Detroit Denim - Make Your Own Jeans Workshop
This workshop is a four-week-long workshop where you (along with some experienced help & assistance) design, cut, sew & finish your own custom pair of selvedge denim jeans. Always wanted that pair of jeans that where made expressly for you? Now is your chance to roll up your sleeves and make it happen. Choose from various US made selvedge denims. Select your fly type (as long as it's button fly) - and put it all together. No worries if you're not an experienced sewer; we will help you along the way to make sure the jeans turn out great.

Starting Monday, January 7th from 6:00-9:00p and for the next 3 Mondays, you will start with selecting the fit & materials for your jeans. Each week will progress further until the last week when you will complete your jeans.

Class limited to 5 people.
