Read More» Ginger Jeggings Tuesday, February 21 2017

Creation: Ginger Jeggings

Fabrics Used: Black Stretch Denim

The Visionary: Justine, SewCountryChick

Our Thoughts: These jeggings look polished enough for daily wear, yet are extraordinarily comfortable - what more could you ask for?

 

What I did was use my Ginger pattern, but I changed it to a jegging pattern like my Jalie Eleanore jeans. I had worked hard to get a good fit on that pattern and wanted to try it again in the stretchy fabric. A little experiment, if you will. Since the fabric is a stretchy knit, and much stretchier than an actual stretch woven denim, I traced my pattern and shaved off a few inches from my size 8 in the hips, and a little down the legs to make them smaller to allow for more negative ease. I really just eyeballed it and used a pair of leggings I have in my closet for reference. Luckily, they fit well! I had to make the yoke smaller and make the front pocket facing smaller too, since it’s a faux pocket, like on my Eleanore’s. I also followed the instructions from the Eleanore pattern to make the waistband. The fly is also faux, and just stitched closed and topstitched. So easy!
