Hey y’all! I’m Allie, the sewing blogger over at alliemjackson.com, and today, I’m partnering with Hart’s to show off my new jeans made with this gorgeous white designer denim–act fast because I believe there’s hardly any left!
After making my first pair of Gingers this winter, I knew I wanted to make a second pair in white. I’ve never owned a pair of white jeans before, but this year I’ve been seeing them all over my favorite style blogs, and I thought I’d take a chance and pick up some of this white denim from Hart’s… and some spot cleaner! Turns out, the fabric comes from the same mill as the expensive jeans those same style bloggers wear, but I only needed about 2 yards of denim, so they’re much more affordable than the ready to wear versions at Nordstrom, plus, mine are customized exactly to my taste!
I’m lucky and the Closet Case Pattern Ginger Jeans fit me pretty well with some minor alterations. I’m curvier than they are drafted for, so I grade from a 6 in the waist to a 10 in the hips. I also raised the waistline by 2 inches so they hit at my natural waist–I left the rise as drafted on my first pair and wanted them to be higher for a more vintage look.
