Eddystone Jeans Digital Sewing Pattern (PDF)

(12 customer reviews)


The Eddystone Jeans are high-rise jeans that get you covered, literally! They keep your backside modest as you are moving about, not to mention they are extremely comfortable! The Eddystone comes in two styles—the girlfriend fit and demi-boot fit. The girlfriend fit is fitted from the waist through the hip while the tapered legs give you the perfect amount of ease, balancing comfort and femininity. The demi-boot fit is similar to the girlfriend fit, except with a subtle flare starting at the knees.

Eddystone Jeans Features:

  • High rise
  • Ankle length
  • Options for girlfriend fit and demi boot fit
  • Classic five-pocket design
  • Pocket stay to keep pockets in place and trim the tummy
  • Designed for bottomweight fabric with a slight stretch
  • Layers feature (print only the sizes you need)

Skill Level: Intermediate+

Sizes: 00 – 20 (See “Size Chart” tab below for detailed measurements)

Choosing Your Size

  1. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. (see instructions for details)
  4. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the top (see instructions for details).
  5. These jeans are designed for fabric with a slight stretch. It is still possible to use a woven fabric without stretch; if that’s the case, go up one size at the waist and hip.

I highly recommend that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabric that has a similar stretch, weight and drape as your final garment fabric.


Primary Fabric Use bottom weight, woven fabric with a firm stretch and great recovery. 10% stretch is ideal. Go up one size at the waist and hip if using bottom weight fabric with no stretch. Twill, denim and corduroy are great choices.

Lining Use a stable, non stretch woven fabric for the lining. Quilting cotton is a great choice.

    This pattern is awesome. It’s now my go-to jeans pattern. Thanks Kennis 🙂

    A great alternative to the modern jean pattern

  3. Catherine (verified owner)

    Gorgeous jeans, it’s lovely to be able to alter for better fit unlike rtw jeans

    This is a good pattern. I love the shape of the tapered leg, and these fit great with just a few adjustments for my asymmetry and I added a tiny bit to the crotch length. The directions were excellent. I am going to make another pair right away.

    I liked the 1/2” seam allowances, and after making a muslin found the fit suited my shape

  6. Linda (verified owner)

    These were a pleasure to make- I did leave off the coin pocket and the belt loops. I will be making more of these.

  7. Irene (verified owner)

    Easy to follow instructions, lovely style

  8. Shirley (verified owner)

    These jeans are wonderful!!!!! I am not a jeans person because they never have fit properly. These are so easy to adapt to your figure that I am now converted.
    Whomever wrote the directions did a superior job. They are clear and easy to follow.
    I am 76 years old and have been sewing for nearly 60 of those years. However jeans always defeated me. With this pattern and some sewing experience anyone can make a comfortable pair. I do suggest making them up first in a fabric you’ve had for awhile that you aren’t sure you really like. You will like it after these jeans are finished and you will know where to make fitting changes for a fabric you love.

    Complicated instructions

  10. Ramona (verified owner)

    I love the style, sizing options and the fact that I can take it to my local copy shop to have the full-size pattern printed on one sheet.

  11. Liliane (verified owner)

    I had a little problem to find my size but, once done, it was easy to go on. It was my first jean with real fly. Instructions are so good that it was succesfull immediatly

  12. Addrea (verified owner)

    Very clear and easy to understand instructions. My first pair were successful after fitting a muslin and watching Karina’s review on Lifting Pins and Needles.
