I finally did it! I’ve finally sewn myself a pair of jeans! I always said I never would. When I was taking sewing lessons as a kid my teacher would always say ‘just don’t, they never work out’ and she really wasn’t kidding, so many kids made awful, ill-fitting jeans. I don’t wear pants or jeans much, I mostly just wear dresses, but jeans seem to be making a big comeback and I just had to try it! For these jeans I used the Ginger jeans pattern from Closet Case Files.
My favourite pair of cords had ‘Lucky You” embroidered on the fly shield and I always thought it was so silly, I had to add it to my jeans! That’s whats so great about sewing your own clothes, you can personalize it in secret little ways!
