From the Closet Case Patterns Community
One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2020 is to make all my clothes and not purchase any ready-to-wear clothes for the entire year. I started with the Ginger Jeans, and I can say that I am pretty sure I will never purchase another pair of jeans again! The first pair I made, I realized early on that they were going to be a little big. But instead of altering, I decided to stick with the pattern exactly and follow Heather’s tutorial as closely as possible to get the techniques down. The pattern went together beautifully, and I found someone who absolutely loves the jeans. I went on to make a pair that fit me so well, I can’t wait to make more for every season (how many colors does stretch denim come in?). Thank you, Closet Case Patterns, for the great pattern and a fantastic on-line course. I’m now gearing up for the Jasika Blazer, and I’ll be looking for more patterns and classes in the future.
Just finished the low rise version in a black stretch denim. This is my second pair, and while I do love them and wear them, I think I prefer the high waist version. I did a Hong Kong seam finish which is beautiful. My next pair will be out of a cream stretch denim to go with my Sienna jacked. I make about 90 percent of my clothing now and Closet Case Patterns are my favorite!!
Love the pattern. They sewed up very well and I only had to adjust the size a wee bit across the hips. Used a size 12. .
Now finding time to sew up the Blazer pattern I ordered with it. Thank you
This is the first pair of jeans I've made and I wish I could show you all a picture but they are a bit too tight. The muslin I made was too baggy so I did some adjustments and used my good fabric and then they were too tight. Overall I love the jeans and will make more only in the correct size.
I'm teaching a jeans class soon and selected the Ginger jeans as a choice for the class participants. I've made two pair in preparation for the class and must say I do love them. The instructions are clear, helpful and include all those little things you need to know about when you make jeans. I know the class is going to love the pattern too!
I’ve been sewing for about three years and have been unable to move past the “advanced beginner” level. I’ve been wanting to up my sewing game, but I have great difficulty reading and understanding sewing directions. I’m definitely a visual learner. Enter the Ginger Jeans online course! It’s exactly what I needed for success.. I was able to complete a beautiful pair of jeans without even opening the directions. The are some small changes I will make next time, but hey...practice makes perfect! Thanks Closet Case for a great online course!
