What are you most proud of? finishing all that top-stitching!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay close attention to the marks you make for the top-stitching. Going over them once looks good, twice looks kind of weird. The top stitching along the crotch curve is critical, do a good job with that area otherwise it sticks out (in more ways than one!). Use a "stretch" needle for stretch denim it helps prevent skipped stitches when sewing. Plan the button by trying on the jeans, then marking... oops.

Looks great. Perfect fit.

I found the pattern to be really well explained. I'm definitely going to be making another pair or two.
