Size Chart

Mountain View Pull-on Jeans PDF Sewing Pattern Body 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.
  2. Compare your hip circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your hip. 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 waist and hip. See “Blend Sizes” (see instructions for details)
  4. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the jeans (see instructions for details).

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


Primary Fabric Use a stretch denim, twill or corduroy fabric with 20% to 30% stretch. Do not use fabric with less stretch.

Lining Use a lightweight woven fabric with or without stretch. Lining fabric is for pockets.

Other Materials

  • Topstitching thread
  • 1/2" (1 cm) wide elastic as long as your waist
  • Four (4) rivets (optional)

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

    These are the best jeans by far. The waistband doesn’t flip over when you bend over or sit. You don’t have to hike up your pants after standing. They stay put. I’ve gotten so many compliments on my jeans already.
    I used the skinny jean directions and pinned out the excess on the bootleg. Custom-fit skinny jeans!
    I also ran out of fabric and did a moto hack with some topstitching. I love that you can use this pattern to make so many differently styled jeans. It’s quite a versatile pattern.
    As always, the drafting and instructions are top notch.
    Everything I make from Itch to Stitch is just so perfect for me. I love having my own custom wardrobe with clothes that actually fit my body. Thanks, Kennis!

    I’m pretty sure I’ve worn my jeans this week and I bought fabric to make more! Like stevenjswanson, I also did the lining backwards and everyone loves when I show them my cute “lemon” pockets. I did overlap the paper pattern for the back seam by an inch to get rid of the seam in the back as I don’t think I could have stood having a seam down the back of my leg. I was worried this trick may not work, but I figured worst thing I can do is mess up $10 worth of fabric. It turned out perfectly. On to making my next pair! This was my very first article of clothes I made alone. The directions are very well written. My jeans look completely store bought and are so super comfortable to wear. Thanks for such a great pattern! My only recommendation to someone that is a newbie to sewing garments like me, is to make sure you have the correct thread. My muslin looked awesome, but after a few hours of wearing them I was already busting seams open. Totally my fault as I didn’t pay attention to the thread I used but I remedied that problem with my second pair.

    Love these! No muffin top. No buttcrack. Holds everything in. Easy pattern to follow (although I did the lining of the pockets backwards and I like my lining showing, it’s cute). Ordered more fabric and am going to make more!

    I never knew I needed pull-on jeans, but now that I have these, i realize I did. They are really comfortable and stay in place, yet they look great like a proper pair of jeans. Now I need these in more colors….uhh, and also in stretch corduroy.

    So I keep going to pull my jeans back up into place… because I’ve had to do that for so many years, it’s an unconscious habit… and they are ALREADY in place. Jeans that stay in place sitting, standing, walking…. I LOVE them!!
