Learn to Sew Jeans - Dawn Jeans

Date: 20th - 21st November 2021

We're excited to be restarting our workshops after a hiatus during lockdown! Please read our Workshop Corona Policy before booking to ensure you are happy with the additional safety measures we will be taking during the class. 


Various dates available

10:30am - 6pm on both days

6 Broadway Market Mews, London, E8 4TS

The workshop will take place in our shop just behind Broadway Market. It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 10 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath overground stations.  


In this class you will sew a pair of custom-fit jeans in a two day intensive class, with a focus on fit and professional looking construction.  You will use Megan Nielsen's Dawn Jeans pattern to sew a pair of high waisted, non stretch jeans with the choice of three different leg options - straight, tapered or wide. The pattern will be posted to you prior to the class so you can make the necessary preparations. The class will be taught by Hannah and Rosie of The New Craft House.  


This workshop is suitable for an intermediate or confident beginner sewist who is excited to make jeans, but needs a little encouraging hand holding and fitting advice. You should be comfortable using a sewing machine and sewing patterns.



+ Your pre-cut and basted jeans. For this you will need 2-3 metres of non-stretch denim. Must be pre-washed and pressed (should bring extra in case we need to make fit adjustments to pattern)

+ 0.5 metre fusible interfacing

+ 1/2 metre cotton lining

+ 2x spool topstitching thread

+ 1 spool of regular polyester thread (ie. Mettler or Gutermann)

In order to make the most out of the time spent in the workshop you'll want to come to class on Saturday with your pattern pieces cut and basted. Need help? We'll be on hand in our studio in the evenings the week before the workshop. Just contact us after booking to arrange a drop-in!

"I cannot believe that I actually left the workshop, as promised, with a perfect fitting pair of jeans. The two teachers were amazing and with endless patience for a student as needy as I am. Honestly, it was my birthday weekend and there could not have been a better way to have spent it. Thank you"
