Buy the Men’s Fulford Jeans sewing pattern from Thread Theory. The Fulford Jeans sewing pattern is a truly classic straight leg jean with a regular fit in the thigh. They feature a conservatively high rise reminiscent of vintage work jeans that sit just below the waist. Sew these jeans in a rugged denim and expect to wear this hard-wearing pair for years to come.

This pattern features all of the traditional details required when sewing denim – add lots of strengthening topstitching, learn to sew flat fell inseams, construct a zipper fly, and apply rivets to high stress areas. As an added bonus, the waistband is drafted in two pieces with a centre back seam hidden under the belt loop. This construction style allows for very easy fit modifications, even once the jeans are fully constructed. This is a perfect solution for the home sewist who might like to sew these as a surprise gift or for the wearer with a fluctuating waistline.

Suggested fabrics:

Self fabric: Denim fabric (9 – 16 oz.) or bottom-weight fabrics such as twill or corduroy. Fabrics with no stretch or up to 2% elastane (spandex) are suitable. A higher elastane content will change the fit and it may be necessary to size down. Ensure your sewing machine can handle the denim weight you choose by sewing through five layers of the fabric.

Pocket lining: Pocketing, broadcloth or other strong cottons or cotton blends. This is a great opportunity to use novelty printed cottons as it will only be visible from the inside of the jeans!
