The next few months I’m sewing along with Kenneth D. King. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I have joined up to learn how to recreate our favorite jeans using Kenneth D. King’s Jean-ius class on Craftsy. Here’s a reflection on my efforts to sew well.
With a month to go until the move to Seattle, it’s getting a bit crazy up in here. My sewing is likely going to slow down here for a bit, but I’m thankful that I should still be able to squeeze these bite sized classes into my schedule each week. In the video this week, Kenneth showed the class how to turn the draft into an actual pattern, including how to make pattern pieces for the details – the pockets and fly facings and such. After adding grain lines and seam allowances to all of them, we are now ready to start making our jeans!
In preparation for next week’s class, I’ve washed my denim twice. Is that enough? I hope so! But, I’m curious, how many times do you wash your denim before you cut into it?
