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.
