On n'a jamais trop de jeans, non?

I made a welt pocket! I'm enjoying the challenge of the Sasha trousers. I made a wearable toile and now making another pair for all occasions.

jeans details! hardware is a gold zipper fly kit purchased from @closetcase.patterns awhile back; fabric is a stretch denim from my local fabric store (I have some Cone Mills waiting on my stash but wanted to try with something cheaper first); pockets are some @birchfabrics quilting cotton I bought ages ago before I realized I don't wear prints 😂

I made jeans!! these are part #selfdrafted / part #gingerjeans and made using the @closetcase.patterns jeans ebook + fitting guide (both AMAZING resources, highly recommend). I drafted some jean shorts this summer and then hacked the ginger legs onto them for these and made some more fitting adjustments to both the crotch and legs while I was at it.

fun fact: I've never bought a pair of high waisted jeans because my booty to lower back curve is nuts, but sewing is magic ✨

if you're scared of making jeans, I highly recommend starting with jean shorts first! less fabric wasted if they don't turn out amazing (cuts down on the anxiety at the very least), and you get to practice crotch curve fitting and all the techniques and hardware installation on something a little smaller. then you can try again with legs like I did 😊

Jeans update: printed pattern has arrived and I've been watching the first couple of Heather-Lou's tutorials on the Sew Your Dream Jeans e-course. I feel like I've learned lots already and know there will definitely be some alterations made to the pattern before my jeans can come together: my hip measurement and leg width are 3 sizes apart so will need to grade the leg width, I'm also going to need to remove some length from the leg - but that's whats cool about making your own, you're creating jeans to fit your body not fitting your body to a generic size chart in a shop. Hoping to get started on the actual fabric this weekend!

Et la braguette fût!!!!! 💃💃🎉🎉
And here is the zipper!!! #gingerjeans #closetcasepatterns
My second pair of @closetcase.patterns #carolynpajamas finished! I started these before Christmas and have only just had some time to finish them. Love the dashwood norland fabric from John Lewis. #closetcasepatterns #sewing #memade #sewcialists #sewing #dressmaking #carolynpyjamas
Looking a bit moody here! Wearing #memade today, #gingerjeans shorts and a self drafted cami. My goal is to finally get this pattern done and ready to sell. I’ve been working on a cury cami (read cami for boobs) forever but keep suffering from any sis paralysis! Any who, it will happen. Fabric from @drapersfabrics . #drapersfamily #drapersfabrics @closetcase.patterns #closetcasepatterns #memadeeveryday #makersgonnamake #nzsew #sewnz
It took 4 tries to get the fly right, but I finally have a functioning zipper! #sewingjeans #morganboyfriendjeans #closetcasepatterns
The inside of my #kalleshirtdress  in #cottonandsteelfabric Used the selvage to make a tag. I'm making it for a gift but it's so pretty 😍
#sewing #texassews #shirtmonth #closetcasepatterns
Started my #morganjeans by #closetcasepatterns and did the basteing thing to get a preliminary fit. Except I realize I have zero clue about interpreting these clues. However, I’m forging ahead with the knowledge the second pair will be better! Will still baste and try stuff on as I go. These worries have the benefit of canceling out my rivet worries! 😁 Obsessively hanging on every word from @closetcase.patterns in the Sew Your Own Jeans ebook and pants fitting PDFs. #jeanuary #sewingjeans #sewcialists #sewersofinstagram #handmadewardrobe

Yay for a good mail day!  So excited to give these patterns a try.  I think these will be March projects, along with the #kalleshirtdress which I'll make as part of #sewmystyle2018 
I've never owned pajamas with long enough pants or sleeves.  I've also never had a pair of dressier pants that have fit right, so I'm so excited!!! #carolynpajamas #sashatrousers #closetcasepatterns #sewinggoals #sewist #neverenoughtime #winnipegsews
🇬🇧It appears I may have myself a (completely crazy 😜) coat
🇫🇷Et bien voilà. Je me suis cousue un manteau (qui pique les yeux). Et le douzième vêtement de #jecoudsmagarderobecapsule2017 est terminé. Oh yeah.

