These are just gorgeous!

Such attention to detail, your stitching is just so perfect and flattering on the jeans, your girlfriend is very very lucky!
A really brilliant job!

Thanks for the link; it will come in handy when I finally tackle this project.

I use a singer slant-o-matic 401a and it works fine with denim.  I have already converted 2 pair of my jeans from zipper fly to button flys.  Just used a denim need and it worked like a charm.

My girl already saw this post and now wants them, luckily she said I can finish my other projects first before she start nagging me with "where are my custom jeans?Huh

:O! Wow, wow, wow. Those are phenominal. Ive been shying away from trying to make jeans since they seem very intimidating. I must say if I could make a pair half as nice as those I would be ecstatic! Great job Smiley

Whoa, those are amazing! I could use a tailor for a BF for sure! Not that my husband would dig that Smiley but at least I'd save money on killer designer denim. Fabulous work in every way!

Amazing!  Shocked  How long have you been sewing?! I'm soo impressed that this is your first pair of jeans.  I would be happy just to get that great of a fit let alone all of the killer details which make them look like ridiculously expensive designer jeans!  This definitely rocks!  Can't wait to see your next creation.  Cheesy
