Reminiscent of iconic classics, the halfmoon 101 JEANS are lower-rise, straight leg and designed for a non-stretch (selvedge) denim. Designed to be snug around the hips and upper thighs, the halfmoon 101’s will curve nicely around your waist and hug your hips before straightening out from just above the knee toward the ankle. There is an option for zipper or concealed button fly and the instructions will walk you through flat-felling the seams to create a simple look with a truly individual fit.
This pattern is drafted for approximately a 168cm (5’6”) female body, with a full hip ranging from 86cm to 170cm (33¾” to 67”). Step-by-step instructions are fully illustrated for sewing with a standard sewing machine and/or serger.
This is a computer drafted, print and cut, layered PDF pattern, printable in black/white or color. The print-at-home, A0 and copyshop files are included in your purchase. The pattern includes all sizes (these are split between two files for print-at-home), but the size views can be easily toggled on or off in order to print either all sizes or only the size(s) you want to make.
18 sizes, approx. US size 0 to 36W
halfmoon ATELIER patterns do not follow standard sizing charts, but newer patterns, including the 101 JEANS, range from a full hip of 86cm to 170cm (33.75" to 67"). They are numbered 1 to 18, but correspond approximately to US 0 to 36W.
Please note that the size chart here lists pattern-relevant measurements for every other size simply to keep the numbers visible. However, measurements for all sizes are included in the pattern instructions, and can also be viewed here.
Denim: Non-stretch medium to heavy-weight (9-10oz.) denim twill fabric. The straight side seam makes this pattern perfect for selvedge denim. Suggested fabric quantities are based non-directional, non-selvedge denim.
Lining: Light to mid-weight woven cotton, cotton lawn or linen for pocket
bags, fly shield and waistband lining.
