Another One! Jalie 3461 Eleonore Pull-on Jeans

It’s not too often that I make 3 versions of the same pattern, one right after another!  But this pattern has me hooked.  A burgundy stretch twill called my name.

onI detailed my changes this time, and here’s what I changed.

added to riseI added 1 1/2 inches to the rise.  Note that the increase is about 2 inches below the waist.  No pic, but I did the front, too.

enlarged pocket



I made the pocket larger on this pair too.  The original is on top of the new pattern piece.  The proportions are better.




elasticI cut the back elastic 2 inches shorter than the pattern piece and the front elastic 1 inch shorter.

waistband pinned


No change here, but this is the waistband pinned to the jeans, before serging it all together.


waistband attachedAn inside shot after serging the waistband to the jeans.  Notice there are no front yoke pieces?  I ran out of fabric.  They were fake anyway.

front detailsAll my top stitching was done with Sulky 12 weight cotton thread in black with a twin needle.  Stitch length of 4mm.

Schmetz 6.0 100Size 60/100, available at Pine Ridge Knit & Sew in Trenton.  I wound some of the thread onto a bobbin and used that for the second needle.  Regular thread in the bobbin.

hem detail


The hem and the inseam, twin needle top-stitched.
