I am Sunshine, I am either a tapered leg cut or slouchy pair of jeans. I have all the details of classic jeans: Italian pockets, coin pocket, back patch pockets, rivets, a fly front, a waistband with belt loops and contrast topstitching.
I AM Patterns are designed to be traced off. The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. This means that you will be able to make multiple sizes of the garment and adjust the pattern as you trace it if necessary. For this you could use tracing paper, baking parchment, thin wrapping paper; or we can supply you with some spot and cross pattern paper.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
Garment: medium to heavyweight non-stretch woven fabric such as denim, twill, corduroy, cotton velvet, linen, sergé (chino), gabardine.
Pocket lining: poplin, lawn, batiste
