Announcing: Jeans Techniques Webinar

When I discovered the online world of sewing, BurdaStyle was the first place I landed. On my first visit, I remember seeing pictures of a red coat that I thought was too good to be true (was it LizaJane's?) and getting to know sewists like Gertie for the first time. Over the years, it has become a place of learning and sharing, and more recently has grown into a US magazine and a place for online classes.

For this reason, I am thrilled to announce that I am working with BurdaStyle to offer you a live webinar! On September 25 at 11am EST, you will be able to join me for Jeans Techniques: How to make elegant, strong, and professional-looking jeans, pants, and trousers. This is a session I've been wanting to share for a long time, and I am so excited to be able to do it in this way!

Over the past few months, I have been hard at work on the presentation. The webinar contains full color photos with step-by-step instructions for each part of the process. If you've ever wondered how I do my seam finishes, what my tricks are for belt loops, or wanted to reinforce your stitches to make jeans that last, this is the class for you! I will be going over everything from necessary tools, order of construction, and various techniques for every step, from pocket construction to zipper shields. Take a sneak peak, below:

If you're interested, you can read more about the class at BurdaStyle. I hope you'll join me!


  1. Hey, cool! That's me! I actually pulled my red coat out the other day. I wore it a lot when I first made it but I have since sort of forgotten about it. There are things that I would definitely do differently if I made it again, but it was such a good learning experience. I get Burdastyle emails and I was checking out some of their videos the other day. Congrats on the teaching gig!

  2. Hi Meg. I got an email announcing this class and that got me to know your blog.
    So, I'm sold!
    I really like your writing and you have so much information here I am ... overwhelmed! in love! :)

    nice work, girl. I'll be around :)

    1. Awww thank you - you just made my day! See you on the 25th!
