These jeans are beautiful. I have made several pairs. I still get confused with the fly, but I find it helps if I wear a pair while I am sewing another pair and just look down for hints. I love the pockets. I do reduce the flare a bit to a straight leg and that is an easy adjustment. The fit is amazing and once I found this pattern and the Eleonore pattern I was able to achieve my goal of sewing all my own clothes.
