With a modern cut, Ginger Jeans are the daily staple you’ll reach for again and again. With a low and high rise and two different leg shapes, make yourself a wardrobe of beautiful me-made jeans!

View A features a comfortable low rise with narrow stovepipe legs and a traditional fold-over front pocket. View B is high-waisted with skinny legs and a pocket stay sewn into the center front.  Ginger Jeans feature subtly shaped back pockets to highlight the curve of the bum and a higher back rise to prevent peekabooty.

Great support - when wearing the jeans AND when making them!

I used the Closet Core video series to help me make my Ginger Jeans. The video tutorials are SUPERB! Very clear instructions, great filming so I could see every step. I loved every minute of making these jeans and learning how to get that great fit. Recommendations galore! great job Close Core Patterns!

I made the straight leg jeans. They are fantastic and fit beautifully. I think the detailed instructions made all the difference.

If you can't buy them, sew them!

I bought this pattern, because I loved the general shape with a high-waist, and knew I could use them as a starting point for the wide leg, cropped jeans in fashion right now. It took some trial and error, but I am so happy I dove in! The pattern is very easy adjust and the instructions easy to follow. I will definitely be making more with varying leg shapes.

Ginger jeans

I had never made jeans or trousers before and had only put in one zip so I was a little nervous starting my ginger jeans. I bought some cheap stretch denim and just followed the steps especially baste testing the fit. I had to only make minimal changes.
I liked them so much I made a second pair straight away in stretch polartec lined denim- great for walking in cold weather. This time I made the high waist with wider leg and I love the fit. I plan to make at least one more pair in black denim but some shorts would be good too...
