Description

Using your choice of: the Closet Case Ginger Jeans (skinny fit) or Morgan Jeans (boyfriend style), Cashmerette Ames Jeans (tailored) you will learn how to make yourself a gorgeous pair of denim jeans.

OR use the Thread Theory Fulford Jeans pattern to make a men’s pair of jeans!

The Ginger Jeans are designed for stretch denim can be made as either a comfortable low rise jean with narrow stovepipe legs or a high-waisted jean with skinny legs and a tummy-slimming pocket stay. The Morgan, slim boyfriend jeans are designed for non-stretch & selvedge denim. The Morgan is a mid-rise jean that fits snugly through the hip but relaxes and conforms to your curves with a little wear. The Ames jeans are tailored jeans, with the option to alter hip shape between Pear and Apple as well as being especially sized for curvy ladies.

The Fulford Jeans sewing pattern is a truly classic straight leg jean with a regular fit in the thigh. They feature a conservatively high rise reminiscent of vintage work jeans and sit just below the waist.
