My Sewing Projects
A collection of my sewing makes.
So, what is left to be said about Ginger jeans? This pattern has been out for a few years now, and there are almost 14,000 #gingerjeans tags on Instagram. Like, what am I going to say? […]
Here they are: my first pair of jeans! They’re the Mia jeans from our British friends at Sew Over It. I’m DELIGHTED with how they turned out, my sewing homies. […]
