These are the first jeans I've ever sewn for Jake. The first pair of bigger size jeans I've ever sewn. I altered them a little by adding the the rear rise, but I didn't add enough to the front crotch depth. And the width across the hips needs to be widened a little. I forgot to raise the back pockets up a little when I raised the rise. The elastic is awful, not the right kind of stretch and I should have used 1.5 inch instead of 1 in. The length is perfect though. The next time I sew these, they should fit much better IF I can find good elastic!
I'm fairly happy with them because they are my first attempt and they did come out WEARABLE, which is what's important! And the back pockets ARE level!! They're just sitting funny.
