Additional Notes

This paper pattern includes all pattern pieces and instructions with illustrations

It's a winner. I'll be making pair #6 soon, I think.

I followed a lot of the fitting tips and I think some of my sizing issue had to do with just choosing the wrong size, but the legs still seemed rather loose for skinny legs. That said, the fitting tips offered by Closet Case solved that problem. Can't wait to make again!

The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Also, all resources that are available for the Ginger Jeans are invaluable!

I love it. I have 3 more cut out...

I found that even though I'm the exact 5'4" height for the pattern I need to shorten it in the leg significantly 2+ inches. And Closet Case Patterns added some adjustment to the crotch area to newer versions of the pattern that should help with the fit. I needed to do a lot of adjusting for low butt, thin thigh, etc. both adjustments that should now be included with the new changes.

Amazing Jeans Pattern and primer for any fitted pant.
