This is how I wore my J.Stern jeans today....partnered with my Sandra Betzina Today's Fit Jacket ~ Vogue 8043. Yes we too got snow last night. It was a little bit chilly for an out door photo shoot :) ... but it was a very pretty sight.
Pattern No. 0037
Available in sizes 6 - 16. Fitted jeans featuring classic 5-pocket styling
w/ optional back flap pockets, easy front fly zipper, boot leg hem and topstitching. Finished inseam 34”.
I like the style. They look similar to my favorite RTW. They are not too low but also not too high. ( Jennifer Stern also has another jean pattern # 0037W, Available in sizes 12W - 24W)
12 oz Denim.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I'd say these pretty much fit out of the envelope. After making the original muslin I ended up only adding to the hips. I made my belt loops smaller.My front fly opens opposite the instructions because when working on the zipper steps, I cut off the wrong side ...operator problem :) I embroidered a design on the back pockets and I also embroidered " J.Stern" on the back waistband. (My rivets and my button don't match because I couldn't find matching ones. I ended up using rivets from my Prym Vario Plus Kit.and the button from Fabricville.) I will find matching sets for next ones! For the waistband, I used "Pro Tailor Deluxe" interfacing, from Pam @ Sew Exciting. It is an excellent interfacing and the quality is exceptional. The waistband feels perfectly stabilized :)
My husband assisted in applying the rivets. I used the tool (pliers) from the kit and a couple of other tools :) like a nail & hammer.
I will definitely sew this pattern again and I highly recommend this pattern.Conclusion:
I am thrilled with these jeans.They fit as well as, if not better than my Favorite RTW pair of jeans. The pattern went together extremely well. The instructions were easy to follow and if you do have problems Jennifer Stern has a blog and welcomes questions. She also adds in her pattern instructions if you have any questions or comments or require assistance to email her. That is pretty good!

I must say so far I think it is awesome. I love Sandra Betzina and Ron Collins. They are fun to watch and there is just so much information in their videos. I would love to one day attend their seminars.
I've also started collecting thier DVD's and have the "Jeans Couture" and "Shirts and Blouses" DVD's. They are great! What is really nice is that you can preview all the DVD's and get an idea of what's on them. They are "all"on my Wish List :)
