Pattern: Dawn Jeans from Megan Nielsen

Skill Level: Intermediate

What you should know (or desire to learn): Topstitching, inserting a button fly, attaching patch pockets, flat-felling seams (if using), and attaching a waistband

Fabric Options: 

  • Light Indigo Denim - This denim is distinctive on how blue it is, lighter and more saturated than a lot of denims you'll find. Next, you'll notice that the twill weave is deeper and more distinct than a regular twill. That's because it's what is called a 3x1 twill, which means that there are three warp threads for every weft thread. This makes the denim a bit heavier weight and sturdier. This fabric also has just a little bit of spandex in it. It doesn't add any significant stretch (maybe 5% at most), but it will add an element of comfort when you wear your me-made jeans
  • Burgundy Cotton Duck -Up until starting this company, I have to admit, I only vaguely knew what duck cloth was. So don't feel bad if you've never heard of it before. Duck is actually a type of canvas that features a high thread count and smoother hand, making it great for some garment sewing. The duck we've chosen for these jeans is a beautiful, burgundy red. The elegant colors contrasts perfectly with the simple weave of the cloth and makes for one heck of pair of pants

Also in this box: Matching thread, contrasting topstitch thread (topaz for blue denim, dark red for burgundy duck), rivets, buttons (with an extra one to let you practice), jeans needle, topstitching needle, fusible interfacing and cotton lawn pocketing.
