Fit and Sew Custom Jeans - Sewing Book

Classic and Creative Sewing Techniques for Modern Patterns

There is nothing like wearing your own custom fit and sewn jeans! Start with a style you like and use this book by author and certified sewing instructor Helen Bartley to create a pair of jeans that fits your unique body and your unique style.

Over 1,200 illustrated techniques and photos. 

Learn about:

  • Choosing jeans materials and tools.
  • Determining your best pattern size.
  • Fitting the pattern to your unique shape.
  • Step-by-step construction order that includes fly front, pockets, seams, waistband, topstitching, bartacking, and hems PLUS when and where to fit as you sew.
  • Customizing with unique stitching and hardware.

Once you perfect traditional jeans, try Helen’s creative modifications for button fly fronts, welt and trouser pockets, waistband variations and changing up your bottom line with a tulip hem or ankle zips.

Spiral addition autographed by both Helen and Hazel (her cat)!
