Very cool! This pattern is a good design opportunity to make a tuxedo stripe in a contrast color or fabric down the side...

Wow, great pattern (I must have missed this one, hmmmm) and they fit you like a dream. Love the bias trick you used in the "medium" strip. BTW the klickable links took forever to load but I'm glad they finally made it.

What a wonderful pair of jeans. I have a RTW pair of pants with that side strip and agree it is very lattering. In addtion to smoothing the hip curve it leads the eye to think that your "side seam" is about and 1" closer to your front, thereby shaving off about 2" of hip diameter, visually. I've been looking for a pattern with this feature, but sadly, I stopped subscribing to WOF a few years ago. I may have to go back and start subscribing again.

What a great pair of jeans. It looks to me that the bias strip would be the perfect place to put some embroidery or appliques. Good job.

Those look RTW, and I mean that in the best possible way. Very nice job!

Those came out looking very flattering. I like that idea of the "thinning" strip down the side. You were also wise to take advantage of a good fabric opportunity, too. Very good job.

I wish this pattern would make its way into the Burda catalog. I would love to try the bias strip down the side -- it looks like a great way to smooth out the bumps and to provide a little extra stretch as well. Your jeans look great -- wonderful fit.

Very inspiring! I too love that bias strip - I look like hell in jeans most of the time...maybe I'll try this pattern and see if it works for me.

Kay, I must congratulate you, the fit is very good, it really complements you. One can hardly ever get as nice looking pair of jeans from a shop, the review is also good.

Looks fabulous! Very cool trick with the bias strip - I missed that actually even though I have the same Burda issue. I look horrible in jeans (you know - some excess natural resourses) but this IS tempting.

I must have missed this review -- what great jeans. If anything will smooth the side seam area, I'm for it. Lovely job.

I had a class with Kenneth King and he said you could do that strip on the inside of your pants where it doesn't show to smooth out bumps...forgot all about his tip till this! I have to go look it up, did he say use petersham....

Wow, great fitting jeans! I once made a pair of slinky pants that were way too tight, so I added a 5" strip (!) to each side seam. I had forgotten about that, but it adds a nice touch and is indeed slimming. I never thought about doing it on purpose, but now I might keep that in mind!
