Can you imagine trying on 3 different jean patterns in a total of 37 sizes before you start to sew and cut into your fabric? Well, Ron has sewed the Closet Core “Ginger” pattern in both views A and B (sizes 0-20) and Jalie “Eleonore” (sizes 4- 22) for you to try on! The workshop will start off with you trying on the jeans and Ron identifying your fitting problems and will give you the necessary alterations (flat seat, protruding seat, low seat, knock/bowed legs, gaping waistband, length, etc.) for your pattern before cutting into your fabric. Also learn how to sew a hidden stay front to create a smooth and clean silhouette, giving the appearance of a flatter front. Sew the world’s best fly zipper technique that moves the zipper further into the garment and prevents the zipper being exposed at the center front. Learn tricks behind topstitching, bar tacking, belt loops, hammer in snaps, rivets and waistband applications.
8 oz. denim – needle size 80/12
10 oz. denim - needle size 80/12
12 oz. denim - needle size 90/14
I will have all 37 sizes in the 3 different patterns for you to try on:
“Ginger” (view A and B) in sizes 0 – 20
waist 24” to 39”
hip “33 to 48”
Eleonore (one view) in sizes 4 – 22
waist 27’ to 44’
hip 36” to 53”
I have also graded these patterns up in sizes if need be. Also, if you are working with another pattern besides the two on the supply list, it is best that you show up with a muslin in that pattern to get a head start on the fitting. Just make sure that the fabric that you are using for the muslin is very similar to the fabric you are using in the final jean!
