Sewing jeans is a process. It takes time to sew all the details, but they are not hard.

In Fit and Sew Custom Jeans, Helen Bartley has come up with a method that integrates fit at every step. Does it take a little more time? Yes, but you’ll love that it is YOUR fit. Don’t worry if you can’t describe the fit you want because Helen includes a Personal Jeans Profile worksheet to help you figure it out. And with Helen’s sewing order and some basting you’ll have chances to change the fit as you sew! Even then, it may take wearing your first pair and deciding what you’d change for your next pair.

Relax. Enjoy the process of creating amazing jeans!
