Birkin Flare Jeans
from Baste + Gather Follow

Inspired by the style of 1970s fashion icon Jane Birkin, the Birkin Flares feature a high waist, trim fit to the knees and a fashion-forward, flared leg. The Birkin Flares work wonders on all figures and make even the puniest of bottoms look fantastic (ask me how I know!).  Tall or short, thin or curvy, somewhere in the middle...I haven't seen anyone who doesn't look great in these jeans!

This pattern comes in waist sizes 24-35 and is suitable for the intermediate sewist. (Jeans are NOT hard to sew, and I'll help you through the tricky parts! Promise!)

    Pattern Sizing:This pattern comes in waist sizes 24-35

    Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

    Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes

    What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I Love this pattern!! The zipper install is the easiest install E-V-E-R

    Fabric Used:Floral Stretch Denim

    Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I had to use size 30 to make sure they fit in the hip area, so I did have to remove two inches of the waist tapering down into the hip area.

    Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely!!

    Conclusion: This is a awesome pattern for a great fitting pair of flare jeans. I have also used the Ginger Flare pattern by Closet Case and that is also a great pattern. The difference that I found between the two is the Birkins are a slimmer fit and a little longer. You will not go wrong with either pattern.
