Oh...I must mention, I used Debbie Cook's waistband tutorial. And on the next pair of jeans, I'll use her fly installation tutorial. If you're not familiar with Debbie's blog its Stitchesandseams.blogspot.com. Debbie has lots of very helpful tutorials not only on garment construction but also on serger and coverstitch techniques. Check it out if you get a chance. Debbie's blog is one of the very first I started following when I discovered Blogland. LOL.
And here I am in my new jeans. I'm going to wear them all day today and see if they pass the wear test. If they get too baggy, I'll know to take in the next pair a bit more. The sun was in my eyes, hence the squinting, and its windy and chilly. I was telling Alan to hurry the heck up. LOL.
