Where do I start? I looove this pattern for DD. I made these up exactly to the pattern and they fit her really well. I think I could skim in a teensy bit more on the hip and leg for a tighter skinny jean but that is to be expected as DD is size 128 measurements with a size 134 length (I made a 134). I've reviewed this over at Patternreview with a few more details.
I used a stretch denim with a metallic pink 'thread' woven through which gives the glitter. This played havoc with my needle, blunting it badly. The metallic thread was also probably the cause of the topstitching thread problems I had. (The thread kept tangling and splitting in this fabric but is fine in normal denim)
A picture after DD had worn them all day so a bit wrinkled but it shows the waistband height.
The front (oops, somehow I've made DD look short-legged, lol)
And the back, complete with the ribbon tag I sewed into the pocket seam.
The instructions seem quite good. However, I followed Debbie Cook's Zipper method rather than Ottobre's.
I think this is a well-drafted jeans pattern. The style is trendy and just what my DD's want. DD now needs more of these (well, in reality she does, but it's funny hearing her try and justify a want as a need ;) )
