Pants--especially jeans--can be an intimidating sewing project, but are well worth the effort to end up with something that you look and feel great in. Expert garment sewist Eliza West will walk you through every step of construction for the Closet Core Morgan Jeans. This mid-rise, non-stretch, straight leg style is a great universal pattern for your first jeans project. The menswear Quadra Jeans or plus sized Megan Nielsen Dawn Curve Jeans may also be used.
Please come to class with your fabric pieces already cut out. This is a construction technique class only. Register for Eliza’s Fitting a Pants Pattern workshop on October 24th to learn how to customize your Morgan Jeans. If you are not confident about preparing the pattern and cutting out the pieces at home, our Sew Clothes With Confidence virtual class (will be offered in-person in spring 2022) may be the best fit for you.
Limited to 6 participants. Requires 3 participants to run. In the event of cancellation due to low enrollment, registered participants will receive notice and a refund 3 days prior to the scheduled start date of the series.
Please note our sewing studio space is on the second floor with no elevator access. We sincerely apologize for any difficulty this creates. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
