Mid-Rise Ginger Jeans Pattern
Our best-selling Ginger Jeans are now available in a mid-rise cut! These jeans are the daily staple you’ll reach for again and again.
This PDF-only jeans pattern includes a skinny and stovepipe leg option, both options featuring a pocket stay. Hitting just below the belly button (about halfway between the low and high rise of the original Ginger Jeans), the Mid-Rise Ginger Jeans feature subtly shaped back pockets to highlight the curve of the bum and a higher back rise to prevent peekabooty.

How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.
Shipping + Returns
American customers: Packages in the US are shipped via USPS First Class and Priority Mail twice a week. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive.
Canadian customers: Your orders are sent via Canada Post letter or parcel post. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive, and wait up to 3 weeks before contacting us.
International customers: Estimated delivery dates are listed below the shipping price when you checkout. We have two possible services. International First Class is for packages under 2 kilos and takes approx 10-40 days to arrive depending on your location.

Most shipping services we offer come with a tracking number. This will be sent to you via email you once the order has been processed in our warehouse.
Given the huge volume of mail and the challenges that the pandemic, holiday season, and environmental conditions impose on the performance of the mail service, we ask you to please be patient with the delivery of your packages, and get in touch after 3 weeks for Canadian and US shipments, and 6 weeks for international shipments.
If the above mentioned waiting times have elapsed, please message us about your delay. We’ll be happy to work with you to figure out a solution.

After a couple of toiles, I think I've got my fit pretty well - only very minor adjustments. A corduroy pair and a denim pair now grace my wardrobe. These are the most comfortable jeans I've ever owned and I can see a lot more in my future! And I love the way the instructions and the sewalong on the site complement each other.
I have made numerous pairs of Ginger jeans. With a few changes, they fit me perfectly. Excellent instructions. Just when I wanted to try non-skinny jeans, there was a new stove pipe leg version. This version is cut out and waiting to be sewn.
These jeans fit so nicely and the pattern is well laid out and easy to understand. These were not my first jeans, and I made some small changes to the pattern in order to make sure that they fit me, the biggest of which being the blending of sizes 28 and 30. These are my favorite make so far and I will definitely make more of these later!
I’m am absolutely in love with this pattern.
I have been on a mission to make my own jeans for about a year now, this is the pattern that has best worked for me.
I’m not an expert by any means just a mom/grandma that likes to sew and got back into a few years ago. I have never made jeans before and the first few were a struggle to say the least.
But with this pattern and Heathers teachings I think I finally can do it.
Thank you Closet core for all your help!
The Ginger Jeans pattern fit as described. Worked well for my design plans. Instructions were clear. Was overall happy with the pattern.
Largest complaint (if that) rather expensive to print the entire pattern. Would be nice if the pieces had a bit tighter fit on the master.
However, I will definitely buy from Core again because of the fit.
First time making jeans and I love them. They look professional and fit perfectly. I made them in a class so it was far less intimidating. Starting 2nd pair on my own!
