Classic Cut High Waisted Jeans

A review of Megan Nielsen Dawn Jeans

Reviewed by Sew-What on 2nd June, 2021

If you’re looking for a classic high-waisted jeans pattern then this is it!

There are 4 different cuts available in this pattern so great value for money! I chose to make the straight-leg version in white denim as I was missing a pair of white jeans and thought they would go perfectly with all my summer tops and sandals. Just don’t wear these when eating Spag Bol!

Denim is Lady McElroy stretch white denim from Minerva, it’s the perfect weight and not see-through which is the biggest fear for white jeans!

The pattern is really easy to follow, very thorough! It even warns you to look out for changing threads between topstitching and regular. There are also different options for the fly closure, I chose zip because otherwise, I would probably wet myself trying to undo all those buttons!!

Fit is great although – note to self – check where the waist sits and measure the waist measurement here rather than just assuming my waist in the same place as the pattern thinks it is ha! My waist is quite high so once made up the waist was a little small so next time I either need to increase the rise or size up at the waist.
