Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was determined to overcome my fear of pants this year. I never thought I'd be making a pair of jeans, but wanted some print ones. I've never put in a fly front zipper so was pleased with how this one turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Jalie's instructions are very detailed and precise. Just take it slow, step by step, and you'll find that these go together very quickly and nicely. The fit is excellent. I chose my size based on my hip measurement and made no adjustments at all.

What you will need

  • A stretch cotton/lycra toile from Mood Fabrics.

Q&A with Cissie

prostitch asked:
WOW! ANOTHER terrific project! Like ALL your others are! Such a talent for sewing! The topstitching on your back pocket is just awesome and SO precise! ANY tips at all on how you achieved that? LOOKS GREAT!!!
Cissie answered:
Thanks for your kind words! I struggle with topstitching! Sometimes it is better than others. I used a jeans topstitching thread and a topstitching needle (#100) for this pair, I think. I have to play around with it for each project.
