New Pattern: Meet the Jutland Pants!
I've been dropping many hints but haven't given you a specific date - well the day is here! We have a new pattern to show you! Meet the Jutland Pants. These pants are the alter-ego of our Jedediah Pants. They are relaxed, straight legged pants with curved front pockets and back darts. They include all sorts of beautiful, high end finishing techniques, just like the techniques you've learned when sewing the Jedediah Pants! These pants feature flat fell seams, french seamed front pockets, a bound waistband, and a practical front fly. They are designed to be extremely rugged pants that can be made to suit all sorts of demanding uses - be it climbing mountains or working on a construction site. This pattern includes two variations with all sorts of mix and matching possibilities. Variation 1 features single welt back pockets (complete with extremely thorough illustrated instructions and a photographed tutorial that is up on our website!). This variation would look great as every-day trousers. The welt pockets make them a touch dressy, while the curved front pockets are similar to those of familiar jeans. Variation 2 includes easy patch pockets, reinforced knees, reinforced hems, and slim cargo pockets. These design details, paired with purpose driven material choices (think heavy cotton canvas for construction pants or waterproof ripstop for hiking pants) could be used to create a wardrobe full of pants catered towards your lifestyle. Just pick the pocket and reinforcement elements that are suited to your needs to create all manner of pant styles! A separate PDF file includes lining pieces that can be used for either variation. Line these pants with cozy flannel or breathable mesh depending on your intended pants use. If you don't want to line your pants, don't print the Lining file and trees will be saved! We've also split the Variation design elements into separate files so you can print these pants using as little paper as possible (thanks for the great suggestion test sewers!). For those of you just about to head into summer, these pants are REALLY easy to make into shorts. Because they aren't very tapered, just slice the pattern at your desired hem length - wherever that may be along the straight leg (note that our instructions don't include this as a variation...but trust me, it's easy! Here are some Jutland Shorts that I made for Matt last summer: As with our recent Finlayson Sweater pattern, the Jutland Pants are available as a PDF pattern right now which includes a Print at Home file as well as a Print Shop file. We’ll be offering this as a tissue pattern in the future but plan to release several of our upcoming patterns as PDFs first before sending them to the printer all at once. If you plan to buy the tissue pattern in the future but can’t wait to get started on the Jutland Pants, no problem! When we release the tissue pattern in the future, you will have one week to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your PDF order number and will will give you a special discount code for the tissue pattern so that you will end up receiving the PDF for free!
