I'm really pleased with the fit, though I could have taken in the waist about one more inch. Still, these feel so much better than those big old jeans I was wearing. It's so strange, the previous jeans were tight when I first made them. Oh well.
Now that I believe I have the fit worked out, I'm gonna flat fell the outside legs on the next pair I make. It will help reinforce stressed seams. I top stitched the darts in these jeans for the same reason.
They are about 1/2" too long for my tastes, but that length might go away in another washing or two. It's happened before.
Soooooo excited to have fitting jeans again, yay!
Everyone should make jeans!
Okay, have a great Thursday!
