Ginger+Jedediah

I had next to no clothes that fit and Hugo's party was fast approaching.
The Twins put together this gorgeous ensemble but I was very nervous about the white jeans.
'No, I was not too old but I must not make them too tight'.
I used the excellent Ginger jeans that I had made once before. My last pair are a wee bit firm so I left extra ease with these.
I shouldn't have, as I used a very stretchy thick denim I purchased from Spotlight and last time I used a rigid denim. You can guess what has happened.
They have grown, but I don't care they are so comfy I could do yoga in them and I know now to take them in a bit more.
See that lovely fly finish?
Seriously, buy this pattern for the instructions.
And look at the lovely tummy ease I could add, a little too much in hindsight and by the end of the evening I looked a wee bit podgy but I was so comfortable.
Be kind!
I have quite a tummy and normally jeans are so uncomfortable, these are bloody brilliant.
I hope I can find some more of this denim in black.
I need to take the waistband off and remove a 'V' from the back and an inch or so off the waistband itself.
Once that is done, I think they will be perfect.
I look forward to my next turn of the rota. I have some lovely blue denim with the perfect amount of stretch for my next pair.
Hugo designed his own outfit choosing both fabrics from Eliza's of Sunshine.
He requested another pair of Jedediah's.
(Love it when you get a pattern that works)
More fabric from our Melbourne shopping trip.
Cocoa coloured stretch cotton sateen.
Proper smart!

Thanks for popping in.

  6. Lovely - both you and Hugo! Honestly I have never seen a bad version of the Gingers, they look so good on so many people and everyone says such good things about them. If I was more of a jeans wearer I probably would have attempted them by now. Still, I won't say never! I think I really do need to attempt those Jeds for my big boys though. I like Hugo's fabulous curly hair too!

    This pattern is brilliant, not a super fast sew but so worth the time.
