Jeans, (Last) Installment #5

Here are the finished hems. Not much to them. Measure, cut, overlock, press up, and topstitch.

The jeans are done and will be worn on a family outing tomorrow. I'm hoping I can "whip up" a new top tonight. If not, I'll pull something from the drawer.

Front view (hemmed a tad long to compensate for residual shrinkage):

Waistband and re-opened pocket (and boy is my top twisted or what?):

Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
