From cutting out to sewing on the hook and eye closure, it honestly took me only about 3.5 hours to make these. Not sure why they whip up so quickly other than this is probably the best fitting, most well written pattern I have used for jeans. Nothing needed ripped out, redone, or resewed. I even added a few topstitching embellishments within that time frame I mentioned earlier.
Cutting out I started with a 16 but with my fabric I graded to a 14 in most places, particularly the legs. If I didn't mention it earlier, I made view A or the straight leg version.
In case you are wondering this is a printed twill/denim from Emma One Sock. It washes and dries beautifully. I didn't attempt to match the pattern repeat. I just didn't have enough yardage for that nor did I think it would add to the design.
BTW, I am very happy with how my fly topstitching looks. :) I did however topstitch along the inner and outter leg seams along with the center back seam or butt of the pants.
I like the little details as well with the watch pocket and the optional topstitching design you can incorporate onto the back pockets. I added the watch pocket but didn't add the embellishment on the pockets. Next time, I just might!
All in all, I love my pants. I wore them all day today and found them extremely comfortable, colorful, and fun to wear.
Thanks so much for reading!
