The Heroine, a Merchant & Mills pattern

32.00

Merchant & Mills do denim - SO EXCITING!

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.

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

This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18. A 1.5cm seam allowance is included in the pattern unless otherwise stated. Skill level: Experienced but achievable if you take it step by step!

Fabric choice: Merchant & Mills recommend using 8 – 12.5oz non-stretch denim (up to 14oz with a heavy duty machine).

You will also need:

  • Matching thread

  • 17.5cm/7″ metal jeans zip

  • 1 x button approx 18mm

  • Jeans needle

  • Large eye sewing needle

  • Plain cotton fabric for pocket bags

  • Heavy duty contrast thread/top stitching thread

  • Matching standard contrast thread (to use in bobbin)
