Was just ironing my Coldwater Creek Jeans and made some interesting observations… On this pair – waistband cut on straight of grain at center back – where there is a seam in the waistband underneath the belt loop….and then the waistband is bias at the center front…
I wonder…………does anyone else notice things like this while ironing?
By the way – if you make your own jeans, or need to do hemming or altering – I carry that gold (Topaz) Jeans Stitch thread – it is heavier than normal… And I’d recommend a Jeans/Denim Needle size 90 or 100 – test to see which works for you… Or even perhaps the Topstitching Needle…size 90 or 100... Wish I could say exactly which one would work, but all depends on your machine, and the denim weight. Needles are 25% off regular prices EVERY DAY at www.londas-sewing.com
Was fun to teach my Care & Feeding of your Sewing Machine class at the Cincinnati Creative Festival – and it was VERY well received. Look for it at more sewing shows around the country. Think I’ll even revive my old class taught at my fabric store years ago: Londa’s Secrets….
