Closet Case Ginger Jean...Again???

For all of you who sew, isn’t there that one pattern you just absolutely love and for the moment, can’t stop making it? This post is about that pattern for me! It’s called the “Closet Case Ginger Jeans”. 
For those of you following my blog for some time you’ve probably seen this pattern various times on different posts. I love this pattern so much because it is a great fit for me! While it’s not the quickest pattern to sew, for me it is one of the best fitting!  

WOW! I can’t believe I’m saying this but...this post will be about my “fifth“ pair!  Let’s start by talking about this beautiful fabric. I purchased it at Joann Fabrics and it’s a black stretch denim that has a beautiful flocked black velvet print. (Almost like it’s embossed)
When I first laid eyes on this fabric I knew it was bound for my beloved TNT jeans pattern! (And pair number five was born!). If you sew and have not tried this pattern yet, please do!  It really is a great pattern with very detailed and illustrated instructions.

There are so many reviews on this pattern out there (Including my previous ones), so I won’t go into detail again I’ll just leave you with parting pictures of me wearing them! 

Oh no! Broken topstitching? Check out my YouTube channel to see why.

I’ve read a lot of post where others have TNT’s that repeatedly go back to...If you have a story about a TNT love, please share a little with me in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you and thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Sewing!