#kalleshirt! #fancymirrorinarentalmansion! I lengthened the cropped shirt 2” and did a 3” fba, cause, well, nursing. I suuuuuuuper love this shirt. #isew #sewcialists #handmadewardrobe #kalleshirtdress #closetcasepatterns
Still not sure whether this cropped #kalle shirt by @closetcase.patterns is more 'futuristic replicant' or 'retro geisha'. Either way, it's got nice guts (despite the lack of ironing involved) And i think it might me a liberty of London print from @wearethefabricstore with non-matching vintage buttons so I guess it's pretty fancy  #closetcasefiles #closetcasepatterns #libertyoflondon #kallecroppedshirt

It’s time to choose an outer fabric for my waterproof #kellyanorak. My favorites are the first 2 swatches in the first photo. The peacoat navy sample is thinner and a little stiffer than the 2-tone charcoal. The job of this jacket will be to serve as a light winter layer for traveling so I will add both a fun lining (ideas anyone?!) and either thinsulate or wool batting for insulation (ideas anyone?!). #decisionsdecisions #technicalfabric #closetcasepatterns #sundaysewing

#closetcasepatterns #ebonytop in pea soup colored #stretchvelvet. Love this pattern. Lots of sewing but way too cold to get outside for photos. Plan B - work bathroom selfies. Ugggh. #sewing #sewcialists #ebonydress #closetcasefiles #favoritecolor #selfieloathing
I sewed up the Carolyn pajamas and City Park Tee. I wrote about the patterns on the blog.

After listening to @lovetosew.podcast and @closetcase.patterns talking about facing your fears with sewing, I stopped procrastinating about sewing myself a garment (because it won’t be perfect or I won’t like the way it looks on me) and just did it! I’m so happy with the result. It’s an Appleton dress by @cashmerette ❤️ Thanks for the great podcast and the pep talk girls! 😊👍🏻 I even pushed past my overlocking disasters (last pic) 😩#lovetosewpodcast #cashmerettepatterns #closetcasepatterns

So, this is happening this weekend! Super excited to start on these two patterns. These are my start to #curvyyearofsewing challenge. Hoping to get them traced, cut, and #soiultimatetrousers basted for fitting by the end of the holiday weekend. .

Never done back welt pockets before. I don’t they’re technically correct, but they look good and they look even so...😏😁. #imakemyownclothes #sewing #sewingblogger #closetcasepatterns #isew
Cut out some #carolynpajamas #closetcasepatterns from Yucca voile I’ve been hoarding ....
I’m ready to wear my @closetcase.patterns Ginger Jeans 🙌🏼 I finished them last month, but the Cone Mills denim I used doesn’t have as much stretch as the denim I had used for my previous pairs and they were superrrr tight on me 🤦🏻‍♀️. But I’ve been eating vegan food exclusively and getting in workouts with @ml_intrinsicresistance and now they fit 😹🙌🏼🎉🎈Also, I’m calling these my True Love Jeans because I was listening to the band True Love and I used @libselliott True Love fabric for the pockets and waistband 💁🏻‍♀️ #madebymisscrayolacreepy #closetcasepatterns #truelovefabric

Another of pair of #gingerjeans and even though I made some adjustments they’re still not quite right, second photo shows crotch wrinkles (hate that word 🙄) and still have some knee issues. Denim from @guthrieghani and pocket stays are leftovers. Will have to try again!!! #wontgiveup #closetcasepatterns #sewjeanuary #sewmystyle2018 #sewingjeans #handmadewardrobe
#closetcasepatterns Morgan jeans cut out and basted up, ready for a jolly good fitting. Learnt from my ginger experience by cutting a larger size at the waist but reckon they’ll need some taking in. I just went ahead and did a sway back adjustment already. Wish me luck 🤞#ilovesewing #sewinginleeds

