Subject: Blueprint to Jeans Video Class Recommendation Date: 2/28/13 8:52 AM

I just signed up for Jennifer Sterns Blueprint to Blue Jeans PR Class today. I haven't watched any videos yet but I want to let others know about my first impressions. I have taken her Club EMB classes and her Fit to a Tee video class and I think she is very good at responding to Message Board posts. The T videos were well put together as a sew along and to demonstrate alterations. I would expect these Jeans videos to also hit those high marks for content.

For this Jeans class she created an 89 page pdf file that truly is a blueprint!

It is jam packed with information, photos, and illustrations. If you have purchased a jeans or pant pattern from any company and got lost in the directions of to assemble it then this PDF file will be your lifesaver. She has also included nearly every alteration you can think of in the file- images of what a poor fit looks like and step by directions of how to correct it. This alone was nearly worth the cost of the class. But of course there is more- fabric and notion resources, how-to videos that never expire and Jennifer's personal responses to your unique questions.

If any PR Member is on the fence about taking this class I would say DON'T hesitate. Use your Promo coupon today- unless you are a jeans expert you won't regret it!

Ok so I skipped through to watch the fly zipper insertion video since that is always a stumbling area for me on any pant.

I took Shannon's basic PR class, watched endless YouTube videoes and thumbed through countless books and mag tutorials. I can insert them but I have to restudy my references each time and even then I feel like I am jumping into the water and not really swimming very well.

Jennifer's 20 min video in this class is superb. It is not choppy and edited- it starts with the single pattern pieces, overlocking them, then leads you through the entire process ending at a top stitched fly and front crotch. You will follow along as she changes feet, needles and threads between the construction and top stitching.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video was worth a million to me. Nothing remains a mystery anymore. She not only showed every detail- she also explained the reasons behind doing each step. My favorite was her tip on how to correct a buttonhole that turned out poorly stitched in the waistband due to the bulkiness in the waistband seam. That has happened to me more than once- the automatic buttonhole foot catches on the waistband edge.

I can mimic every step now with the confidence that my front fly zippers will turn out perfect.
