Your jeans look FANTASTIC! Thank you so much for the rivet info on your blog. I had purchased a lot of rivets and was unhappy with the length of the post. I didn't even think of trimming it down until seeing the info on your blog. Enjoy those wonderful jeans! :-)

I'm glad you made these a 2nd time with the improved waistband. What a difference it makes! I'm definitely making that change on my next pair.

Excellent review (I too, just HAVE to read every review on these jeans!) and the end result is fabulous! LOVE the London linings!

It doesn't matter how many times I see reviews for this pattern, I always have to read them! I love seeing everyone's end results and comments on how they made the pattern better. One of these days I may actually find the time to make mine!

Well, I think you've got the difficult part beat! Really nice fit and impeccable stitching (as usual)

Great looking - good tips in the review, thanks.

These jeans fit you nicely through the hips. The pockets are all very well done! The waist band is probably a combination of cheaper fabric and no interfacing- hopefully that can be fixed in the next pair you make.

I concur with your pocket placement! Hard to get them right without the center seam being done first! Nice jeans.

Great looking jeans but I see what you mean about the waistband. I'm a really big fan of contoured waistbands

Excellent jeans! My sentiments exactly about the waistband. I couldn't believe it when I first saw the line drawings, what were they thinking? I use the contoured waistband from a Burda envelope jean pattern on my jeans.

these are super flattering jeans! I totally need some of those

For a cheapy fabric these jeans came out looking great on you! Thanks for a helpful review, I'm (very) slowly building up courage to make these jeans, I'm gonna start with a pair for my daughter. Thanks also for the heads up about topstitching thread.

Your jeans look fantastic. Sorry about the waistband, but it sounds like you have the fix for that next time. Can't wait to see your next pair. Thanks for the helpful comments for when I bite the bullet.

I am always drawn to reviews on this pattern. It's interesting to see how the fit happens on different bodies. I did add a curved waistband to these jeans and it solved the problem. You look great in this cut of jeans and the flare looks good on you but is easy to change if you need to tame it down a bit. Break out that good denim.
