My disclaimer; I received this pattern and a piece of beautiful stretch denim from Distinctive Sewing Supplies in exchange for blogging about my experience. Please know that the opinions expressed will be my own.
This is the view I’m making, but it will fit even a bit higher at my waist.

BTW, do you know you can go to the Jalie website and download the instructions? They’re available in French and English as a PDF and you can print the pages you need.
The next sewing step is completing the lined front pockets. I chose a turquoise coloured batik for the lining.
There are 3 pattern pieces to these pockets.
Shown are the pieces for the regular rise jeans, the ones for the low rise are similar, but shorter. The Front Pocket Yoke is cut from your jean fabric, the other two from lining.
The instructions were very clear, and the pockets went together perfectly.
hint: if you’re using batik for your lining, mark the wrong sides of each piece.
The front pockets are compete with 2 rows of top-stitching.
My next installment will be the fly-zipper!
Are you following this? Does it make sense so far? Any questions?
