I did it. 2 pairs of jeans in a weekend. Why is that so amazing? Because I actually documented a lot of it. Since I am teaching a class, I needed to think about the things that I normally just dash through and come up with an explaination. I also needed to see where the pattern guide was lacking.
The challenge (besides documentation) was to come up with a way to make a deeper fly front zipper. When I made my black pants one of my pet peeves what that you can see the zipper tab. Shauna pointed out this awesome video clip on the Taunton Press website.
I hope to get some pictures up of the new jeans later this week.
