The Jeans-Making Queen, Lauren Taylor (aka LLADYBIRD), is joining us at Makers Hideaway for the ultimate sewing weekend. Over the course of 2-1/2 days, she will help take your sewing skills to the next level and you will leave with your very own pair of custom jeans!

Using the Ginger Jeans or Ames Jeans as your guide, Lauren will walk you thru each step toward creating your own professional looking jeans. She’ll cover everything from choosing the correct size and performing basic fit adjustments to installing a fly zipper and adding professional jeans hardware.

We’ll check-in and get settled Thursday night and be ready for class to begin Friday morning. Lauren will kick things off by letting everyone try on her pre-made Ginger Jeans samples to see what size works best and learn more about fit. Then, let the official cutting and fitting begin! Instruction on jeans construction and all the finishing touches will continue thru the weekend and everyone will be ready to head home Sunday afternoon with their very own pair of jeans! Lauren’s goal is to also leave you with all the skills and confidence you need to go home and make many more!
