Heather's patterns are well drafted and her blog is full of tutorials for any questions you might have. This is the first time I have followed her zipper tutorial, I decided to try it as her button-fly tutorial is a keeper.
I loved the first pair I made in November, they were a 10 oz bull denim. Fit was great.
I put them on last week and ripped the butt. I almost cried. Either they shrank or I grew since before the holidays! I will be mending them, and they WILL fit again!
My second pair were cords. I love these AND they still fit.
My third pair are the charm. I love them. I traced the high rise combined with the stovepipe leg like my first pair. I added extra at the side seams to compensate for my non stretch fabric and for ease in fitting.
I raised the back pockets by 1/2" but they still look a tad low to me.
I also embroidered a leather tag for the back. love those elephants!
So if you haven't tried the Ginger jeans yet, I highly recommend!
and if you can't sew
Read a good book!
