FULFORD JEANS • Pattern
By THREAD THEORY, Fulford Jeans is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Fulford Jeans sewing pattern is a truly classic straight leg jean. This pair of jeans features a regular fit in the thigh and straight legs. They feature a conservatively high rise reminiscent of vintage work jeans that sits just below the waist. Sew these jeans in a rugged denim and expect to wear this hard wearing pair for years to come.
This jeans pattern features all of the traditional details required when sewing denim - add lots of strengthening topstitching, learn to sew flatfell inseams, construct a zipper fly, and apply rivets to high stress areas. As an added bonus, the waistband is drafted in two pieces with a center back seam hidden under the belt loop. This construction style allows for very easy fit modifications, even once the jeans are fully constructed. This is a perfect solution for the home sewist who might like to sew these as a surprise gift or for the wearer with a fluctuating waistline.
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including Canadian sizes 26-50. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: Denim fabric (9-16oz) or bottom weight fabrics such as twill, or our range of Weighty Cotton Blend, corduroy. Fabrics with no stretch or up to 2% elastane (spandex) are suitable. A higher elastane content will change the fit and it may be necessary to size down.
Pocket linings such as broadcloth, quilting cotton or other strong, tightly woven cottons or cotton blends. This is a great opportunity to use novelty printed cottons as it will only be visible from the inside of the jeans.
