    Wow! Those jeans look incredible on you. I’m going to have to look up that pattern. I’ve yet to successfully sew myself a pair of pants.

      This pattern is such a hit. Need more push? Are you familiar with www.sewing.patternreview.com. If not go there and look up Jalie 2908. Also, look up Elaine May on here. Her post, review, and blog is hilarious. But it shows how versatile yet EASY this pattern is. Go for it!

      Thanks a lot. That was my goal. I am so tired of giving away my money when I can do it myself. I feel motivated!

      Thank you and thank you oh thank you! (blushing) The jeans were very easy. I encourage everyone to try Jalie jeans. I was FRIGHTFUL at first. But I dove into it and made my daughter a pair first. (Less material to screw up) ;) Hers came out great so I made me a pair…the rest is on my blog. But get the pattern. It’s very detailed in words and pictures. I believe the only way I will ever buy another pair of jeans is in emergancy situations and my sewing machine is not at my side!
