Tutorial: How to Sew a Fly Front on your Ames Jeans


One of the most intimidating bits of sewing jeans is learning how to sew a fly front, but if you take it step by step, it’s really not so bad! In fact, once you’ve done it a few times it actually becomes quite an intuitive process.

To help you along, here’s the video on how to sew a fly front for the Cashmerette Ames Jeans from our online¬†Jeans Making for Curves workshop, where I take you through each step in detail.

If you’d like more instruction like this, on every single stage of making the Cashmerette Ames Jeans, enrollment in the full workshop is always open – and you can get help whenever you need it, from the comfort of your own home.

Personally, I love online workshops when I’m learning new sewing skills, because I can see each technique really close up and watch it over and over again – which is even better than being at an in-person workshop where demonstrations are usually only done once, and you’re often peering over someone else’s shoulder. The only real piece that’s missing vs. “in real life” classes is being able to get personalized advice – but in fact all our workshops have a comments section where you can ask questions and get answers back from me, so it’s almost as good as having me in the room with you!

So that’s how to sew a fly front – and we can’t wait to see your Ames Jeans!

Let me know what you think!
