Hello all, I love jeans, so I decided to start making them.  First is a pair reverse engineered from 505's, the second is the Kwik Sew pattern for mens jeans.

These are now my work jeans and other than the waist band they fit pretty well.

Here is my latest pair, I didn't flat fell the seams, I should have.  Anyways, I slimmed the thigh and tapered the leg on these.  11 oz denim.

I need an industrial machine ASAP though.  Hope you enjoyed.

You are my Jeans Sewing Hero! I have this overwhelming fear of sewing jeans and or pants of any kind. Maybe one day I'll be brave and try. Cheesy They look awesome! Keep up the good work!

Very cool!
 Making pants always scare me.
Awesome job.

Those look fabulous! I have kind of edited pants before, but I can't get myself to make them on my own. Crotch zippers seem terrifying to put in. You did awesome.

Wow, those turned out really well. They look just like a really nice pair of jeans from the store. great job with the topstitching.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
Shiny and Cool!

These do look really nice. I'll be looking at those pictures again carefully soon, as I'm supposed to be making a few pairs of jeans next month.

I just wish there was somewhere that I could get the kind of soft, beaten-up feeling, thick, non-stretch denim they use in my husband's jeans. It feels amazing. Oh, and somewhere I could get "jeans thread" that wasn't so bright it looks like coins poking through the fabric. Sigh.
