Ginger Jeans Learn to Sew Your Own Jeans Weekend Workshop

Do your jeans gap in the back?

Do your jeans ride down in the back and ride up in the front?

Is the waistband of your jeans often to lose and bags in the rear?

Or do you find the legs are just too skinny!

Join us for this Ginger Jeans Make Your Own Jeans workshop where you will learn how to fit the jeans to your body and fit yourself to a T to perfectly fit jeans! Once you make a pair of Ginger jeans you will not want to purchase another pair of store-bought jeans!

The process is not as difficult as you think!

The Workshop

The cost of this Workshop is $395 and it includes three days of sewing on the weekend.  This cost includes use of shop equipment, jean kit, pattern, and 16+ hours of guided sewing instruction. This pattern is designed for those with the curvy body in mind and has two different fit styles – regular waist and high-rise skinny jeans using stretch denim. 

You will learn how to choose the correct size, how to insert a fly-front zipper, how to topstitch, finish seams using a serger or flat seams for comfort, and then adding the jean button and rivets. We will also learn some quick techniques for a faster jean sew. You may NOT finish your jeans in class, but you will be able to complete them at home.

This workshop also includes 2.5 yards of denim fabric, the hardware kit, and the Ginger Jean Pattern and a special gift!
