Fabric - The jeans are designed for a stretch denim with a minimum stretch of 20% for the skinny jeans and 50% for jeggings.

  • Great options are stretch denim, ponte, scuba, bengaline, or even an old pair of stretch jeans upcycled.
  • Stretch direction - For some stretch woven fabrics, the stretch runs down the selvedge, rather than across.  If you find your stretch is running down the selvedge, you will need to turn your pattern to accommodate for this change. Check you are cutting your pattern pieces with the stretch going from hip to hip, and not waist to ankle.
  • Stretch denim fabric is notorious for shrinking. Darker colors will also stain your fingers and sewing machines as the dye warms up while being handled. Please pre-wash your fabric first (on its own) and dry before using. It can also mark easily in the wash so do not leave it sitting in your washing machine or dryer after washing, hang or fold as soon as you are able.

Lining Fabric – You will need a lining fabric for the Pocket Bags. Your lining fabric can be any medium weight fabric that has the same amount of stretch as your main fabric.

* If you are using a narrower fabric, a directional print, or a fabric with nap you may need more.

** Make sure to wash, dry, and press all fabrics before cutting out in case they shrink.

You will also need:


  • 1x Fastening - approximately ⅝ - 1 inch wide. You could use a traditional jeans style button, a regular button, or a snap. If using snaps, go for metal or heavy-duty snaps.
  • OPTIONAL ⅜ inch wide Jeans rivets – 8x for the corners of each of the front and back pockets.       Maximum size of ½ inch.
  • OPTIONAL ½ inch wide Single fold bias tape – This can be used to finish the fly area (half a yard will be sufficient for all sizes).
  • 1x zipper – you can use any zipper but a ‘chunky’ or ‘jeans’ zip will be more authentically jeans-like. We recommend the faux fly for sizes 12 – 24 mos, or alternatively you can use a 3 inch zipper. Use 3 inch zipper for sizes 2-4 yrs and a 4 inch zipper for sizes 5-12 yrs.
  • OPTIONAL 1 inch wide plain/buttonhole elasticApproximately ½ yard will be sufficient for all sizes.
  • Thread to match. You may want to also use specialty top stitching thread. This is usually a heavier weight, and you may need more than you are used to as there is generally less on a spool. You will need 2-3 spools.


Jeggings OPTION:

  • ¾ inch wide elastic – 0.75 yards will be sufficient


  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure
  • Buttonhole presser foot
  • Pins or clips
  • OPTIONAL - Zipper foot for the zipper fly option.
  • OPTIONAL - A hammer or mallet for attaching buttons.
