Jean Making Workshop - Weekend

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 Jean Making 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

We will begin the workshop with learning how to do a complete set of measurements – waist, high hip, low hip, derrière, thight, knees, and calves and most importantly crotch measurements. We then compare those measurements to those of the pattern.

The cost of this Workshop is $375 for the three day weekend this includes use of shop equipment, boxed catered lunch and snacks, 16+ hours of guided sewing instruction. This workshop willl utilized the pattern craftmenship the Ginger Jeans Pattern. This pattern is designed with the curvy body in mind and has two 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, serged seam finishes and 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 at home.

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