Fit and Sew Custom Jeans

Classic and Creative Sewing Techniques for Modern Patterns

Helen Bartley


Fit and Sew Custom Jeans is unique in that it addresses both the order of construction and fit simultaneously.

The author uses a combination of tissue-fitting and fabric fitting. This means not using a typical ready-to-wear sewing order.

  • See the chart on what size to choose based on the type of fabric you have
  • Fill out the Jeans Profile so you consider how fitted you want the jeans for how they will be worn
  • Prepare the tissue for trying on to determine rise, width, length and crotch shape
  • Learn how to gauge how much smaller the pattern can be in width based on a stretch of the denim
