The Halfmoon 101 Jeans sewing pattern is inspired by timeless and iconic denim classics. These jeans are designed with a lower-rise waist and straight legs, perfect for a non-stretch denim fabric. The pattern features a snug fit around the hips and upper thighs, curving nicely around your waist and hips before straightening out from just above the knee toward the ankle.
The pattern offers two options for the fly closure - a zipper or a concealed button fly, giving you the freedom to choose your preferred method of closure. The detailed instructions that come with the pattern will walk you through the steps of flat-felling the seams, which create a simple look and a truly individual fit.
The Halfmoon 101 Jeans pattern is suitable for the intermediate sewist, and includes various sizes, making it easy to achieve the perfect fit. Additionally, the pattern provides detailed instructions for adjusting the fit and length of the jeans to match your preferences.
The Halfmoon 101 Jeans are a classic and versatile addition to any wardrobe. You can dress them up or down, and they pair well with a variety of tops and accessories. Sewing your own jeans is not only rewarding, but also allows you to create a personalized garment that is unique to you.
