My first pair of Gingers, in black. I made View B of the Ginger pattern (High rise skinny leg) and lowered the rise using the instructions on the Closet Case Patterns blog (I think you can buy a mid rise version on its own now). I also shortened the leg by 3 inches, and finally have a pair of jeans that are the perfect length for my 5ft frame!
