  1. I love making jeans. I thought I ran across organic denim source but now I cannot remember where. Argh. Does that denim stretch out much after wearing? I love your hand stitching!

      This denim holds it shape really well, the pics above were taken on day 2 of wear. I did just see that Organic Cottons Plus just stocked some indigo denim. Thanks so much!

    These are so beautiful! They are truly unique and you inspire me to really personalizing my next pair. I love your attention to detail and the use of embroidery stars to secure the pockets and belt loops. What a great idea! The pockets are extremely pretty, you must have one of those fancier embroidery machines.

      Thanks so much! The pockets are hand embroidered but my Singer stylist did the star stitch. I really do love adding the embellishments to make them unique!

    Your hand embroidery is BEAUTIFUL!
    You’ve perfected the jeans and they look terrific. Thank you for the pattern suggestion. Have been looking for a nice jean pattern.
    Cheers,

      Thanks so much Marie! It’s really a great basic pattern. The Craftsy class really helped me perfect the fit. Vogue Patterns magazine had an issue awhile back on sewing artisanal jeans that shows how to cut the pattern on the selvedge too which I really want to try. :)

  8. wow, beautiful details! the fit is spot on too, great job! I have the Ginger Jeans kit and really want to make the high waisted version but have never sewn jeans before and am certainly intimidated, but this is a nice nudge toward confidence!

      Thanks! The Ginger Jeans do look great, I love the high waist version. Make a muslin and then dive in! It’s not as hard as it seems as long as you have good instructions :)

    Your jeans look awesome and I love the embroided pockets. So if I say I’m not a jeans person, it’s just because I haven’t made myself the perfect pair. Does that mean it’s a quest to embark upon?

      Thanks Helena! I think so!!! I do think it teaches you how to make great pants with the techniques you learn :)

  10. These are amazing! I love the top-stitching and the pockets! One of a kind.

    Rebecca, these jeans are fabulous! I’m absolutely blown away by your embroidery on the pockets. That must have taken forever! It’s such a special and unique detail and really adds to the character of the jeans – I love it. The rest of the jeans look great as well, and they really do fit perfectly. Congrats on an epic project! :)

    You are so right about making jeans being addicting. After I made the first pair I had to have a second so I’d have one to war and one to wash. Then I thought of things I could do better or different and now…I love the idea of the CC coin pocket! I will incorporate that into my 6th pair.

      They are addictive aren’t they! Wow to 5 pairs-that’s awesome! I can’t wait to start on another pair myself soon. The CC pocket is so useful, I think I’m going to add an interior key hook on a ribbon to my next pair. Customization is the best :)
