Pull On Jeans Workshop : with Ron Collins : starts Wednesday October 23, 10am-5pm for 3 consecutive days

$600.00 CAD

THE WORKROOM PARKDALE : This workshop is scheduled to take place in our new studio at 207 Cowan Avenue, Unit A. We can't wait to welcome you there!

Join our special guest instructor, Ron Collins, for The Other Ultimate Pull On Jeans Workshop (Special 3 Session Edition!)

If you have not sewn fitted pants before this is the workshop to start out with! 

The Jalie “Eleonore” pattern is a great stretch pull-on jean (long or cropped) with an extra wide waistband.  It has the details of a jean yoke and back patch pockets, with the details of a faux front pocket and fly front which is a sharp detail.  Students will try on the jeans that have been made up in a stretch woven denim with 20% stretch in the cross grain.

Ron has sewn the 15 different sizes (4-22) in the “Eleonore” for you to try, so all necessary pattern fitting adjustments are made to the pattern before you cut the fabric.   Ron will then identify your desired fit and give you the necessary alterations (flat seat, protruding seat, low seat, knock/bowed legs, gaping waistband, length, etc.) for your jeans before cutting into your pattern.

This garment class meets each day for three consecutive days, beginning Wednesday October 23, 24 & 25.
There will be a one hour lunch break each day.
