  • Gr8 tips. I don't particularly like the rippling of the commercial jeans hem though.
    I prefer my hems neat and flat.

  • Great video. Do you think that a seamstress/tailor could make a pattern out of a pair of my own Levi's 513s, and duplicate them?
    Or would that be a very difficult job?
    (Levi has stopped making the 513 and they're the only ones that fit me…)

  • Great tips; as Wondertape is quite expensive, could you use regular hemming tape instead? Kind of a belt & braces thing 😊

  • Omg.. the wonder tape trick! I need to try it. I have been struggling with a waistband on a pair of denim dungarees. I did create the fold already similar to what you described but struggled to get the seam neat and fasten all of the waistband on the inside.

  • Really helpful tips, thank you. Definitely 2019 is the year for jeans in my world! Did I just put that in writing?! Eeeeek.

  • About Wonder Tape – If you are in the US, I find that the cheapest place to buy Wonder Tape is Wawak Sewing Supplies, esp if you can buy it when they have it on sale. Their regular price is cheaper than buying it at JoAnn Fabric with the 50% off coupon. https://www.wawak.com/Wash-Away-Wonder-Tape-1-4-x-10-yds.

  • You can also use the chain stitch on a coverstitch machine to do the topstitching in other places beyond the hem! I recently made jeans using a stretch denim and chainstitched all of the horizontal topstitching (i.e. in the direction of stretch). It has held up great so far, and now I need to go back and restitch the back pocket topstitching (done with regular sewing machine) because a few stitches have popped out during wear. We’ll see how that goes, since I definitely have less precise control over that speedy coverstitch!

  • Fantastic! Thank you for all the hints and tips for jeans making. I've successfully made two pairs of Ginger Jeans and I love them. I'm just about to make another pair, so will apply your great tips!

  • Gday. Great tips you have shown there, I have not made a pair of jeans yet, not sure if I am brave enough yet. I noticed you had painted only 9 of your nails, or so it looked, did you miss one? Thank u for sharing, have a good day.

  • Excellent tips, Johanna! Your jeans look fabulous. Love to use Wondertape and the edge stitch foot for top stitching.

  • This video couldn't have come at a better time, since I'm doing the men's jeans sew-along on Thread Theory. Also, there's an interesting video on Angela Kane's channel about a technique she uses for the buttonhole. She uses a braiding foot so she can get a gimp thread in there and does it with zigzag, slowly, "by hand". Looks like it takes some practice, but could yield some good results? I'm going to give it a shot anyway. Just thought I'd pass that along.

  • Perfect timing! I'm getting ready to sew my 6th pair (4th for me) and this is all so helpful. Thank you.

  • I found the information using Wondertape very interesting, and, as other comments suggest, can be used in many instances. Using a template for pockets, or any shape, is very good advice. Thank you.

  • I used my edge stitcher foot for the first time to top stitch on a bag I made. It is amazing; I'll be using it a lot more from now on.

  • Beautiful work on your jeans. Thank you for the information, very helpful.

  • Always good to hear your tips Johanna. The finishes you get are superb.
    Wonder tape is so useful and before the wash away I used wonder web to fix in place.

    That hump item I know as a cover plate. A different shape that’s like a two thonged fork with two depths.

    Would the jeans foot work in conjunction with a single hole needle plate to get the force focused directly at the point of the needle?

  • Your jeans are beautiful…I also use wonder tape for placement of patch pockets…prevents them from shifting under the presser foot as I sew……..button holes are still the bane of my sewing existence…………did you use the pre-set bar tack function of your sewing machine to attach the belt loops?………I make my belt loops with a double needle since I don't have a cover stitch machine & get a very similar result…………as always. great video with loads of terrific tips…………………
