Jeans to die for with Charlotte Newland
Have you ever dreamed of sewing yourself a pair of great-fitting jeans? The perfect pair that fits you just the way you want them too every time you make them. Well here is your chance.
The idea of sewing jeans can be intimidating for even the most experienced dressmakers, but in this class our talented teacher (Charlotte Newland of Sewing Bee fame) will guide you through every step, from trouser-fitting to inserting a zip-fly to top-stitching to installing jeans hardware.
The Ginger Jeans pattern from Closet Case Files is a classic 5-pocket jeans sewing pattern with a modern and flattering cut designed for stretch denim. You can choose from a comfortable low rise fit with narrow stovepipe legs or a sexy and high-waisted pair with skinny legs and a tummy-slimming pocket stay.
On day 1 you will make a toile of your pattern, adjusting the pattern to fit you perfectly before moving onto creating your final pair during the 2nd and 3rd days. (class finishing times may vary from day to day depending on progress of class)
Please note this pattern is designed for American sizes 0-20. Please see the size chart for measurements. If you fall outside the size range, this class may not be suitable for you. (You can view the pattern and the size chart for this product here)
