I just finally ordered this pattern. I made my first pair of jeans last week using a Kwik Sew pattern and got such a "high" when I finished them and they looked RTW! But they are a little big after a day of wear. My daughter (14yo) asked me if I could make her some jeans so I think this pattern will be perfect for both of us. She likes a low rise and I prefer a regular rise, gotta love a pattern that includes sizes for EVERYONE! All of your versions look great. Thanks for the detailed review and lots of photos of all your attempts.

Super cute - and I love all your versions - how inspiring - I may have to make some corduroy after this!

Wow! You have made an even nicer pair of jeans from this pattern! I thought the others were wonderful, but this one is my favorite!

Now these are just perfect. Gotta love a jeans TNT pattern. How sweet of your hubby to do a photo session 4 days post op and in the snow. And very glad that the snow is in your yard and not mine LOL! Guess that is why I live in the south!

These look so professional. The pocket embroidery on the jeans is fabulous! I especially like the color of the corduroy. So versatile!

Wow! Your denim jeans look awesome! I hope you get your rivet thing fixed. I've never applied rivets,yet!

WOW! These look fantastic! You are getting great mileage out of this pattern and looks to me like these are TNT!

Fantastic! I adore the corduroy and I know just what you mean about the fit. Great job!

They look fantastic! I pulled up the first 2 pics and thought, are these the RTW ones? Awesome job and fit! Thanks for the tips too.

Your jeans turned out great. Congratulations. I am so glad the waistband thing worked out. I intend to make another pair for myself this summer, so thanks for the heads up on being prepared for a slightly different fit each time.

Great looking pair of jeans. So glad to read that they relaxed into a comfortable fit for you. I must make a pair of these.

Great looking jeans - I too have the gaposis problem in RTW. I'm continuously blown away by how well everyone's jeans look, who've used this pattern. Maybe after decades of never having jeans that truly fit; I've give it a try.

Those look SO good on you. Congratulations!

Well done! You are so right, when you first complete sewing and fitting jeans properly, the seem tight, but the jean material relaxes so much after wearing that they feel just right after wearing for just a day. They look fabulous on you.

Great job on your jeans. Glad the fit turned out perfect in the end. I am anxious to try this pattern too. Thanks for the review!

Sleek looking pairs of jeans!

Very nice, the fit looks great in the pictures. I made a pair and mine are too tight and the material I used doesn't stretch out enough to feel comfy after a full day. I retraced two sizes larger for my next pair. I think it is all a play on denim :) Yours look wonderful and I enjoyed your review.

Wow, what a fantastic pair of jeans.

They look fantastic on you! I have this pattern, but can't figure out what size to start with.

It is certainly true that every pair fit just a little differently! The pair I made from non stretch denim have to be dried in the drier or they are to loose. The stretch denim I hang and they stay the same! Go figure!!!! I think yours look great!

Nice jeans.
lynne1nor said... (6/27/10 9:00 PM) Reply
Pants look great! (Both of them) I've made three of these now and each one seems to fit a little differently, so I've learned to try them on before putting on the waistband. The 2nd pair shrunk themselves into oblivion after two washes - alas. Now I prewash the denim a *lot*!
