My first jeans

A review of Megan Nielsen Dawn Jeans

Reviewed by Cotton Reel Studio on 19th November, 2020

I finally made myself some jeans! I’ve been waiting for my RTW pairs to fall apart before I attempted this… and they did.

After much deliberation I chose to try the Dawn jeans pattern for my first pair.

I enjoyed making them and the instructions were clear. I liked that you were prompted to change your thread at various stages throughout the process.

I did use the sew along on the website alongside the instructions for the fly construction as it was more detailed with photographs.

I have to work on the fit a little bit, but I am super happy with them and they are getting a lot of wear.
