Morgan Jeans Pattern
Inspired by old-school denim but with a fresh, modern cut, Morgan Jeans are a classic five-pocket jean designed for non-stretch denim.
Featuring a mid-rise, contoured waistband, tapered leg and button fly, Morgan fits snugly through the hip but relaxes and conforms to your curves with a little wear (size up for a slouchier, more casual fit). Choose between a regular or cropped inseam, and add an optional leather waistband patch.
Sizes: Currently available in sizes 0-20 only (print and PDF)

Pattern Hacks & Inspiration
From the Closet Core Patterns Community
The Morgan Jeans were the first jeans I've ever made. I adapted the pattern to fit size 12 waist and size 14 bum, and the fit was spot on. I made one pair in 10 oz cotton duck canvas, and another pair in 12 oz Japanese selvedge denim. Both are the best fitting, most comfortable jeans I've ever owned, and as a bonus are quite flattering. I used Closet Core's rivets/buttons kit which worked very well too. The instructions were easy to follow.
I'm really excited about my new pair of Morgan jeans. I've been sewing for years, and this is the first pants pattern I've made that looks like a store bought garment. I used the online class as a guide. The jeans turned out wonderfully!
There is quite a bit of room in the upper legs which is great for big booty girls like me. I really appreciated all the fitting guidance that's available on the website. I will definitely be making this pattern again.
This is a relatively advanced project, so if you're a new sewist, seriously consider the online class.
Merci très beau patron et facile à réaliser
Absolutely love my Morgan jeans. The instructions are on point as usual from Closet Core Patterns. I got the fit right on them first time. This is my go to jeans pattern!
