Can you see what I did for the neckband?? I did it just like the Jeans Gaposis Fix from Emilie. I made the band and then used a larger seam allowance in the middle so the neckband would be shorter in the middle. I'm not explaining this very well, am I?? I'll take a picture for you.
I hope to finish my Jalie jeans this weekend too. I did a sample for the pockets. They won't be exactly like this. I will be using red instead of orange for the middle detail. It's a free pattern from Embroidery Emotions. I left out several of the colors and skipped them so my design was not so dense.
Here's the actual size compared to the pocket size. I think I'll do it diagonally like this.
