Upcycle & Alter Your Jeans & Pants


An educational webinar with
Pamela Leggett, Owner, Pamela's Patterns

Join us on Tuesday, October 19
@ 7:15 pm via Zoom

Small and simple changes to your ready-to-wear jeans and pants can make a big difference in how they fit.  A hour or two of your time can result in pants and jeans you will love to wear!  

  • Gapping at the back waist?  See how to use a simple elastic method that eliminates taking off the waistband and still looks smooth and tailored.  

  • Waist too tight?  Learn how to add a simple side seam gusset.  

  • Hate the bulk of zippers and buttons?  See how to add a smoothing knit waistband.  

  • Baggy back legs?  Magically take out fabric from only the back.  

  • Crotch too long?  Yep, we can fix that too!  

  • In addition, you will also learn how to narrow and re-shape leg widths and professionally hem pants and jeans.

Pamela Leggett has been teaching sewing since 1981. Specializing in pattern fitting, fine garment sewing skills, knits and serging, she has developed a fun and informative teaching style that is available in her patterns, social media, and YouTube channel.

One of Pamela's passions is creating garments that flatter and fit the wearer. Her desire to teach others to achieve the perfect fit led her to the Palmer/Pletsch pattern fitting method, which she has used to help hundreds of women successfully achieve good fit and a renewed love of garment sewing. It is with this knowledge that she created Pamela's Patterns, which have many fitting solutions and adjustments built in the patterns.

Pamela's Patterns have been reviewed and featured in magazines and on-line review sites. Pamela is a contributing writer, book author and video personality for Threads Magazine, an instructor for Craftsy, director of the Palmer/Pletsch Philadelphia and Connecticut Sewing Workshops and a national sewing/serging educator. She has also appeared on PBS’s Sewing With Nancy and Canada’s The Shopping Channel. www.pamelaspatterns.com
