Indie4Less: Ginger Jeans by Closet Case Files and Jess Jeans by Iconic Patterns

Now that “Pocket-Gate” and “Crotch-Gate” have settled down on the forums, let’s look at more pics of hips and bums! Just kidding – line drawings only here, folks.

Finding an exact alternative to Closet Case Files’ Ginger Jeans pattern was challenging because of its special 1″ of negative hip ease and 2+% stretch denim requirement, but we got your backs here.

Similarly but currently making less of a splash in the SBC, the Jess Jeans by Iconic Patterns has 13/16″ of negative ease built into the hips (yes, you read that correctly – sixteenths of an inch).

First up is Burda’s Floral Skinny Jeans from the March 2014 issue, sized for stretch twill or denim fabrics. (Spoiler alert: the line drawings look the same as the Ginger’s.) Insert obligatory “no seam allowances here” warning.

While not from a Big 4 company, the veteran stretch jeans pattern, Jalie 2908, has a flared leg rather than a skinny leg and is sized for 4% stretch denim. Similar to the Gingers, the Jalie pattern has two different rise options.
