    Merchant & Mills' "The Heroine" Pattern

    The Heroine jeans are fitted to the waist with a straight, generous leg and a healthy turn up. 

    This is a pattern that M&M would advise making a toile first, firstly to adjust the fit if needed but secondly to familiarise with the pattern instructions. They have not used a traditional run and fell jeans seam.  M&M has chosen instead to topstitch the seam, which is easier to achieve on a domestic machine. They 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.

    Skill level: Experienced but achievable if you take it step by step!

    Size: This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including UK sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm, unless otherwise stated.

    Suggested Fabrics:  8 – 12.5oz non stretch denim (up to 14oz with a heavy duty machine).
