Week 2: Sewing the Jeans – This is the week the bulk of the sewing will be done. We’ll start putting the jeans together by cutting & sewing the pockets. Followed by the fly & zipper. Finally we’ll be sewing the front & back of the jeans together

Week  3: Finishing the Jeans – This is the class we’ll be finishing up anything that’s not done. Yolk, waistband, hemming and button. Can you believe you’ll be leaving this class with your very own jeans?
