Great Pattern

Perfect fit, Perfect instructions

My first me made jeans

The pattern and training class were great. Just what I needed to get the confidence to tackle jeans.

Ames Jean = wonderful fit.

I had never tried to sew my own Jean's before for fear they would be too difficult. I purchased the pattern from Cashmerette and am I ever glad I did. They are amazing and were so easy that's right I said easy to sew following the step by step instructions that came with the pattern. I will be ordering more patterns from Cashmerette knowing the instructions are clear to follow and the fit is amazing.

Ames Jeans and the fit

I have been looking for a long time for Jeans to make for myself. I am a larger women and patterns in my size are hard to come by. This Pattern was fantastic. The fit is wonderful. The cut is flattering. I am looking forward to making many more in various stretch bottom weight fabrics.
