I am very happy with the pattren - the shape and fit are perfect for me. Instructions are very clear.
These jeans are not only the classic style I've been looking for, but they fit me with only minor pattern alterations. All details are authentic jeans features and are well explained in the instructions.
I have tried making and not loved several other pairs of jeans... But the 101 jeans are a dream!
I love the fit of these jeans! I was hesitant to purchase because lower rise jeans are not what I gravitate towards. I typically have gaping in the lower back area with other jeans. Not these! The curve of the back yoke and waistband contoured to my backside perfectly ~ even when I squat! I have a curvy hourglass figure and thanks to pandemic pounds am quite a bit heavier than I prefer to be. I sewed the size 8 and had to make no adjustments at all from my muslin. I will definitely be making these again!!
Very well drafted pattern, and easy to follow instructions. I liked the sew along to,
but could have used some more alteration tips. I'm really satisfied with the result, and planning on doing them again. I made in a boring denim from my stash and would love to make them from a vintage pair.
