The Small Fry Skinny Jeans offer a classic skinny fit style with enough ease for comfort. A very versatile pattern that can be dressed up for a wedding or down for more casual wear. The detailed tutorial contains everything you need to learn to sew jeans with all the professional finishes.
The pattern includes the following options:
- "Classic" Inset pockets including coin pocket or Patch pockets
- Half fly or Full zip fly
- Full length or Shorts
- Two different waistbands
- Girls (reversed) fly instructions for both fly options
The jeans construction uses flat felled seams for some seams to give a hard wearing and professional finish.
The pattern comes in two sizes groupings. The small pattern pieces are different from the large ones to allow for nappies (either disposable or cloth).
This high quality pattern and tutorial contains all the standard Titchy Threads Pattern Features.
Images in the listing include some photographs taken by Lexi Made, Rebekah Sews, Probably Actually, Sew Jereli and Sultures and Sandpaper.
The instructions are detailed and excellent, and I found the photos to be immensely helpful. Though this was a major time commitment due to all the pieces and top stitching and whatnot, the elements came together easily.
...Next are the instructions, Laura will guide you step by step and will make you sew up your jeans like a pro. We are talking flat felled seams, coin pockets, zipper fly, half fly, adjustable waistband, belt loops, etc... You name it, she has thought of it and she makes it so simple and easy and guides you the whole way through.
And well shall we talk about the pattern itself? The fit is awesome. If you measure your kid correctly and adjust accordingly you will get the best fitting jeans ever. Your kids will love them, you will love them.
If you ARE a confident beginner, and you know how to follow a pattern well, you will definitely be able to sew these jeans. Laura’s instructions are magic, I tell you. MAGIC. Usually I get bored with projects that take me more than two days (I’m sorry, it’s true) but this one kept me excited and engaged the whole time because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next!
And it was SO MUCH FUN! I loved each and every step of the process of putting these pants together. I would've got them done a lot faster if I hadn't stepped back to admire my handiwork after each step.
Or so I thought.
But Titchy Threads has changed my mind about that! Laura wrote a fantastic new pattern called the Small Fry Skinny Jeans. There are tons of different options and they are easy to sew! If you want to do all the topstitching and flat felled seams they take some time to make, but the result is so worth it!
Although the pattern is challenging, Laura walks you through everything in a very accessible way. I learned lots of things, from how to flat fell seams (a first time for me) to using topstitching thread (also first time)
Flat felled seams, inset pockets (or front patch pockets), back yoke and pockets, belt loops… and the pattern includes detailed photos and instructions to walk you through every step.
My daughter is pretty tiny for her 3 year old self. Most skinny jeans I buy for her aren't very skinny at all. They sag in her bottom and are either huge in the waist or too short. Never just right. Until now.
These jeans have a hip skinny cut but are comfortable for my daughter to move around and even climb at playground in. Oh and did I mention they look adorable on her!
I love it when a pattern teaches me new things. This was my first doing flat felled seams and a half fly, the pattern walked me through all the steps and it was easy peasy.
For me this was the first time I sewed flat felled seams, I really like how neat the finish looks with these seams. The jeans fit little rascal perfectly, good length and not too big at the top as store bought jeans (even skinnies) often tend to be. He doesn't even need a belt in this pair!
I LOVE how professional the finished product is. I learned how to do flat-felled seams. OK, honestly I already *knew* how to do flat-felled seams, but I had never actually *sewn* them before. Another first for me: stitching with jeans top-stitching thread. Laura's instructions are flawless and made these two new concepts so easy for me. The best part about these jeans: they don't look handmade.
