Ginger Jeans Sewing Pattern - Closet Core Patterns
With a modern cut, Ginger Jeans are the daily staple you’ll reach for again and again. With a low and high rise and two different leg shapes, make yourself a wardrobe of beautiful me-made jeans!
View A features a comfortable low rise with narrow stovepipe legs and a traditional fold-over front pocket. View B is high-waisted with skinny legs and a pocket stay sewn into the center front. Ginger Jeans feature subtly shaped back pockets to highlight the curve of the bum and a higher back rise to prevent peekabooty.
Jeans: Stretch denim with at least 2% lycra. Very lightweight denims are not recommended for View A.
Lining: Medium weight wovens, such as quilting cotton.
