1. I have always been afraid to sew jeans! You did an amazing job! The fit looks perfect and the execution is flawless!

  2. Those jeans look great! And your pocket stitching is fabulous. You mentioned a trip to U.S. with lots of national parks planned. My only piece of advice, go on any ranger tours and evening chats that you can. When we went to Mammoth Cave recently those things took the visit to a new high!

    • Bwah ha ha! I am so stoked with the fit on these. I feel like memade jeans have been a Cinderella glass slipper situation for a few years now 😀

  7. This is very helpful, thanks for detailing your thoughts. I’ve had denim purchased for months and I’ve just been debating back and forth what pattern to take a stab at. Your thoughts and photos have convinced me this is the one. Thanks!


  1. […] pattern since seeing Shannon’s pair a few months ago and after spending this winter living in my single pair of Claryville Jeans decided it was time to give myself a second pair of pants. What can I say? This lady is […]
