What are you most proud of? I did not have a favourite pair of jeans so I made these with a pattern. First I made a toile then altered that, then made the jeans with a lot of trying on and basting and adjusting. I am so pleased that they look like jeans with flat fell seams, rivets and a coin pocket and that they fit!!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure everything very carefully as it helps so much further down the path of construction

Wow! Nice job on the stitching- I have a ton of trouble sewing straight lines, so I know how much time and effort you must have put into these! Great Jeans!
