Sewing 201: Sewing with Denim



Sewing with denim doesn’t have to be daunting! Learn how to sew with and apply trims to denim while creating a pair of jeans or shorts.

Take your sewing skills to the next level. In this three part class we will learn how to sew with denim while creating a pair of jeans or denim shorts. We will start by reviewing our patterns against body measurements and making any necessary adjustments to suit your body. We will both complete your jeans or shorts and learn the necessary skills/techniques for sewing heavyweight fabrics.
