Summer Jeans Workshop/July 19-21


  • Modern Maker 13B Herman St. Glen Ridge, NJ 07003 (map)

Hate ill-fitting jeans? Why not make your own! In this Jeans Workshop, over the course of a weekend you will cut and sew your own high rise jeans (the Megan Nielson Dawn Jean). This is a two day sewing workshop with a custom fit session on Friday night (along with wine & cheese). Once you’ve found your fit, we’ll make alterations to your pattern pieces, cut the premium denim and start sewing! On Sunday evening you’ll walk out of our studio dope as hell. Your tuition includes delicious lunches, jean sewing pattern, and a premium denim kit (denim, topstitching thread and hardware). Prior to the start of class, you’ll receive a detailed survey regarding your sizing and denim preferences.

July 19 (Friday) 7-10pm: try on sample jeans, find your fit, and pick your pant leg style (tapered, straight, or wide leg)

July 20 (Saturday) 10-5: cut fabric, sew pockets, install zip or button fly, attach back yoke, top stitch pockets

July 21 (Sunday) 10-5: sew inseam, attach waistband and belt loops, finish with premium hardware and VOILA!

This class is suitable for adventurous beginners on up through accomplished sewists who are eager to make their first pair of jeans.
