One pattern, two ways: Ginger Jeans

14 Jun

It’s already the 2nd week of June and that means the 2nd IPM2016 contest: One pattern, two ways. For this conest we’re challenged to make two garments using the same pattern. You may make the same view twice or two different views/options of the same pattern.

I decided to make Version A & B of Closet Case’s Ginger Jeans. Version A (low rise with narrow legs) is of a light blue medium weight denim (97% cotton, 3% elastine) which I got from Ditto Fabrics. While version B (high-waisted  with skinny legs) is a black cotton twill (97% ctoon, 3% spandex) which I got from myfabrics.

I absolutly love this pattern – I made size 8 for both (the waist measuremnts are exact to mine and the hips are 1/2″ smaller than the real deal but it seems to work perfectly with 3% stretch). My blog for IMP2016 can be read here.
