Ginger jeans

Prepping my next project, yup I'm sewing the Ginger jeans!

Thoughts so far:

The paper pattern is printed in blue ink on tissue paper which means it's difficult to trace. I ended up cutting out my paper pattern which I promised myself I'd stop doing but I had no choice. 

The low rise option (view A) is still relatively high waisted for how I like to wear my jeans. I'm debating whether to sew them as they are or lower the waist. I'm relatively short bodied so I'm thinking that view A will be too high. Although the higher waist will be super flattering at hiding the "mum tum". Hmmm... Thoughts?

If you'd like to follow my progress I'm on Instagram @whatamymade and using the hashtag #amysewsgingerjeans. 
Also I'd like to point out this is the first time I've sewn jeans so very much a beginner!


  1. Wow, jeans you are brave! Good luck, I look forward to reading about how you get on!
