Some unconventional alterations I'm sure... but things are coming together, almost finished. Currently I'm sewing the side seams then belt loops, waistband and hemming. I will need to perfect my pattern for the next pair.

Hi. Great jeans - but haven't you turned the yoke wrong? Looks to me, that you have taken the left on the right back, and the right on the left back.

my pockets gapped like that too - less once the waistband was in place, but I will make the hips and pockets a tad wider next time thanks to Angela's advice.

I ended up sewing them shut because they just annoyed me so much! Not to mention I ran out of that awesome orange lining so the entire pockets was too small to actually use. But, Yes, next time I will do the same as you!
