Wow...the fit on your jeans is great, especially the back. Thanks for the tip re spray starch & topstitching!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I made the high rise - low rise is a non-starter as I absolutely hate muffin-top! That's one of the reasons I have lots of trouble with RTW, in addition to major gaposis on the back.

Wonderful jeans! Welcome to the Jalie jeans club!! Did you make the high rise or the low rise?

Your jeans look fantastic! Perfect fit. You've given me the inspiration to tackle a pair for myself.

Your jeans look terrific! Agree about the class - I wouldn't have had the guts to tackle jeans without it!

Great job on your new TNT pattern for jeans! Isn't that a relief?

Great looking jeans! I was wearing my Jalie jeans yesterday when someone wanted to know where I bought them because they fit so well :) A winner pattern indeed.

Great looking pair of jeans - do the Happy Dance indeed - just back from shopping and trying on jeans - major, major frustration - fit on the hip then too big in the waist - fit in the waist then too big in the hip - am starting to wonder - do I have a very strange shape. Am aiming to try this pattern so I can do a Happy Dance too

They look wonderful! Love reading all the Jalie Jean reviews! I was very impressed with the fit but agree, the back does gap on most of us. Sandra Betzina also gives some good tips for it http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/4244/everyone-can-have-jeans- that-fit .......I am going to try her technique next time with the Jalie :)

Great review and nice looking jeans! I haven't had the nerve to try making jeans yet, but this one sounds like it's worth a try.
