I love the play of the stripes. It was fun to cut out and fun to sew. If you are going to sew this top be sure to look at Christina's blogpost about how it goes together. It really helped me out.
On the inside I used some random bias tape. I have an entire shoebox brimming over with bias tape. I inherited this from my husband's grandmother. She was quite the crafter and she passed all of that stuff down to me. I love having all the choices at my fingertips.
I didn't do a swayback adjustment but probably should have.
Also, I've gotten several responses from people saying, "YES! Let's do a jeans sew-along!" Should I start a thread over at PatternReview.com and we can gather supplies/patterns/etc? I want to do the Jalie jeans pattern that just came out and they don't ship until March 24th. I'll probably get mine the first week of April or so. We could start sewing in April? We could gather supplies starting now. How does that sound? I'm no fit expert but working together we can certainly get the advice we need, I bet. Or, if someone has a better idea, pipe up.
