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 a delicious lunch, jean sewing pattern, and a premium denim kit (your choice of rigid or very light stretch denim and topstitching color). Three weeks prior to the start of class, you’ll receive a detailed survey regarding your sizing and denim preferences.
Sept. 13 (Friday) 7-10pm: try on sample jeans, find your fit, and pick your pant leg style (tapered, straight, or wide leg)
Sept. 14 (Saturday) 10-5: cut fabric, sew pockets, install zip or button fly, attach back yoke, top stitch pockets
Sept. 15 (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.
