Finally, here are some pictures of the completed jeans

The only big criticisms I have are:
1) I didn’t making the pocket facing wide enough, so it has a tendency to flip out of the pocket. This is really annoying and just looks really bad in my opinion. I think if I buy some rivets and put a rivet at the top of the pocket, this problem will be partially mitigated by the extra support, but next time I need to cut the facing wider.
2) I didn’t cut the pocket bags wide enough. It looks less that awesome on the inside, and I think if they were actually wide enough it would help stop the facings from poking out.
3) I forgot to fully removing some of my basting that had been cut out, so I have some little threads sticking out along the side seams. I don’t know if anyone else will notice, but I do.
This was a fun project. I learned a lot and came out with a pretty nifty garment. I don’t think I am going to fade these, since as they are I feel pretty comfortable wearing these to work.
