Jeans in a Day Class


You really can with Tory’s Jeans Class

Our kind and patient Teacher Extraordinaire TORY LEBLANC

Atlantic Sewing Guild is happy to announce that Tory  has agreed to do a reprieve of her Jalie Eleanore Jeans Class.  (we were also happy to hear the buzz of approval when we announced the class at our most recent ASG meeting)

This pull-on pant pattern is designed for stretch wovens (stretch denim!) with 20% stretch.  The Eleanore features an elastic waist, mock fly front/front pockets, back yoke, functional back pockets, plus all the top-stitching found on ready-to-wear jeans

While this is primarily a sewing technique class, minor fit issues will be addressed.  Moving the waistband higher or lower, adjusting for a curvier backside, thinner/thicker waist and width of the pant leg will be covered.  Back pocket details such as stitch design, size and ideal location on the tush will also be discussed.  If extensive fitting help is required, you are welcome to use the class time to develop your first draft of a muslin.

Jalie patterns can be purchased at the Halifax Fabricville or online at  buy pattern on-line  (available as an instant electronic download or as a standard paper pattern that will be shipped). The pattern calls for 132 or 150 cm. stretch denim, with at least 20% stretch and good recovery.  You can make this pattern with any stretch woven fabric, provided it meets the stretch/recovery requirements.

You can register for the class by paying Suzanne Pelletier, our VP & Class Co-Ordinator ($40.).  (There are limited spots so the earlier you register, the better).   There are several places you may find Suzanne: Saturday, Oct. 14 at Sew-It-Now Saturday Sewing at the Church (see below); Sew-It-Now meeting Tuesday., Oct. 17; next ASG meeting Tuesday, Nov. 14.  You could also contact her through our ASG email address or our Facebook page:
