This is my Jalie Jean 2908. There are so many fabulous reviews out there, and here is one more. If you are debating on making yourself a pair of jeans, you must try these out. The fit is perfect. Unlike many reviews I read, I DID cut my waistband on the bias. The only alteration I made was two small little darts on the back yoke to fix the tiny gap at my backside.
I can't say that I have ever had a better fit, even with RTW jeans. I'm so excited about this pattern. I cannot wait to make more. For the first time ever, I will have several pairs of jeans to choose from. See the pattern here.
I didn't shorten or lengthen these pants; I am 5'1" and I like my jeans a little long on me so I can wear them with boots. I made the lowrise pattern option, which I feel was a great choice for me. They seem a little higher than the typical lowrise jean I have purchased in stores, so I like this style of jean much better!
I purchased this stretch denim from Fabric.com. It is very lightweight, so I may go with a heavier weight fabric for the winter.
