I adore them. I think they are just the cutest little jeans ever. So, since I miscut this pair of test jeans, the shorter length ended up being a perfect fix.
I dare not show you the top of the jeans, with the misplaced button, horrid fly front and pocket placement that only accentuates my flat butt. But trust me when I tell you the fit is fine, other than just another minor adjustment to the waist to crotch depth , which, duh, I didn't even think about until I saw the
Silhouette Patterns Webcasts about fitting jeans. (thanks to Debbie, a reader, who turned me on to this online treasure)
So, I dare say, I'm going to do it again. Now that I've worked out most of the issues and understand the construction, I can say with certainty that the time was worth it this week. I will make a pair of jeans that will fit this narrow-hipped, thick-waisted, short and flat-butted body of mine!
And I will wear this little cropped jeans today because even if they are not the prettiest things under that long top, they fit well and are comfortable and will be perfect for getting a pedicure with my two favorite girls on the face of the earth....my daughters!
