I’m very particular about my denims, and trying out RTW jeans is a very defeating experience for me (too tight around the tummy and thighs, saggy in the bum and always way too long). So apart from a pair of Lee jeans that I bought in a charity shop, I’ve only been wearing me-made jeans the last seven–eight years. My favorite pattern is Anita from Burdastyle (but go down one size for a skinny fit and the legs are long!) and I’ve tweaked the fit a little bit, so that they are exactly how I want my jeans (straight legs and fitted).
The fabric is from the designer jeans company G-Star Raw, I bought in Denmark because finding good denim in Sweden is pretty much impossible. Even though we have big two jeans companies here, Nudie and Cheap Monday. But apparently Swedish design companies don’t resell fabric that has been left over from production. Instead it stays in China or wherever else the jeans are made.
A previous pair of the Anita Jeans, also made with denim from G-star.
That said, I did recently bought the Ginger Jeans from Closes Case Patterns, because I was curious about this wildly popular pattern, so maybe some day I will try that pattern too! Have you tried the Ginger and what did you think ?
