Quadra Jeans
Thread Theory Designs

$20.00 each

The Quadra Jeans sewing pattern by Thread Theory Designs provides a subtly modern take on the classic straight leg jean.  This pair of jeans features a slight taper to the leg and extra room in the thigh to allow for lots of movement.  They sit below the waist as a moderate low rise.  Sew these jeans in denim with no stretch or up to 2% elastane to add just that little bit of additional flexibility that so perfectly suits an active lifestyle.

This jeans pattern features all of the traditional details required when sewing denim – add lots of strengthening topstitching, learn to sew flatfell inseams, construct a zipper fly, and apply rivets to high stress areas.  As an added bonus, the waistband is drafted in two pieces with a center back seam hidden under the belt loop.  This construction style allows for very easy fit modifications, even once the jeans are fully constructed.  This is a perfect solution for the home sewist who might like to sew these as a surprise gift or for the wearer with a fluctuating waistline.

The Quadra Jeans pattern is part of the “Parkland Casual Collection” by Thread Theory Designs.  It is a classic garment that lends itself to creating the perfect casual, hand-made wardrobe for an active lifestyle.

The pattern envelope contains a tissue copy of the pattern in waist sizes 26 to 50, a 21 page staple bound illustrated instruction booklet that lays flat while sewing, an embroidered Thread Theory garment tag, and a chip board pattern folder with string closure, which is simple to use and sturdy enough to store your patterns for years to come.

Thread Theory Designs is a Canadian pattern company, and was launched in 2012 by Morgan and Matt Meredith with the aim to bring menswear to the forefront of the DIY fashion movement.
