At a glance

Tips and tricks for making long-lasting, beautiful pants

Photos and step-by-step instructions to supplement your pattern booklet

Perfect for intermediate sewists who want to improve their technique


As a self-taught seamstress, I was once very intimidated by making pants. After waiting years, I sewed my first pair only to find that they are not as hard as I thought, especially once I learned the right techniques! This webinar leads participants through proper jeans construction, covering everything from proper seam finishes to how to reinforce your stitching for jeans that last. It’s perfect for sewing up a pair for yourself, your partner, or a child (should they be so lucky!).

The webinar contains full color photos with step-by-step instructions for each part of the process. Participants will learn about the necessary tools, order of construction, and various techniques for every step, from pocket construction to inserting belt loops. If you’ve ever sewn pants before and want to take your construction to the next level, or if you are a sewist who wants more guidance than the pattern booklet, this is the webinar for you!

  • Proper tools and materials
  • Various seam finishes for a professional look
  • Proper order of construction
  • How to sew a fly-front zipper
  • How to create sturdy seams that will hold up to every day wear
