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!
