Pattern Description: Misses’ Classic Fit Jeans in two lengths with two waistband treatments
Fabric Used: Non-Stretch Cotton Denim, 12 oz.
Pattern Size: EE Cut a 20 but will need to cut smaller size next time
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes but I did modify the design to fit my taste
Were the instructions easy to follow? Didn’t use them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern was easy to sew. Being a Palmer/Pletsch I figured that there would be at least an explanation of the flat back pleats in the instructions but there weren’t any. I didn’t need this information but for an inexperienced sewer who doesn’t understand fit they would require an explanation as to what to do with this fit technique.
Jeans Sew Along thread, page 31 as well as on my blog M5142: The Finishing Touches.
Conclusion: All in all I am satisfied with how my jeans turned out. I will be making another pair to try and improve the fit. I liked the fact the jeans were sewn from denim without lycra in it.
