks for the helpful review (and your great pix). I think I'll try this pattern instead of going thru the hassle of tracing my favorite pair of RTW jeans.

I really enjoyed reading the review you wrote of your experience making this jeans pattern. You look great in the jeans and your technique is flawless. I hope you don't mind if I sort of use your review as a guide for my first time making jeans! Beautiful! Keep sewing!

I want your jeans! They are beautiful! I have this pattern, but I don't think mine will look as good as these. WOW!
