The Clementine - Merchant & Mills
735862Regular price $19.95 Save $-19.95
Slim fitting jeans skirt with a back split and shaped waist band. This is a pattern that we would advise making a toile first, firstly to adjust the fit if needed but secondly to familiarise with the pattern instructions. We have not used a traditional run and fell jeans seam, we have chosen instead to topstitch the seam, which is easier to achieve on a domestic machine.
Skill level: Experienced
We have found that a heavy duty thread rather than a topstitch thread gives a more authentic look to the topstitching and is easier to use. You may find that you get a better stitch using a matching standard ‘sew all’ thread in the bobbin.
We recommend using 8-12.5oz denim (up to 14oz with a heavy duty sewing machine).
You will also need:
|Size 6||Size 8 – 12||Size 14 – 18|
|83cm wide, without nap||1.80M||2M||2.20M|
|120cm wide without nap||1.30M||1.35M||1.80M|
|140cm wide without nap||1.15M||1.20M||1.35M|
|150cm wide without nap||1M||1.10M||1.25M|
|Pocket fabric 110 to 150cm wide||0.30M||0.30M||0.30M|
A note about pre washing your denim:
We recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:
Nehalem Pant and Skirt, Sew House Seven
737057Regular price $18.95 Save $-18.95
The Nehalem is based on the traditional Thai fisherman’s pants worn by fishermen in Eastern Asia. The traditional pant is a one-size-fits-all, very baggy, loose-fitting pant that is wrapped and tied to fit. While still a loose-fitting wrap, the Nehalem has been slimmed down a bit and has been graded to better fit your size. The back rise of the pant is not as baggy as a traditional fisherman pant as it has a bit of a curve to its rise - for a more attractive and fitted back view.
The Nehalem skirt is a take on the fisherman pant as well. It also wraps and ties to make for an easy fitting, easy to wear piece. It features oversized side patch pockets, vertical front and back seaming and a wide waistband that can be folded down or worn upright and tied. The skirts feature an above the knee version and a tea length version. No closures to sew.
The Nehalem pants feature oversized side patch pockets, vertical back seaming and a wide waistband that can be worn upright or folded down and tied. The pants feature cropped and long versions. No closures to sew.
All versions have 2 options for the waistband construction. There is a double layered, more finished waistband construction (option #1) or a single layer, longer (option #2) that is less bulky.
Make any view up in a luxurious fabric and wear it with heels for a dressed up look, try lightweight denim for a new take on jeans or sew it in funky printed cotton and it just may become your favorite loungewear piece. The pants are less bulky and a bit more slimming if sewn in a fabric with some drape such as denim Tencel. The skirt, on the other hand, works great in a fabric with more body. However you make your Nehalem, the creative dressing options are endless with this pattern.
This is a beginner level pattern sizes XS - XXL
