Sizes: US 2 – 20 / UK 6 – 24 / EUR 34 – 52
The Heroine jeans are fitted to the waist with a straight, generous leg and a healthy turn up. Perfectly matched with a GYO top or Camber Tee.
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.
SEWING LEVEL: Experienced but achievable if you take it step by step!