Perfectly lit, high res marketing shots are wonderful for image and traffic, but it's these genuine reaction shots that warm the heart. 
This is the big project I eluded to earlier in the week.  An emerald and houndstooth wool #clarecoat for my sister in law.  How great does she look in it?! Many thanks for a well written pattern and lifesaving sew along by @closetcase.patterns!! Fabric from @moodfabrics

I'm very pleased with my new gingers but as with about all my previous pants I wish I made them a bit tighter. I even skipped prewashing hoping to fool myself to make them tight enough. So there's a whole lot of pattern adjustments in these;
.
*curved yoke
*moved the inseam 2cm towards the back at the ankles
*flat seat adjustment (tried the fish eye dart but somehow it just made the back wrinkles worse 🤔)
*scooped out the seat and crotch curve and added some at the hips instead (back only).
*shortened the legs 4cm.
. 
I think it worked, finally 🤗💃👖 Now I need to get my hands on some more denim.

When I last posted about making the Ginger Jeans I over optimistically said I was 75 percent done lol 🤣. I take that back. It was more like 25 percent...oops 😳. Getting there slowly but surely.

The January challenge is called the Sunny Dress by Friday Patterns. There was a shirt option so I chose that one since I hardly wear dresses. BUT I have left over black knit fabric for the dress portion of this pattern design. Stay tuned.

Today I’m wearing my #namedclothing #jamiejeans in denim from #clothhouse while sewing my #closetcasepatterns #gingerjeans 👖These were the first pair of jeans I made 😊If I can do it, you can do it! It took three tries to get the fly right when I made these a few years ago solo but I did it 👏👏👏 Our Jeans class this weekend is *sold out* but the next one is in February. Details online. #handmadejeans #justdoit
Freshly made #morganjeans and my first #makenine2018 complete. 
Couldn't be happier with the fit of these, I have a feeling this might be worn everyday for the the foreseeable future .

Beginnings of a #clarecoat. Managed to cut out all the wool and interfacing before cutting fatigue set in. Best to stop before any mistakes get made! (Charity shop green wool, interfacing from stash)

👋🏻 Hello! I’m still here, and still sewing... just more slowly than before. Baby is now a toddler 😱 and I’m back at work, so I’m sewing here and there for 10 minutes at a time, rather than hours at a time.

I made this #kalleshirt a couple of months ago before going back to work. I went with the covered placket because I’d never done one before and love how it turned out. I love the cropped shirt length with high waisted black jeans, and this crisp cotton gives the shirt a nice,  structured look. 👌🏻 #sewing #imakemyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #canadasews #torontosews #closetcasepatterns

Meine #gingerjeans in der Mid Rise Variante hat nun auch endlich den Weg auf meinen Blog gefunden #linkinbio ich bin so begeistert von der Hose, die nächste ist auch schon in Planung #closetcasefiles #closetcasepatterns #memade #nähenmachtglücklich #nähenisttoll #sewing #sewingtime
Ginger update! I almost never cut the seam allowance in corners. If it is a 90 degree angle it most likely will be sharp anyway. The key is to fold it tightly and for the waist band in jeans I want to keep the extra body. Then I'll just hammer down the bulkiest parts. 
For this pair I chose to sew an extra row of topstitching in a coordinating color to see if it will prevent wrinkling (the first pair pictured for comparison). I did a second fitting before topstitching the inseams and it seems ok. Almost done now 😌👖

Look what came in the mail today! I won’t be able to start this until spring because I think there will be a little hammering involved. Has anyone made the Kelly Anorak Jacket Pattern? This will be my first Indie pattern. I think I am in for a bit of a challenge! Comment on this pattern and let me know the “Ins and outs”. #kellyanorakjacket #ilovesewing #ilovetosew #anorakjacket #sewingproject #isew #kellyanorakjacketpattern #closetcasepatterns #closetcaseanorakjacket
As promised I present a whole bunch of pictures of ginger jeans in the making. First out is a finished front and some machine maintenance. I had no canned air and this proved to work pretty well too 😀 and all lint is now removed 👏. The first fitting was ok in the front and a bit more wrinkles than I hoped for in the back (sorry no picture). Sigh, this is version 5 trying to get rid of that problem 🤷🤦At least a small fix made it somewhat better, we'll se how it turns out. I also rushed ahead and tried out the flowery rivets and I think they'll work well.

