Sew a Pair of Ginger Jeans with Charlotte Newland


Availability: Coming soon

Have you ever dreamed of sewing yourself a pair of great-fitting jeans? The idea of sewing jeans can be intimidating for even the most experienced dressmakers, but in this class our talented teacher will guide you through every step, from trouser-fitting to inserting a zip-fly to top-stitching to installing jeans hardware. The Ginger Jeans pattern from Closet Case Files is a classic 5-pocket jeans sewing pattern with a modern and flattering cut designed for stretch denim. You can choose from a comfortable low rise fit with narrow stovepipe legs or a sexy and high-waisted pair with skinny legs and a tummy-slimming pocket stay.

Please note this pattern is designed for American sizes 0-20. Please see the size chart for measurements. If you fall outside the size range, this class may not be suitable for you. Please contact us before booking at [email protected]
