Gotta love the design, the precision of pattern drafting in this pair of jeans. But the FIT is everything- and the apple or Pear pelvis options are just magic. I made the apple with straight legs and love them.
Best instruction booklet ever, I was able to make these with following steps in booklet and reading the Cashmerette tutorial on topstitching.
Great Jeans Pattern

I am teaching a jeans making class and selected your Ames Jeans pattern as a pattern choice for the participants. In preparation for the class, I've made 3 pairs and have been very pleased with all aspects of this pattern. The instructions are excellent and include notes for all those little things you need to know when making jeans. I especially appreciate the additional suggestions for sequencing construction to minimize thread changes between top stitching work. I use the chain stitch option on my cover stitch machine as my third machine. Works great for jeans construction!
