Thank you for all your encouragement with the jeans!
I have spent about 7 hours on the jeans today.
I'm haven't even completed step 3 of the 10 steps of the J Stern Designs jeans pattern, but I feel like I'm half way done. Maybe I'm naive.
- front pockets
- CF seam
- back yoke
- CB seam
- topstitch CB seam
- back pockets
- inseam & side seams
- shank button
- this is fun!
- jeans topstitching thread is amazing.
- switching back and forth between topstitching thread and regular thread isn't as annoying as I thought it would be.
- sometimes my machine sounds like it's groaning.
