Hello all great job on saturday! You will have a pair of jeans like no other that fit well, the rise exactly to where you want it and not to mention the back pocket design personalized!
For the next class please have your pocket design ready to use, be sure you have created a test pocket just to see what it looks like. Sometimes what we envision and what the actual results are may be 2 different things so to avoid dissappointment please be sure you are happy with the design beforehand. To trasfer the design on the pocket test piece use your tracing wheel and a paper that is close to the thread colour. I will show you how to prepare the pocket in class and install it as well. If you want belt loops cut a strip of fabric equal to the total length of all the loops and twice the width you want and bring it to class. You will be adding the waistband as well so have some interfacing to use on the waistband.
Please have the contrasting thread for topstitching as well as jeans button on hand. They really are the best as they do not come off easily.
Keep up the good work!
