PROJECT

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. 

 

WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR? 

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.
