I made the Wyome Boyfriend Jean! I had such great results with the Jaime, that I was anxious to give these a try. I decided to make them in a 36. I felt like I was a little borderline with a 34, thinking that it was a safe bet to go up a size. Well, I don't think that was such a good idea. Why can't I just leave things alone?
from the shirt edge down, the fit looks pretty good.
I'm happy with the back, although I did take a big chunk of fabric out of the CB seam. I also brought the pockets up. I could tell from the pattern picture that I probably wouldn't like them that low. I am happy with the pocket placement.
Side looks pretty good too. A nice looser fit, which is why I wanted the pattern, but not baggy...yet.
Here is where this fit is a fail for me. Darn it! However, going up a size I don't think would account for this HUGE amount of excess fabric for me. If I make in a 34, how do I compensate for this and what adjustment would I make. Why is there so much fabric here?
I think a better fit would have been a 34 in the waist and hips and then taper out to a 36 in the legs.
For my buttons, I covered them in denim, which I really like.
Overall, minus my error of making them too big, I really like this pattern. It is well drafted and goes together pretty quickly.
