I love making my favourite patterns multiple times – I figure when you know something works for you, it seems silly not to go wild. So for the ‘One pattern, Two ways’ contest I thought I’d make both version A & B of the Ginger Jeans pattern from Closet Case.
Version A with a low waist and narrow legs from Washed Mid Blue Stretch Denim (97% cotton, 3 % elastine), with royal blue top stitching thread and straberry print pockets. They’re very sweet.
Version B is high-waisted and with skinny legs. Made out of black cotton twill (97% cotton, 3% spandex), no top stitching thread, and black and pink floral pockets and lined waist band. I decided not to attach the belt loops to B and used a Bachelor jean button. If version A is sweet, then these ones are pretty savoury.
On both I repositioned the back pockets moving them up almost 3/4″ and in nearly 1/2″ which I think is a much more flattering position for them. I also applied fusible interfacing to the pretty lining of both pairs.
