Jeans Fitting Seminar - Sunday, Aug 7th, Concord MABy Deepika on 7/15/11 4:33 PM

Join us on August 7, 2011 for a Jeans Fitting Seminar with PR teacher and designer Jennifer Stern

When: Sunday, August 7, 2011 from Noon to 4 PM
Where: Quilter's Way at 75 Commonwealth Ave., Concord, MA.

Learn how to handle denim and get the perfect fit on your jeans.
Jennifer will talk about:

  • The pros and cons of stretch fabric vs. non-stretch fabric
  • Why you need to pre-wash denim (more than once!)
  • Choosing the right notions to get professional results
  • How to work with a fit muslin to achieve the perfect fit
  • Fit adjustments like getting the waist band to sit on your waist or where it's comfortable for you
  • How the shape of the front and back crotch can make or break the fit of your jeans
  • How to create a little more sitting room without adding to the width of your pattern pieces.
  • Tackling tough fitting problems like smiles or whiskers around the front.
  • Ask Jennifer your jeans questions and more...

Students will try on different sizes of muslins to help identify common fitting adjustments.

Also, students will see a trunk show of Jennifer's work!

Preregistration is required! No registrations will be accepted on the day of the seminar.

Spaces are limited.

Cost: $25.00 (FoPR: $22.50)
