Kudos to my hubby, my personal photographer, for his great photographic skills!
Okay, so here's the thing, I know this pattern has been around for a while. And, I've had mine since 2015. I won it in a Pattern Review contest as a random winner. I won the PDF version.
Jeans Contest 2015: Official Discussion
February 15 to March 15, 2015
Read my pattern review here of Burda 8488
Looking back on this challenge, I realize the Ginger jeans is actually my FOURTH pair of jeans, WOW! My first pair was a faux leather jean pant I made as part of a suit using the popular Jalie jeans pattern. The jacket I made was inspired by a beautiful teal green leather jacket that Andrea Davis of Sew to Fit made in 2014. Andrea's jacket can be seen HERE.
I Love that these jeans have a button front fly opening. I made these out of a gold brushed denim that I purchased from JoAnn Fabrics. I actually participated in the Jess Jeans sew-along making these jeans.
Terrible picture, I know. I don't think I've ever taken
a picture of me wearing these jeans. SMH.
On to the third pair of jeans, which was actually the pair that I made for the Jeans contest in Pattern Review, the Burda 8488. Follow the link above to read my full review. I chose to use the sailor pant style, made out of a brushed denim twill fabric. This was not your traditional jeans, but that's me, non-traditional at times.
Check out that contrasting chevron panel. You can say, I was on a winning streak that year because I won that fabric from Mimi G. She was giving away a few extra gift bundles that were leftover from her conference that year. And, I was one of the recipients. This fabric was actually one of the half samples that was provided by one of her sponsors, along with two pair of very nice Fiskar scissors, thread, an a couple of patterns.
So,this brings us to the fourth pair, the Ginger jeans that I mentioned above. But, guess what, you are gonna have to come back for Part II, the full review of the making of these fabulous jeans. Until then, remember, you are blessed to be a blessing. Happy Sewing!!
Out with my family in the middle of a nature park, Phinizy Swamp.
Love you to life,
