What are you most proud of? I had taken copious notes (after having watched the course three or four times) and attempted to pull a pattern off of a pair of jeans without following step by step to the video. I think I did pretty well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have a favorite pair of jeans you want to copy, do it while they are fresh and new and still have their original fit. I have been wearing the originals for these jeans for four years, and they had gotten a little stretched out and had holes in both knees. I tried to account for this when I traced the pattern to the organza and paper, but the final jeans (even after altering the muslin) turned out looking baggy and stretched out when worn.
