Here they are, my new jeans!

I made size U with no alterations.  I’m 5’4”, and I think I only cut 1/2” off at the legs.  I really like the fit through the legs and hips.  The waistband is problematic.  The pattern piece is a straight rectangle, which should  have been a red flag right for me right there.  As made, it gapes open at the back.  Next time, I’ll draft a curved waistband.  Also, I’m not sure that there’s much of a benefit from cutting it out on the bias, as the instructions have you doing.  As they are, these jeans do quite nicely with a belt.  And, they’re very comfortable.  The fabric is stretch denim, which the pattern calls for.  If I make these again, I’ll go down a size.  I think I could get away making up this size in non-stretch denim.

Some topstitching details for you, nothing fancy, just freehand drawings that I drew on the pocket with erasable pencil.  Garment #3 complete!  I think I’ll break from pants for now and tackle one of my tops.
