Stretch Jeans with Jennifer Stern-Hasemann
Are they knit jeans…or dress pants? Update your wardrobe with the most comfortable knit jeans you’ve ever tried on.
We will work with my knit-jean pattern; it's easy to fit and sew. Start by trying on samples to make quick work of choosing your size. Then I’ll show you how to fine-tune the fit.
Use your adjusted pattern pieces to sew a muslin. In addition to perfecting the fit of your pattern, we’ll explore different fabric and style choices. I’ll show you how to create an easy faux-front fly and how to transform the front pockets into a comfort panel.
Then you’ll have a front-row seat for a trunk show featuring a variety of knit jeans. You’ll be amazed at how using fabrics like stretch velvet, luxe double knits, and even stretch woven fabrics can transform your comfy knit jeans into dress pants that are perfect for every occasion.
