Additional Notes

This sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

This is a great pattern. Would highly recommend it.

This pattern is so well written and drafted. I highly recommend it, even if it's your first time making jeans.

This is a great pattern! Definitely worth the hype.

Pattern is great, even for the jean novice.

The instructions (especially for the fly front) were excellent. I love this pattern!

I had to take everything in a bit because the denim I used was super stretchy. The last time I made them they did not need any modifications and I used 2% spandex denim.

There were a couple points in the process that I needed to refer to the sew along. I really wish the designer had finished the sew along.

I am between a 27 and 28 in RTW and should have made a 28! Next time.

The length was great and I did not have to alter the butt and waist as much as I normally have to for my daughter.

Great pattern from Lauren Dahl!
