Closet Case Floral Ginger jeans

A MCBN post .June 219

My Closet Case ginger Jeans

Who says jeans have to be Denim,and who said they have to be plain?
I have spent a few weeks exploring various patterns and fabrics and came to the conclusion that so long as you choose the type of fabric recommended on the pattern (eg stretch, woven etc) and you take the time to fit your garment properly you really can use any pattern in whatever style suits you best,  and choose  a fabric appropriate for the season.

Very summery don't you think? Perfect for holiday drinks people-watching, with a pullover for when it gets cooler.

Making jeans is not as daunting as you may first think.

Measure, fit, measure, and fit again and again until you achieve the fit that you like. And please don't forget to make a test garment especially if you have never made trousers before.

I would love to hear your comments. Have you made jeans? Did you enjoy the process? I did and I won't ever buy a pair of ready made again.🙁

Thank you
