Patterns Discussion / Re: Am I mad to want to attempt jeans?

Pace yourself. Decide what parts of standard jeans are essential for you and what you will ditch. Jeans get a reputation because people go for the whole look, coin pocket, studs, run and fell seams, top stitching, waistband with belt loops, fly front. If you just want to make something that fits nicely and is comfortable and can skip lots of those processes it will be much quicker.
Key question for me is will I always have a top which covers the waist area.

DP's a little narrower in the lapels to judge by the drawing. I hope they can keep going as they are one of the professional indies. Decent drafting and good customer care ime.

Yes, that one was on my 'shall I ' list, but I also have a similar pattern. DP's has some of the fullness with godets according to the blurb, as I recall. These are easy to add in, but for cold weather coating, how well would they work?

For those of us who sew, cheap, wear once clothes aren't a thing. Some fabrics don't wear well, whereas a good tweed will go on for decades.

Thanks for the snaps tip. I have one cardi that's been hanging around for ages for lack of snaps that don't fall off.
