Choosing a Jeans Pattern
I am so excited to be part of the jeans sew along! Thank you, L, for organizing this sew along. Participating in a jeans sew along on PR a few years ago pushed my sewing and my sewing confidence to a new level. It is inspiring to work together and support each other. I have made my TNT jeans pattern, Jalie 2908 well over a dozen times. I also recently tried StyleArc's Jilly Jeans pattern, which I liked. In addition, I have the J Stern jeans pattern which I would like to try. Finally, I have a HotPatterns jeans pattern which I am a little afraid to try as I am near the bottom of their size range and often have to do a lot of work on fitting their patterns to my shape. BurdaStyle often publishes jeans patterns although I've never tried any of theirs. Decisions, decisions....
Since I love making jeans, I have rivets, jeans buttons, metal zippers and various stretch denims in stash.
