Description

I’ve read lots of good reviews for Jalie 2908, so I gave it a try. These pants came together really quickly, but I had to modify the zipper insertion instructions (if you follow the Jalie instructions, the zipper is too close to the opening & you can see the zipper & zipper pull).

I made the “low rise” version, but they’re not as low (thankfully) as I thought they would be, maybe because I usually wear petite sized pants? I shortened the pants but think I cut off too much, they’re too short with my boots; I should have left them as is. Otherwise, I love this pattern and am waiting for the denim to make the real pair of jeans. :)

Sorry I’m wearing a long shirt, so you can’t see the top of the pants.

Material Notes

96% cotton/ 4% lycra bottomweight twill from Fabric.com
