Sewing jeans has always been on my list of clothing items I wanted to tackle, but there was always something that held me back. The reality is that it was more fear than anything, they were just so darn intimidating. The button fly alone was enough for me to only ever make elastic waist pants, ha! When Lauren of Baste + Gather put out a tester call for her jeans pattern, Birkin Flares, I couldn’t fill out the tester form fast enough. Can I just quickly skip to the end really quick and say, my first pair fit like a glove!
