Update for Men’s and Women’s Jeans

I was two minds about top stitching the outside seam for show or the inside seam for strength in the original video and eBook for the women’s jeans.

I’ve made quite a few pairs over the years and looking back at them, I more usually stitch and top stitch the inside leg seam first. I have then been finishing with top stitching the outside seam a little way down to below the pocket for show and strength for the pocket.
Therefore, sew the back seam, sew the inside leg seam from trouser hem to hem. Top stitch. Sew the outside leg seam from waist to hem. Top stitch as far as you are able to, from the waist, down the side seam and back up.

After wearing jeans since my teens (a long time ago) and sewing many pairs over the years, I only recently noticed that the back yoke on jeans is usually stitched with the seam pressed down and therefore the top stitching is below the stitch line! I now stitch them that way. Shirts and skirts that have a yoke are always stitched with the seam pressed up!
