    This PDF only jeans pattern includes a skinny and stovepipe leg option, both options featuring a tummy-slimming pocket stay. Hitting just below the belly button (about halfway between the low and high rise of the original Ginger Jeans), the Mid-Rise Ginger Jeans feature subtly shaped back pockets to highlight the curve of the bum, slimming side seams and a higher back rise to prevent peekabooty. Designed for stretch denim, Ginger Jeans will hug you in all the right places.

Ginger Jeans

I haven't ise the pattern yet, but just a look and I love it. The envelope, the pamphlet, the illustration art are so beautiful. Now I need a good time to sew a great looking jean.

Great Pattern

Pattern arrived earlier than anticipated and is easy to assemble. Pants fit great and I plan on making many more.

Not happy

The pattern instructions are difficult to follow. Did not match up with illustrations. Did not make sense. Illustrations differed from one to the other. Took me four hours to figure out how to put the pockets in. Two hours on the zipper. Had to be ripped out completely at least once. I’ve made wedding dresses,prom dresses, christening Dresses, so I know what I’m doing when it comes to sewing. Other reviewer’s commented how easy it was to do at a workshop. Probably because they had someone who already made these pants explaining the process. Rather than trying to follow the written instructions. Now that they’re finally finished they do look nice. But it certainly was not worth the time and effort it took to make this pair of jeans.

I did it!

The Ginger pattern is the bomb! I made the high rise view and sailed through the pattern. For years, a fly front has intimidated the daylights out of me and Ginger's directions made it a cinch. I made the first pair out of a less expensive stretch denim sourced locally because I thought it would be more of a "muslin". I wore them to work yesterday and the gals did not believe I made them myself. I will make a couple of fit tweaks on the pattern the next time I make them, but these are my new favorite jeans.
