Jeans That Fit 5 day workshop

Your instructor, Helen Bartley, pant fitting expert and author of Fit and Sew Custom Jeans, will guide you through five days of fitting and sewing your best jeans.

Learn how to achieve the look and fit you want. The workshop includes the Palmer/Pletsch jeans pattern Butterick 6840, which we have sewn in every size for you to try on, but you may sew any jeans pattern printed on tissue. You will learn how to choose the best pattern size based on your fit needs and your fabric.

You will learn how to alter your pattern and to fit as you sew. Helen will demonstrate sewing all the jeans pockets, traditional jeans fly zipper, threads and techniques for topstitching, waistbands, belt carriers, button, buttonholes, and rivets.
