What you will do
Three session workshop
A perfect pair of jeans makes every wardrobe complete, but finding the right pair can sometimes seem like hunting a unicorn! Forego the quest this year by learning how to make your own, with Great British Sewing Bee 2016 winner Charlotte Newland. This West Hampstead class is suitable for intermediate dressmakers with some garment sewing experience.
In this class
The idea of sewing jeans might be daunting, but sewing pro Charlotte will guide you through every step of the way, covering skills like: trouser-fitting, inserting a zip fly, top-stitching and inserting jeans hardware.
You'll get to choose your size (from American size 0 -20), and design: low-rise with narrow stovepipe legs, or high-waisted with skinny legs.
Now you can
- master the art of making your very own jeans
- learn new sewing tips and tricks for your future garment making projects
- never have to agonise in store changing rooms over ill-fitting jeans again
