Birkin Flares Sewing Pattern



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!)

READ BEFORE PURCHASING! After paying for your pattern, you will be directed to a page where you can download the files in a zipped folder. You will also be emailed a link for download. Once you have accessed the link, you will only have 24 HOURS to access it again. I am getting multiple emails a day from customers asking me to re-send the files, and as much as I wish I had a dedicated customer service team, I do not. I have three small children at home and cannot always respond to emails promptly. Please, PLEASE save your files immediately after purchase. Please also note that there are three files which are delivered in a zip file. I recommend you access these on a computer and not a mobile device.
