Two session course
In this class you will sew a pair of custom-fit jeans in a two day intensive class, with a focus on fit and professional looking construction. You will have a choice of using Closet Case Patterns' Ginger Jeans pattern or the Morgan Jeans pattern in the class. The class will be taught by Hannah and Rosie of The New Craft House.
This workshop is suitable for an intermediate or confident beginner sewist who is excited to make jeans, but needs a little encouraging hand holding and fitting advice. You should be comfortable using a sewing machine and sewing patterns.
You will make your very own pair of perfectly-fitting jeans! You will be supplied with:
- Jeans zippers
- Jeans rivets and buttons
- all of the tools needed to make and finish your jeans professionally
- light refreshments and drinks throughout both days
There will be an hour break for lunch. You can bring along food if you'd prefer, or there is a brilliant food market just outside the door with lots of options. We recommend a visit, it's one of London's best markets!
