Hi Kate. Nice to have you here. The jeans you make look great. There were many people interested in jeans making on the old forum, so you may yet end up contributing some valuable insights to discussions.
More stuff will be posted about fitting and figuration as time goes on, so I hope this will prove helpful.
Yorkshire is a great place for garment manufacture - a fair number of Tailors based there (Tom Mahon, Des Merrion, Darren Beaman), the home of the original Monty Burton's in Leeds, (my grandmother was a Burton's seamstress), Spencer's Trousers in Halifax, and world class cloth mills.
