    You did not adjust sizing in anyway to accommodate for the extreme stretch in this fabric?

    • LLADYBIRD February 16, 2018 at 1:28 pm #

      No, this denim has the same amount of stretch as is required for the pattern, so there’s no need to adjust the size.

    Shitty little thread nest…love it! πŸ™‚ By the “West Coast”, I sure do hope you mean Vancouver, B.C.!! #fingerscrossed

    • LLADYBIRD February 16, 2018 at 1:27 pm #

      Ha! It’s not a handmade project if there isn’t a rogue thread nest in there somewhere πŸ˜‰

    Love these. Jeans are beyond useful!
    How are you currently setting your rivets? My gold star press HATES rivets, enough though I have the rivet pieces 😦

    • LLADYBIRD February 16, 2018 at 1:42 pm #

      I just use a hammer! I really don’t care for rivets enough to justify buying any special tools for setting them haha

    The affiliate link isn’t working for me 😦

    • LLADYBIRD February 16, 2018 at 2:02 pm #

      Oh weird! I just tried it and it worked fine… maybe try a different browser? I’m on Chrome.

    Closet Case has all their jeans patterns 30% off this month (Feb 18) for Denim Month. I snagged a Ginger pattern right away! Mid-rise for this old lady. ha ha Please, please schedule a workshop over a weekend in Nov in Nashville and I’ll be there for my birthday. A party and sewing – I can think of no better birthday! πŸ™‚ I’ve got oodles of miles on SW Airlines just begging for a trip.

    • LLADYBIRD February 16, 2018 at 2:22 pm #

      Oh, I forgot everything was discounted there this month! Perfect timing πŸ™‚ I’m sorry, though – there won’t be anymore workshops in Nashville for 2018. I’m probably going to use my November this year to take a real vacation! πŸ™‚

  6. Faye Lewis February 16, 2018 at 5:37 pm #

    Picture perfect and great fit!

    I wish I lived remotely close enough to attend a workshop – it would be fantastic! Your hems look great – I have the worst time hemming on stretch denim, what is your secret?

    • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:35 pm #

      No secret, just press and stitch haha

    If I were in any of those places that you’re teaching Lauren I would be there with bells on my toes (well that might be a little extreme πŸ™‚ ) but I would BE THERE! I’ve had this pattern, Heather Lou’s ebook AND her online course but have yet to make up the pattern. I’m committed to doing it once and for all this year though since I’ve joined the #2018 RTW Fast challenge πŸ™‚ Love your jeans. It reminds me of the old days when you really did have to wash your new jeans 3 times before they became wearable but once you’d washed them about 20 times they were just the bees knees πŸ™‚

    • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:35 pm #

      Well, maybe someday I’ll make it to your neck of the woods! I do expect bells on your toes, though πŸ˜‰

    Another great pair! I’m excited to hear west coast is a possibility. I’m really hoping for a Portland workshop. 🀞(And since hopes and prayers might not be effective on there own, I also have emailed my request to local shops.)

    • Liz February 18, 2018 at 11:36 pm #

      Me toooooo! And NOW I know why that pair of jeans keeps dying my legs faintly blue despite multiple washings! I thought it was just that they were shitty TJ Maxx jeans, but I bet they were indigo dyed…luckily they aren’t dying my laundry.

      • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:37 pm #

        Haha yeah, it’s definitely the indigo dye! Even my $$$ jeans do that so it’s a pretty common thing! The downside is that sometimes it can be a year or two before they stop transferring dye… ugh, talk about a lesson in patience haha

    • catherine February 19, 2018 at 9:22 am #

      I would journey to Portland!!! Or San Francisco!!!!! Or Santa Cruz!!!!

    • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:36 pm #

      Emailing requests seems to be the key haha! Fingers crossed we can work something out!

  10. KS Sews February 17, 2018 at 6:40 pm #

    I don’t like wearing jeans nearly as much as I like sewing them. Looks great!

    • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:37 pm #

      I’m lucky that I like both! But sewing them is definitely my favorite part πŸ˜€

  11. Nokes February 18, 2018 at 6:15 am #

    Can’t wait to make jeans with you!! Counting down the days…

    • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:37 pm #

      Me too!!!! We are gonna have so much fun!!!

  12. catherine February 19, 2018 at 9:20 am #

    “Patience is a virtue, posses it if you can, seldom found in women, rarely in a man.” I will be patient and wait for WEST COAST!!! I may even have a friend or two that would join me. Maybe I’ll be done dealing with my parents house by then? Regardless, I…. am being patient for class, closer to me. PS VANS!! the only shoes I wore in the the 70’s and 80’s…. Making a comeback!!! And Lauren, don’t forget, you come to San Diego, you and your bro or friend get three days at the Dome!! Or it can be just you πŸ™‚ Only requirement is you sign the guest book. πŸ™‚ Have a beautiful day.

    • LLADYBIRD February 19, 2018 at 12:39 pm #

      I SO want to come to San Diego! I keep telling my brother and we are so stoked for the dome haha! But first I have to figure out my travel schedule because I maaaaay have booked up it too full for a vacation now :X haha But even if I can’t dome, I am going to try to come out to the west coast somehow and perhaps I can see you anyway!!

      • catherine February 23, 2018 at 8:57 am #

        Well I’m here for the long haul, so come on out! PS, I hear Shaun White is going to try to go to the Summer Olympics with skateboarding, yes, that beautiful Ginger Athlete Funny Person, lives in my town. πŸ™‚

    Your jeans look awesome! I love reading your reviews. I’m actually a Jeanswear pattern maker for Wrangler (VF really, but no one ever recognizes VF, so it is easier to say Wrangler or Lee). This is kind of a nit picky thing, but I thought you might like to know since you seem to make this pattern a lot, in production pattern making if we are doing a seam like this one on the back rise, we will center the pockets over the top stitching, not over the seam. It makes things look more balanced.

  14. Veronica Reed February 25, 2018 at 1:17 pm #

    I totally visit your blog for your amazing photography skills! πŸ˜€

    Fine. I’m here for the sewing!

    Jeans are one of the few things I haven’t tried to sew yet. One day, perhaps.

    Fingers crossed that by West Coast you mean SoCal πŸ™‚
