Making your own jeans is a satisfying and rewarding project, and it's not as hard as you think; it's actually really fun! Anyone with a sewing machine can make a pair of beautifully fitting custom made jeans and this ebook shows you how.
Sewing Your Jeans is a comprehensive guide to DIY jeans construction, featuring 13 lessons with extremely thorough instructions, helpful hyperlinks and step by step photos that break down the jeans making process into digestible portions in over 90 beautiful pages. Go at your own pace and learn new skills and confidence as your jeans take shape. Based on the sewalong that accompanied the Ginger Jeans pattern, this PDF book is a portable, easy to read and complete jeans-making course, with even more pictures and tips, and a greatly expanded fitting chapter that uses real world case studies to help you master the perfect fit.
This ebook is a great accompaniment to any jeans pattern as you are taken through construction from sourcing denim to installing rivets and buttons yourself. As added incentive, bonus chapters have been added which walk you through modifying an existing pattern to make flared jeans, as well as adding ankle zippers to skinnies. We've also included a printable Cutting List to help you organize your jeans-making projects.
