Vogue 2442 - The EXACT jeans fit of Calvin Klein

Vogue 2442 envelope front
What: Vogue 2442, Misses Jeans
Description from the pattern envelope: 
Tight-fitting jeans or slim, straight skirt, has fly front zipper closing, contour buttoned waistband with belt carriers, shaped back yoke, side front slanted pockets with right front change pocket and back patch pockets. Note: to buy the proper size pattern, check your measurements with the Calvin Klein Size guide below.
 Year of publication: 1980
Material used: 100% cotton medium weight denim, Günterman jeans thread, metal zipper, button and some rivets.

By the description, this pattern seemed to be the answer to my prayers and would make all my dreams come true. I compared my measurements with the "CK size guide" printed on the envelopes back, and by them I was a size 10. My waist measures 72cm and hips 92cm.

Pattern Review Vintage Sewing Contest 2014 and as a bonus I get infront of the camera

Back in May I participated in Pattern Reviews "Vintage Sewing Contest". For this contest, a pattern was considered vintage when it was published before 1980. 
At first I was set on sewing something from vintage Estonian magazine "Soviet Woman", but sadly no designs that I was able to track down appealed to me.
So enter my October Burda from 1967!
