This is a preview of my fourteen part series and shows how to use and attach Prym Fasteners.

The video series and Making Jeans eBook can be found on my site -

Technique Materials

Denim. Stretch would be best (a little Elastine, Lycra or Spandex) but traditional denim is ok - go up a size though.
If your machine isn't up to sewing through the thick layers, choose a lightweight. Corduroy is also great for jeans and is less dense.

      Hello hasina, Of course drafting from measurements is a whole new subject. I would like to cover pattern drafting, it is on my list to do. Hope you can wait!

      Thanks for commenting.

    Way to go Angela, I love your tutorials so very much. They are the primary reason I plan to renew my subscription to your site. I am finished with all of my holiday projects and I am finally ready to start my jeans project and I’ve decided to use your pattern as it looks like it has a slightly longer rise than some of the other commerically available patterns. This is a plus for me as I’m very tall and long waisted. Anyway, looking forward to seeing the entire jeans videos!

      Hi wzdreams, Congratulations on your Project of the Week. Fantastic! Not sure you need lessons from me!

      Thanks for your support. Good luck with the jeans. I was pretty sure people would like this classic – it will never, ever date.

    I have almost finished my first pair of jeans, i thought i would make them over the christmas break but i got one of those nasty winter bugs and couldnt finish them :( plus i lost quite a bit of weight from the bug and i know they now wont fit, but i will get them finished soon and get them on Burdastyle, i have to say that the pattern and instructions are just fab and i will use them again and again jj:)x

      Really looking forward to seeing your jeans. It’s such a compliment when a BurdaStyle sewer uploads one’s design as a project.

      Yes, it gets easier the more times you make this pattern and there is plenty of scope for variations.

    You tackled JEANS? You go, girl! As for ads, I’ve chosen to put only the small overlay ones in my videos so viewers don’t have to sit through preview ads that don’t interest them… people are definitely willing to pay / click to support good content. I’ve polled my viewers (I also get 3,000 a day) and the general consensus is, “Do what you need to, to make it worth your time… but don’t stop making videos!”

    The jeans look fantastic!

      Hi Marzipan, Love your site. Thanks for the comment. Yes, advertising is a bugbear of mine. I’ve just been approved for rentals on YouTube – exciting – I’ll see how that works out. But my members will always get the best deal.
