Jean style pattern

Jean | Posted in General Discussion on

Is there a good jean style pattern out there you can suggest?  There are so many nice jean fabrics I would like to make my own jeans.  Or can I adjust my regular pants pattern to make jeans?  Thank you.

        First we have two Sandys and now two Jeans......How confusing! Wouldn't it be nice if Prospero didn't let this happen? I think I'm going to have to add a distinctive signature too, like you, so I can be readily identified ;-)

        One of the Sandys....the first one.

          Adding a signature is very easy to do. Just a little farther down on the same page is the little box for it.

        Has anyone suggested the Vogue pattern Sandra Betzina uses in her Threads article?  The pattern number is

        Vogue 7608

    Burda patterns have about the best, most anatomically correct crotch curve in the business. I need very few adjustments with them. Neue Mode, another German company, is also said to be excellent. Both companies have run jeans patterns (in fact, I saw a classic old Burda jeans pattern on ebay just the other day), and my best advice would be to try them first.

    Not to beat the drum for another website, but at http://www.patternreview.com you can search for people's experiences with such patterns by going to the search box and typing in either pants or jeans. Most entries there have photos of the finished garment, often with front and rear view.

      Elona, normally I would be in complete agreement about the Burda patterns.  However, I've had experience with this pattern (the Palmer and Pletsch) and it is excellent!  I also recommended it because of the instructions; Palmer and Pletsch patterns generally have very clear directions.

        I certainly agree about the clarity of the P&P patterns, Shannon. They are complete little sewing lessons in an envelope, with consistently great instructions.

        I must have missed a letter,  to which Palmer and Pletsch pattern are you referring?


        1. ShannonG4d | | #12

          Message 3 link.....McCalls 9422.....is the pattern in question.
