Best Pair of Jeans I've Ever Worn

The Ames were the first "proper" jeans that I sewed (with all the bells and whistles). I was intimidated at first, but they came together beautifully and fit heaps better than any other pair of jeans I've ever worn.

Perfect fit

I was skeptical about the process of the "pelvic" pattern pieces. Especially when I do not consider my self pear-shape (I am more of and hourglass). The measurements and description Jenny provides; makes it is easy to decide what pelvis to pick. I made the pear shape and fit perfectly! Excellent instructions on how to insert the fly zip. If you have 2 sewing machines and an overlocker / serger you can rock the jeans by the end of the day.
