Megan Nielsen Dawn Jeans + D & H Fabric Co
Hello! I’m Sara, a sewing blogger over at The Sara Project! I’m super excited to be part of D & H Fabric Co’s first ever blog tour! I was lucky enough to be asked by Megan Nielsen to review her new pattern collection, and the non-stretch chino twill in pumpkin was a perfect match for Megan’s new Dawn Jeans pattern. I’ve paired her other new pattern, the Jarrah Sweater, with my pants.
The chino twill fabric is awesome! It has really great structure, and was really satisfying to work with throughout the course of making my Dawn Jeans. I love the pumpkin color too, it’s so fun for fall. This fabric also washes up really nicely and the weight works really well with the Dawn Jean pattern. It also comes in three other great color ways, including this red brick option!
As far as the Dawn Jeans pattern goes, I sewed up a size 2 and took in the side seams about another ¼”. The fit is fantastic! I love the wide leg, and super high waist. This look is so my vibe right now! Next time around (and yes, there will be a next time!!) I will opt for the zip fly and shorten the back yoke by ¼-½”. Other than that, these pants are perfect!! I can’t wait to try the straight leg option as well.
I’ve been wearing these pants a lot lately and this chino twill really holds up well. The pants haven’t stretched out and hold their structure. This fabric is so good! Check out Meg’s post for some more pumpkin chino twill goodness!
