What are you most proud of? Just the fact that I made a pair of jeans that look pretty darn good. There is lots of room for improvement on my next pair, but I learned the skills that will allow me to go on to that next pair!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Match the fabric type as close to your model jeans as possible. For example, don't use a stretch fabric if the model jeans are not stretch. The fabric I used has quite a bit more stretch than my model jeans and it makes my jeans (especially at the waistband) a looser fit than the model jeans or my muslin.

what skill level do you think you'd classify yourself in? what skill level would you classify the project? thanks!

mmmmm, I used to sew a lot, but then hadn't sewn anything for over 20 years! I am probably an intermediate+, sewer, out of practice and not very up on new techniques. I would classify this as an intermediate project. I think you would want to have some experience with other pants, zippers, etc. Not a beginner project.

Your jeans came out great! Love the pocket lining material too, gorgeous color!

I was wondering if you have made any more jeans using the same muslin as you made in this class. Your projects are beautiful. I also went back to sewing after about 20 years of busy-ness and am loving these classes as a way of improving my techniques. Couldn't be happier with all the results!
