Great response back from Bootstrap

Hi folks. Excellent answer back from Bootstrap on the Vado jeans photo, now posted in comments in preceeding post. Since these folks are a start up I am definitely going to be seeing a pair of their jeans as soon as I source materials. Stay tuned.

I will be trying Bootstrap jeans soon too. I want to see how they fit a short chubby girl woman with a thick waist but comparatively slim hips! I might try a flare with a medium rise. Looking forward to seeing yours!

I have had GREAT success with Bootstrap patterns and their customer service is exceptional. If I were not losing weight right now, I would buy every pattern. It's economical and the fit is superb.

Thanks to your post, I just bought a pair of the Bootstrap boyfriend jeans--and got a message from Yuliya asking if I needed any help! Thanks for turning me on to them, and good luck with your jeans.
