Today is the official release day of my third sewing book Sewing Jeans: The complete step-by-step guide! It’s been two years in the making to create my biggest book yet, and while I love all my sewing books, this is definitely the book I’m the proudest of since it was such a mammoth task.
Many of you who pre-ordered Sewing Jeans have already gotten your print copies before the release date, and I’m grateful for all the DM:s, comments, emails and mentions telling me you’ve gotten the book and that you really like it too!
It makes me so happy to hear that you find the instructions very easy to follow and that the book is packed with helpful info! I’ve also gotten so many thumbs up for the visually-driven design and that you think it’s a beautiful book. Thank you so much!
Bonus patterns included
My book comes with a little Easter egg, so to speak. While there are no garment patterns included in the book since there are already so many jeans patterns out there (check my extensive jeans sewing pattern list for ideas). I’ve instead created this big pattern library for all the details that are also a part of a jeans sewing pattern.
In the tool kit, you’ll find 5 different back pocket designs (in six sizes), front pockets pattern pieces, decorative topstitching templates for the back pockets and of course also patterns for things like a button fly and zipper closure. That downloadable (link is in the book) PDF-patten booklet is 129 pages long, but I’ve organized it neatly so you’ll be able to easily find and print out the pattern piece that you want.
Where to buy the book
Check out my Sewing Jeans book page for book shops that sells and ship the book around the world. I’m updating the list constantly, and with time the book will be sold in even more places.
Buy the ebook straight from me for the best price. It’s an interactive pdf, with lots of links, that works on any device. And in this ebook version, the pattern tool kit is included in the download.
Putting things in perspective
I also want to acknowledge that this release is such a minuscule blip on the radar, that it’s not even a blip, in the larger picture of things that are currently going on in the world at the moment. This year has challenged us in so many ways, and who knows what the future brings? But fingers crossed, we’ll be able to sense at least some type of light at the end of the tunnel soon.
In the meantime, I will make sure to keep creating content for you that is both educational and inspirational, and hopefully entertaining too! I’m very honoured to be part of this sewing community and it means so much to hear that you’ve felt helped by my content, whether it’s a sewing tip or when I’ve addressed topics such as mental health from a sewing perspective.
Stay safe and hugs <3
