The Most Ultimate Jean fitting and Construction Workshop August 6 - 8
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 worlds 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 top-stitching, bar tacking, belt loops, hammer in snaps, rivets and waistband applications. Accommodation and Meals are available at the Abbey but must be booked with us in advance.
