Later today I’ll be debuting the new Closet Case pattern, but I thought I’d start off by introducing another project I’ve been working on the last few months: my first ebook!
Sewing Your Own Jeans has been a real labour of love. As I’ve started teaching Ginger workshops, I’ve learned even more about making and fitting jeans and wanted to offer an expanded and improved jeans-making course. While the sewalong is still available on the blog, this ebook offers a lot more photos and information in a beautifully designed PDF format. You can take it with you, and easily follow along on your tablet, computer or phone while you’re working on your jeans.
The ebook is over 90 pages long and features 220 images. Jeans-making is broken down into 13 bite size lessons so you can follow along at your own pace. I’ve also included special bonuses like a printable jeans-making cutting list, and a chapter dedicated to hacking your skinny jeans in flared jeans!
While this ebook is a great companion to the Ginger Jeans pattern, I’ve tweaked the instructions to make sure they can be applied to any jeans pattern. Hoping you guys will find this helpful on your jean-making journeys; it’s available now in the shop!
