This amazing 3 day course will, run on one of the last two weekends in September 2018
This class is suitable for competent and developing dressmakers who want to learn how to make their own made to measure jeans using the Ginger Jeans pattern. *** You can now also make the Ames jeans by Cashmerette instead***
Join the winner of the 2016 Great British Sewing Bee, Charlotte Newland on this 3 day course and make a perfecly fiiting pair of jeans, you'll have the adjusted pattern to take away with you to make more jeans at home!
With a modern and flattering cut, Ginger Jeans are the daily staple you’ll reach for again and again. View A features a comfortable low rise with narrow stovepipe legs. View B is sexy and high-waisted with skinny legs and a tummy-slimming pocket stay. Engineered to be as flattering as possible, Ginger Jeans feature subtly shaped back pockets to highlight the curve of the bum, slimming side seams and a higher back rise to prevent peekabooty. Designed for stretch denim, Ginger Jeans will hug you in all the right places.
The Ames Jeans, make a date with denim! These 5-pocket wardrobe essentials are the real deal, with features like rivets, belt loops and a fly front. When it comes to jeans, perfect fit is a must. Get the look you love tailored for apple or pear shapes, with two leg options - skinny or straight. Hold the style together with a high rise and pocket stay for secret smooth shaping.
Fabric: Stretch denim with at least 2% lycra. See quantities and other supplies required here.
