Jean Fitting 101 with Jennifer Stern-Hasemann
If you want to learn the simple techniques to fit a jeans pattern, please join us. We will work with Jennifer's Stretch Jeans Made Easy Pattern; it is easy to fit and to sew.

Start by trying on samples to make quick work of choosing your size. Then Jennifer will show you how to adjust the pieces to accommodate your curves, so you can use your adjusted pattern to sew a custom-fit muslin.

The classroom setting is the perfect place to learn about fitting yourself and others. You'll see a variety of fitting issues on different bodies as Jen provides a personal fitting for each student. You'll learn how to read the wrinkles and how to smooth them.

In addition to fitting your pattern, Jen shares tips and tricks to help you get professional results when you are ready to sew your custom-sized jeans together. You'll leave class with an adjusted stretch jeans pattern that is ready to go and the confidence to sew them!
