my first jeans ever, they didn’t fit me at all, so I gave them to my appreciative boyfriend.
I’ll definitely try this pattern again, but next time, make it 2 sizes smaller, waaay tighter in the legs,(i had to take more than an inch off the sides!) and 2" shorter in the rise. Even though I used the size based on my hips, as suggested, and even a size lower, they were still too big, and baggy in the crotch… but they look great on my boyfriend! haha.