The first fitting was ok in the front and a bit more wrinkles than I hoped for in the back (sorry no picture). Sigh, this is version 5 trying to get rid of that problem 🤷🤦At least a small fix made it somewhat better, we'll se how it turns out. I also rushed ahead and tried out the flowery rivets and I think they'll work well. . #lovesewing  #visytokiga  #jeansmaking  #gingerjeans  #closetcasepatterns  #sewingtips  #jeansfit  #sygarderobenmedenplan  #sewistsofinstagram  #sewingbee 
Still catching up on last year's makes. This is a second #kalleshirt in a gorgeous cotton/linen chambray. I know I'm on a winner when hubby, who doesn't like boxy shapes and whose usually comment on everything I make is 'it should be more fitted', likes it 😆

1)Back pocket detail. The outside and inside of the same seam. I'm pleased with the outside but it's a good thing that the inside is hidden. .
2) My most used presser foot, although not ideal with the open toe for straight stitches it works so well as an edge guide and lets me use the built-in walking foot on my Pfaff, IDT®
.
3) A bit of interfacing both here and there. I used a woven one for durability. I have lengthened the pockets a few centimeters, they were so small on the original. Maybe I'll even manage a princess seam finish inside the pockets this time.

#closetcasepatterns #kalleshirtdress number 2. This time in a fabulous check from #drapersfabrics . This is the popover version with a slight lowered front hem.

I think I’m about 75 percent to the finish line to finishing my first pair of jeans! 👖Everything is constructed except the waistband and finalizing the fit and back pockets. I survived that zipper fly and the pattern instructions and sew along were super helpful that it was such a less intimating process than first imagined. Crossing my fingers that I can make the fit adjustments needed 😬 but if not it was a great learning experience and I will definitely be tackling another pair! #sew #sewing #isew #isewmyownclothes #memade #handmade #handmadewardrobe #gingerjeans #closetcasepatterns #jeans #topstitch

I'm going to be doing my #makenine2018 a little differently (and hopefully more effectively) this year. For the next nine days I'm going to document a pattern (or concept) with a textile pairing that I already have, and on day ten do the standard retrospective grid. I'm a terrible planner for my hobbies (I use it all up on work I think), and I'm hoping this will actually make this challenge more achievable for me than just throwing a bunch of beautiful patterns into a grid with no logical thought. 😹 So here is the first (which is a bit of a cheat since I started these this weekend): make one of nine - #closetcasepatterns #morganjeans in a scrummy #conemillsdenim from the original Morgan Jeans denim kit (better late than never?!). #sewersofinstagram #sewcialist #2018makenine

#tropical vibes for January thanks to @raystitch 's amazing #parrot fabric! 🌴🐔🐧🐦🐤#whyistherenoparrotemoji #closetcasefiles #kalleshirt #closetcasepatterns #raystitch #memade #memadeeveryday #sewistsofinstagram #isew #handmade
As you see, I’m not one for creating within the appropriate season. I wanted to make a wearable test pair of #Gingerjeans. My previous pair fit horribly. This one is much better! I see I still have to accommodate for my sway back, make the waist band a bit smaller around, and perhaps consider backing off the extra 1” in waist height. What can I say, I’m in love with a high-waisted jean! I’m looking forward to my next pair!

