Sew Your Own Jeans w Lauren Taylor

to Feb 23

Sew Your Own Jeans w Lauren Taylor

Sew Your Own Jeans w LLADYBIRD
550.00

Fitting + Cutting Half Day: Friday, February 21st 2-6pm

Instruction: February 22nd & 23rd, 10a - 5p

Let’s kick off the new decade with a bang and sew up some custom jeans! While making jeans seems like it would be intimidating and difficult, it doesn't have to be - and our instructor LLADYBIRD (Lauren Taylor) is going to show you just how easy (and fun!) it can be!

Students will learn using the Ginger Jeans from Closet Case Patterns* - a classic high-rise skinny jean made with stretch denim.  We will go over everything you need to know to make a professional looking pair of jeans - choosing the correct size, performing minor pattern alterations and basic fitting adjustments, tips for accurate topstitching, serged seam finishes, an easy fly-front zipper, and installing all that fun hardware! We will kick off the weekend with a half day to choose your size (we will have samples of the Ginger Jeans pre-made so you can try them on!) and cutting and marking your denim. Construction will begin on Saturday and continue through the weekend. You will leave with not only a new pair of jeans, but also the knowledge and empowerment to make more on your own!

* Please Note: The Ginger jeans pattern is available in sizes 0-20. For sizes 20-28, students can opt to use the Ames Jeans from Cashmerette instead.

Prior sewing experience is required to take this class. You must be comfortable threading and operating a sewing machine, and have sewn at least one garment pattern. This class is best suited for intermediate seamstresses or adventurous beginners with a little experience under their belt.

Class fee includes the following:

  • 18 hours of instruction

  • All notions + hardware - thread, denim needles, topstitching thread, rivets and buttons, interfacing

  • Use of our marking, measuring, cutting, and sewing tools

  • Use of our Janome sewing machines

  • 15% off all in store purchases throughout the weekend

  • A goodie bag filled with some helpful notions & materials

  • Coffee, water, snacks throughout the weekend

Students will be responsible for supplying their own fabric (denim + pocketing) and pattern. Specific material requirements and schedule will be sent to participants in advance of workshop.  Click here to see Nashville Area info to help plan your trip!
