I just finished my first pair of jeans and I am so proud of them.  They are actually the first pair of pants I have ever made.  The pattern was traced from a pair of jeans I had that fit but were too short.

I really love the embroidery on the back pockets!

Thanks!  I was very nervous about this project, but I was thinking about it and then found what seemed like a pretty good deal on the stretch denim, so I decided to go for it.  I figured that at worst I would be out $12 worth of fabric.

I used a tutorial for putting in the fly, but for everything else, I just sorta winged it.  I did a lot of seam ripping on these, too.

Those look so great and fit you so well.

I love your embroidery.