For those interested: my ill-fit issues for my first pair of Gingers were in the waist. It was waaaaaay too big. Also, following my size as per the envelope got “my size”, I think, but a size that was much to big and baggy for my personal tastes. .

my spoils from Fabric Depot/ Bolt Fabric in Portland! Super excited to start making again ☺️ #fabricaholic #boltpdx #boltfabric #fabricdepot #closetcasepatterns #libertyoflondon #grainlinestudio
The #clarecoat is coming along! All my pieces are cut - now the fun begins!! #closetcase #closetcasepatterns #30minssewingdaily
Finally managed to decide on my #makenine2018
1: The Drop Set by MadeIt Patterns (which was free with Simply Sewing Mag). 2: Bettine Dress by Tilly and the Buttons 3: Overalls by Burda-Young. 4: Kelly Anorak by Closet Case Patterns. 5: The Jenna Jump Suit by Cotton and Chalk. 6: Ginger Jeans (skinny) by Closet Case Patterns. 7: Ultimate Trousers by Sew Over It. 8: Agnes Top by Tilly and the Buttons. 9: Ultimate Shift dress by Sew Over It. I’m so pleased with my choice and these are definitely wardrobe staples for me. The one I’m most looking forward to is the one that I am most terrified by and that’s the Kelly Anorak!!!! “Feel the fear and do it anyway!!” Lol 😆 I know I’ve made an Ultimate shift dress already but I’m going the make the longer sleeve this time and fit it a little better! Wish me luck and feel free to poke me with a stick if I’m lagging behind a little! 😁 #closetcasepatterns #sewoverit #tillyandthebuttons #burdayoung #madeitpatterns #cottonandchalk #dressmaking #dressmaker #sewing #makeyourownclothes

I spent a bit of time thinking about my #makenine2018 plans. It’s a bit looser than last years but hopefully achievable 
1) and 9) these gorgeous prints are just in my stash ... they really need to be in my wardrobe 
2) a #inthefolds #peplumtop in this soft #libertysilk 
3) Another #blackwoodcardigan (or two) #helenscloset 
4) a #soicocojacket in a black linen mix
5) long sleeved #kielodress in this B&W knit
6) I have the grey stretch denim for my third #gingerjeans #closetcasepatterns 
7) I have two liberty prints to make two shirts ... I just need to get on it!
8) I need more trousers and I LOVE my #mnflint pair I made last year so more of these!

#KalleShirtdress crop top by @closetcase.patterns in chambray! First project on my Janome 8900! Pattern and fabric from @threadfabric_ . Pants are #papercutpatterns #guisepants #closetcasepatterns #handmadewardrobe #memadeeveryday #isew #sewcialists
#bestnine2017. Åbenbart har jeg en preference for finske designere, da 7 ud af 9 stykker tøj er lavet på baggrund af finske mønstre. ———-
My #bestnine2017. Apparently I have a preference for Finnish designers, since 7 of my 9 makes in the collection is from either @namedclothing or Ottobre Design.

Last one from 2017, @soveryshannon #veronikacardi. Something in my brain clicked while knitting this—I finally feel like I “get” knitting. It’s a great first sweater project and suuuuper cozy. Worn here with my #gingerjeans and a @papercutpatterns #riseturtleneck 〰️

Back in the sewing room - woohoo! 😀 I think ’ve got too much that I want to make, because I’m running around in circles making nothing... Best to sit down and do some planning! 📝 To start, here’s a list of my last year’s favourite makes; my #2017topnine . I figure this will give me some direction for 2018...👚👕👖
.
My nine favourite makes are 1) #oliviawrapdress by #namedclothingpatterns I’ve made two, and they get lots of wear. The one in the picture is made of a green (slightly too) heavy sweatshirt fabric from #stoffogstil 2) A #blackwoodcardigan by #helenscloset in merino wool 3) A #kalleshirt by #closetcasepatterns in cotton chambray 4) An #andersonblouse by #sewoveritlondon in blue viscose from #minervacrafts 5) An #azaraskirt by #deeranddoe .  I made a test version in a cheap crepe fabric, loved it and kept the test... 6) #atelierbrunette fabrics are fantastic. I used some to make an #evedress , pattern by #sewoveritlondon 7) The #closetcasepatterns  #gingerjeans that I made for my daughter are a must on this list, and so is 8) A #naniiro cotton sateen #kochikimono by #papercutpatterns . Finally number 9) My best coat (the only one I’ve made so far); my #makersatelier #shawlcollarcoat in boiled wool from #merchantandmills . 
Next up: My 2018make nine...
