Sewing jeans

 This past weekend I started with a new pair of jeans. I’m using the Ginger pattern in the high waist version. I see that I’ve never blogged about it. My current black pair is about two years old, not so black any more and it definitely has seen better days. Time to replace it, as I love wearing it. 

A project to do in a few steps. Today I topstitched the back pockets and have sewn them on. 

Though to be completely honest, I have topstitched a pair earlier on, but decided I didn’t  want the colour after all.

The green was my first choice, but I will do it on another pair. I realised I want to sew a cardigan to go with this which has a lot of blue in the fabric which is not a great combination with this green.

One line for the topstitching was marked using carbon tracing paper. The other lines were sewn at equal distance from this first line.

For some reason the light is very different on this last photo. Finished apart from the rivets in the corners. I’ll put those on before sewing the yoke, which will be the next step.


  1. Prachtig Sigrid. Ik heb altijd problemen met het dikke garen. Wat gebruik jij? Verder zag ik onlangs in Donner een boek dat ' Sewing jeans' heette van Johanna Lundström vol prachtige foto's. Ik ben benieuwd naar jouw vervolg want het boek heb ik (nog) niet gekocht.

    1. Dank je! Ik gebruik Gütermann extra sterk draad (grijze klossen) als bovendraad, gewoon garen op de spoel.
      Ik ken dat boek niet en dacht dat het alleen als pdf verkrijgbaar was. Tipje van de sluier over mijn plannen: het ligt in mijn bedoeling om het komend jaar een aantal "tutorials" te schrijven, zowel in het Engels als in het Nederlands. Het maken van jeans (of de meer moeilijke onderdelen daarvan) staat op het lijstje. Planning nog geen idee, maar ik ben al wel bezig met meer foto's nemen van de constructie-fase.

    2. Bedankt Sigrid, naar je tutorials kijk ik uit.

    3. Such perfect stitching!

  2. I liked the green but the white will be more versatile.

  3. Prachtig!
    En je voornemen om tutorials te schrijven, helemaal top
