Ultimate Jeans PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


The only jeans sewing pattern you’ll ever need, with the Ultimate Jeans we bring you a true classic in three different styles!

Make your perfect pair by choosing between a cropped ‘mum jeans’ version, a timeless straight leg or a slightly flared leg for a vintage touch.

Including all the markers of the classic blue jeans from the topstitching to the hardware and the coin pocket, we designed the Ultimate Jeans with flattering proportions to suit everyone!

Our clearly illustrated instructions will guide you through each step to achieve the sewer’s milestone of making your own jeans. With this pattern you’ll learn some classic techniques for trouser-making and working with denim fabric.

We recommend doing a toile so you can get the fit just right before you get stuck in with the construction and create your Ultimate Jeans.

Have a look at our Ultimate Jeans Pinterest Board and see what everyone’s making on Instagram with the hashtag #soiultimatejeans.

Fabric Suggestions
Medium weight woven fabrics such as non-stretch denim, corduroy and twill. You can use stretch denim but it will require more fitting/you may need to go down a size. 

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Ultimate Jeans pattern is sized between UK sizes 6-30 and is split into two different blocks, sizes 6-20 and sizes 18-30. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.

Size Chart 6-20

Size Chart 18-30

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format) in all sizes
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
  • copyshop permission letter

The Ultimate Jeans pattern is either 33 A4/US letter pages or 4 A0 copyshop pages (sizes 6-20), or 43 A4/US letter pages, or 4 A0 copyshop pages (size 18-30).

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
