I love what you did and the fit is perfect. I especially like your pattern on the pocket.

Carla-- I based the size I chose by comparing to my VS Hipster jeans that I new fit me well.

Wow! great jeans. I love the color and the pocket design and the rivets especially. I've never done rivets and your jeans make me think I need to.

These are wonderful, and I enjoyed reading your blog posts about the making of these very much - great tips! Thanks also for the great info on sizing on these as the slim thigh would get me for sure, and I plan on making up this pattern from my stash. I love the red denim too - I also would like a pair. How fantastic all the way around, you have inspired me to tackle a pair.
