Just My Luck Jeans Virtual Sewing Workshop

The Just My Luck Jeans Virtual Sewing Workshop is meant to accompany the Just My Luck Jeans PDF pattern.

Workshops are taught by Isabelle Levine, founder and pattern designer for Forest & Thread. All sessions are pre-recorded from her home studio in Brooklyn, NY.

The workshop includes 5 separate sessions, breaking down the pattern into smaller segments. Each session includes between 1-2 hours of footage utilizing a 2-camera set-up, 1 focusing on the table/sewing machine and 1 focusing on Isabelle so you can see her face while she instructs you through the entire construction process. There is also a workshop portal where students can ask questions directly to Isabelle.

Students will need a computer, tablet, or smart phone with access to the internet in order to watch the workshops.
