I finished my second pair of Ginger Jeans this weekend and wore them to a Christmas with friends. I love this pair, too.
Lots of wrinkles in this pictures, but I think it is the hands in my pockets, making the pants pull across the front.
The fabric is from Mood - a sueded cotton, which has just a bit of spandex.
For this pair,
- I added 1" the the rise and 1-1/2" at the center back
- folded a small dart in the front pattern piece at the bottom of the zipper. I tapered the dart to nothing at the seam allowance. This really helped to eliminate the wrinkles in the front.
- I put 2 small snaps on the front waistband. I really like to use snaps on my waistbands but on the denim I will try a jeans button.
Changes for next time
Thanks to Trumbelina, I am going to do this adjustment for the third pair
After pinching out fabric on this black pair, I really think this will help tremendously.
On this pair I did use the skinny leg but not too skinny as I felt the fabric did not have alot of stretch. From experience, I have a pair of Loft skinny jeans and they do not have much stretch, it is the hardest pair of pants to pull over my feet! I did not want the same thing with these pair.
My denim has good stretch and I will use the pattern exactly for the skinny leg.
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I will be back next week but the rest of this week is for family.
