      Thank you, Skyler! I thought the exact same thing, but finding this denim for super cheap made me figure I should try. I still highly recommend Everlane jeans though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have fabric, notions and purchased a Megan Nielsen Jean pattern and the Ginger Jean course and still havenโ€™t made Jean ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

      It’s all about putting your mind to it and saying you’re going to do it! Having confidence in your ability and patience with yourself both play a big key in getting them finished! You can do it, Andrea, but don’t put it off forever!

    Wow, this was a fantastic post, full of good tips. I made Gingers a few months ago and even though I made them tight, I wish I had made them even tighter, because stretch denim continues to relax (I still wear them almost every other day). I’m betting yours will be perfect after a few more wears.

    Love that Roscoe blouse too! I didn’t know the trick about sizing down for cotton, sooo helpful.

      I’m so glad you found it helpful, Cindy! I am sure it has A LOT to do with the denim and stretch percentage, so you really have to figure out the fit on each pair. Mine have thankfully stretched out a good amount, but I’m hoping they do a little bit more.

      And thank you! The Roscoe is beautiful, but you do have to be aware of what different fabrics will drape like and size accordingly.

  3. Your jeans look terrific! It’s an amazing color too. You never know, you might find another denim that speaks to you and make another pair…

      That’s true! I’m not saying never, but I love my Everlane Jeans. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am in the process of making a pair of Chi-Town Chinos out of denim, so that’s pretty close!
