I decided to sign up for the Sew Your Dream Jeans workshop from Closet Case not long after I made my first pair of Morgan jeans.
After the buzz of making my first pair of jeans wore off a bit, I realised I still had A LOT to learn when it came to my denim sewing skills and perfecting the fit of my jeans. So when Heather Lou released this workshop I felt it would be a worthwhile investment if it meant I could really make a great pair of jean.
And it was totally worth it.
The workshop is split into lots of short video classes, each going through a different topic – from buying denim, to sizing and fit and of course each step in the construction process. They’re all about 20-30 minutes long and they come with a written section of tips too. You can ask Heather Lou questions directly on each class page via a comments section.
Both stretch denim and woven denim jeans are covered and these are tips that’ll apply to all jeans even if you’re not using a Closet Case pattern. The course comes with the mid rise Ginger jeans pattern included and a discount code if you wanted to get the high rise Gingers or the Morgan jeans instead.
Heather Lou comes across as charming and down to earth. And she has amazing in depth knowledge about making jeans – she’s definitely the right person to take lessons from! She makes everything seem so straightforward that even the fly construction seemed simple!
If you’ve ever been scared about making jeans I’d definitely recommend taking this online course. It will change everything!
I’ve just finished off my first pair of Ginger jeans and OMG my butt has never looked so good. I’ll be blogging about it on here soon!
