Customizable barrel leg jeans made to measure

Do you like barrel leg jeans? Here you have the opportunity to design your own individual pattern according to your measurements and ideas. You can choose between different fits, pocket variations, waist heights, lengths, etc. Barrel leg jeans get their name from their shape – and even if it doesn’t sound particularly charming, it describes the outer silhouette of the jeans very well.

The pattern pieces already contain all seam allowances. The finished seam lines are marked in the pattern pieces. This way you can easily see how wide the seam allowances and hem turn-ins are intended to be.

In the instructions supplied, you will find links to the corresponding sewing instructions for the individual steps. We make these available to you online in image/text and video form. If you like, you can take a look at the instructions here.

The instructions also contain layout plans for cutting and information on materials and consumption.

We usually need 0.5-10 hours to generate your individual pattern and send it to you by e-mail.

This contains the following files:

  1. A4 PDF pattern file
  2. A0 PDF pattern file (the pattern is in A0 format in width, but can be longer – depending on how much space is required for the pattern pieces).
  3. PDF instructions for the pattern

You will therefore receive the pattern in two formats and can decide for yourself whether you want to print out the A4 file at home, glue it together and get started straight away. If you don’t feel like gluing, you can give the A0 file to a copy store or online print shop and have a large pattern sheet made for you. Please note the additional printing and shipping costs of the  provider.

You can open the PDF files with the free Adobe Reader.

Configurator and variants

Configurator and variants

Make sure you select your variants in the configurator in order, i.e. from left to right or from top to bottom. The display may vary depending on the device. If you go back, check the settings you have already made again.
You will find a general explanation for each option. You can also choose from individual variants that contain individual descriptions, and finally you can enter your body measurements or select a clothing size. How to take your measurements is explained during the measurement process. But you can also take a look at our measuring instructions here . It is important that you take really careful measurements, because the right measurements are the basis for the right cut.

As the barrel leg jeans have a rather wide and loose fit overall, there is no option for stretchy fabrics in the configurator. If you still use an elastic material, you must ensure that the waistband does not stretch by fixing it with a suitable interfacing or cutting it lengthwise.

Overview of the different variants
You can also find the following descriptions directly in the configurator. You can get an overview here:
With barrel-leg jeans, you first choose the leg shape, i.e. how pronounced the barrel shape should be (light, medium or strong).
The next step is to decide on a leg design, the core element of the barrel-leg jeans, so to speak. Here you can choose a normal side seam, a normal side seam and darts at the hem, a side stripe or a side wedge insert.
We continue with knee darts – you can choose to do without them completely or select one or two.
The choice of waistband height is only a pre-selection for the made-to-measure patterns. You only determine the actual height of the waistband when you enter the measurements. For example, if you select the low waistband height here, but enter the measurement for the “side length to the top of the waistband” so high that it corresponds to a medium waistband height, you will get the medium waistband height.
There are two variants to choose from for the crotch depth. With the normal crotch depth, the crotch seam is close-fitting when the narrow fit is preselected, with the normal fit it is approx. 1 cm deeper in the crotch. If you like to wear your pants looser at the crotch, the “low” version is the right one for you. The cross seam on these has approx. 5 cm more distance from the crotch.
You can choose between the normal and 7/8 length versions. The 7/8 length version is ankle-length.
For the saddle shape, you can choose between the classic V-shape or the O-shape. The O-shape is lower towards the side seam. If you don’t want a saddle at all, you can also choose darts instead.
You can choose between a square or round patch pocket for the rear pockets. The pattern contains templates for optional decorative stitching.
You can choose between a waistband width of 40 mm or 60 mm. You can choose between a shaped or straight waistband. In contrast to the straight waistband, the shaped waistband runs at a slight angle to the center front. This makes it very comfortable. However, it is slightly longer at the seam and only reaches the desired circumference at the upper waistband edge. As the name suggests, the straight waistband is not shaped. The inseam and upper waistband edge are the same length.
When it comes to slits, you can opt for a zipper or a concealed slit with buttonholes and buttons.

After the payment process, your individual pattern will be sent to you by e-mail. We usually need 0.5-10 hours to generate your pattern.

We provide you with the pattern file in two formats. You can decide for yourself which one to use, as both contain the same pattern.

The A4 file consists of several pages that you can print out and stick together yourself. Here you will find detailed instructions on how best to proceed and what you should bear in mind: Instructions for pattern preparation

The A0 file (A0 in width, the length varies individually) is a page in large format, which you can pass on to an online print shop and have a large pattern sheet sent to you. Please note the additional printing and shipping costs of the respective provider. Perhaps you have a copy store near you that will print out the file for you.

Materials and tools


The materials you need depend on the selection you make when configuring your pattern. We are therefore unable to provide you with an exact list at this point. You will find the exact list of materials required, the quantity, the amount of fabric and, if necessary, the zipper length in the instructions that you receive together with the pattern. Here is a rough overview:

  • Outer fabric: denim/jeans fabric (generally made of cotton or hemp) without elastane, otherwise the waistband must be reinforced
  • Pocket lining, e.g. thin, firm cotton fabric
  • Interfacing, e.g. Vlieseline G 405
  • Edgetape, e.g. Vlieseline T 12
  • 1 zipper or 3 buttons for the slit, depending on the version
  • depending on configuration, 1 – 2 buttons for the waistband, approx. 15 mm diameter
  • Thread matching your materials

Here you will find a list of the tools required:

  • Sewing machine
  • Overlock, if available
  • Iron
  • Pins and/or clips
  • Sewing needle for sewing on buttons
  • Scissors
