Sew your own pair of unique handmade jeans in this 2-day workshop. Use the Closet Case Patterns Ginger jeans (skinny or regular fit) or Morgan jeans (boyfriend fit) patterns to create your own bespoke jeans!
You will be sent the jeans pattern of your choice to pre-cut the paper pattern pieces at home before the workshop. You will make any adjustments to the pattern, with our help, in the workshop before cutting your fabric. We’re here to support you before the workshop too so please get in touch if you have any questions.
This workshop focuses on the construction techniques involved with making a pair of jeans from scratch including resolving some common fitting issues, but if you want to focus on perfecting the fit of your jeans our 6 Week evening course, Dressmaking to Fit, is where we can help you.
Our tutor will help you every step of the way with demonstrations and advice.
