Intro to Jeans: Mia Jeans Class

Intro to Jeans: Mia Jeans | a sewing class at Sew Over It

Learn to sew a quintessential pair of skinny jeans in our new Intro to Jeans class, the perfect class for jeans newbies. High-waisted with a front fly and back pockets, the Mia Jeans are interesting to sew as well as being flattering, stylish and chic. They are an everyday wardrobe essential that will be quick and fun to sew again and again.

There is so much to learn on the Intro to Jeans class. You will learn how to work with stretch denim to create a great-fitting pair of skinny jeans. Master the tricky fly and back pocket placement, and learn how to attach a jeans button. We will also give you tips on beautiful topstitching, helping you to create a pair of jeans that you will be proud to wear.

On the class you will get to try on a toile to determine your size before cutting out and altering both the pattern and garment to fit as necessary. At the end of the class you will have both a garment that fits and a pattern to take away with you so you can make as many as you like!

Please note this is not a beginner’s dressmaking class – you will need to be familiar with trouser construction. Why not try the Ultimate Trousers class?

Cake and tea will be provided to help the sewing process along!
