Ginger Jeans // Construction Details & Pretty Guts


one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

One of my favourite things to do when I’m lying in bed and trying to make the transition from dead-eyed sleep zombie to sentient human being is to scroll through CCF hashtags and see what you guys are making. Since #gingerjeans has now been used over 1800 times on Instagram (so, so crazy) I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the beautiful detail and in-progress shots (aka Pretty Guts) you guys have shared over the last few months for your Ginger Jeans.  Whether it’s embroidered pockets, hand-sewn buttonholes, striking topstitching, inspired fabric choices or simply meticulous construction, it’s mindblowing how many ways you have made this pattern your own. Your collective creativity is awe-inspiring!

Here are some of our favourite Ginger Jeans details from Instagram….

Y’all make me want to go make a billion more pairs of jeans, I tell you. If you’re looking for more inspiration, I’m always adding fun details to this denim Pinterest board, and I’m also cooking up a fun free downloadable in the next few weeks to help you personalize your jeans even more…

What’s your favourite way to make your handmade jeans “you”?
