Buy the Helene Selvedge Jeans sewing pattern from Anna Allen. The Helene Selvedge Jeans are traditional high waist non-stretch jeans. This pattern is based on heritage denim jeans from the 1930s-1960s. It has traditional five pocket styling including two front scoop pockets, a coin pocket inside the right front pocket, and two pointed patch pockets on the back. Helene also features slight hip shaping while keeping the side selvedge seams unaltered from hip to hem. It has a V-shaped back yoke and a traditional straight waistband with belt loops. The instructions detail how to install a concealed button fly and a zipper fly. Four leg style options are included: View A – Straight, View B – Slim Straight, View C – Wide, and View D – Shorts.
