We have spent months designing, testing, and polishing it… and it is now with great pleasure that we finally unveil the Safran jeans and pants pattern! Safran is the only pattern in this fall-winter 2016 release, as we wanted to put extra care into perfecting it, and we hope you will like the result 🙂
Safran is a high-waisted pair of skinny jeans or pants, with multiple details (belt loops, back patch pockets, front diagonal welt pockets). It comes it two lengths: classic jeans length, and cropped ankle length.
The Safran pants are designed to be stylish yet comfortable, so they require fabric with 20% to 30% stretch: make sure to check the stretch percentage of your fabric using this method before cutting into it 😉 . It can be made out of denim, light twill, cotton sateen, velvet, suede, pleather… for widely different garments! (we will tell you more about choosing fabric for Safran in an upcoming blog post)
What if you like Safran, but you are afraid to tackle pants fitting? Or maybe you aren’t sure of where to get the fabric and supplies? Fear not, will address all these questions and more during #SAFRANSEPTEMBER, a month dedicated to sewing Safran. Furthermore, we have already included in the instruction booklet some fitting advice for the most common issues that will allow you to get started right away!
Safran is already available in the online shop, stay tuned to discover beautiful pictures of finished pants tomorrow!
