THE HEROINE JEANS • Pattern
By Merchant & Mills, The Heroine Jeans is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Heroine jeans are fitted to the waist with a straight, generous leg and a healthy turn up. This is a pattern that we would advise making a toile first, firstly to adjust the fit if needed but secondly to familiarise with the pattern instructions. We have not used a traditional run and fell jeans seam, we have chosen instead to topstitch the seam, which is easier to achieve on a domestic machine. We have found that a heavy duty thread rather than a topstitch thread gives a more authentic look to the topstitching and is easier to use. You may find that you get a better stitch using a matching standard ‘sew all’ thread in the bobbin.
Sizing: This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes UK 6 – 18. Sizing and finished garment measurements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: Non Stretch Denim 8-12.5 oz. (up to 14oz with a heavyduty sewing machine)
