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.The pattern is sewn with a 1.5cm seam allowance with a standard seam that is top stitched which is easier to achieve on a domestic machine. Standard sew all thread can be used through out, heavier thread or top stitch thread can be used to give an authentic jeans look but test out your machine to see which works best for you.
This is a multi-size paper pattern sizes 6 – 18.
Skill level: Experienced but achievable if you take it step by step!
Suitable Fabric: 8 – 12.5oz (up to 14oz with a heavy duty machine.)
