Spring is coming, at least that is what the calendar says, the weather not so much. I am going to be ready with a new pair of white jeans, this time in Mood Fabrics’ Off-White Stretch Denim – 10 oz and this fabric worked perfectly for the Morgan Jeans from Closet Case Patterns. I have made the Ginger Jeans several times and wanted something a bit more relaxed, boyfriend fit.
This denim really looks white even though the description says off-white and the stretch is very slight, which is good for the pattern. The Morgan pattern states non-stretch denim.
I used some of my quilting cotton for the pocket bags and the waistband lining, Kona Snow to be exact. This slight beige color really was perfect so the pocket bags don’t show. Now the Morgans call for a button fly and I had no buttons, so I went with a zipper and used the Ginger Jeans instructions. Easy way to do it and I didn’t have to wait to shop for buttons.
These are a relaxed fit, boyfriend fit and you can tell this through the seat and hips. This photo is a bit blurry but the only one that shows the back.
I saw a pair of white jeans in the store, had a frayed hem and I was tempted to buy them. Wait, my Morgans can have this finish. I cut the jeans at the cropped length, so this is ankle when not rolled. I stitched a 3/4″ from the bottom so the fraying doesn’t go crazy. After stitching, I used my seam ripper to pull threads. My floor was a mess but the look is great
These Morgans do fit better the first time make than my Gingers did, I did head to the Closet Case site for fitting tips. I did move the pockets up so much, they were way too low.
Here is the cuffed look
I did add some rivets for these jeans
