Hi Everyone!  I apologize for the inconvenience, but my website is undergoing a transition.   After ridding it of all the viruses and other nasty stuff, some of my content disappeared as well.  I’m going to look at this as an opportunity to update :)









Thank you for visiting j stern designs!

    Jennifer, I take your class on Pattern Review but I wanted to ask you about your class on Craftsy. I’ve never sewn a pair of pants or jeans before. My sewing skills are pretty basic. Do you think your class
    The Perfect Jeans Fitting Techniques for Every Body
    is something that I could take even though I’m new at garment sewing?

      Hi Liz,
      The Craftsy Jean Fitting Class is pretty basic. If you watch it start to finish, you can probably use the techniques to fit a jean pattern. (Plus, I’ll help you :) … The Patternreview class Blue Prints to Blue Jeans includes step-by-step construction. I did this class a long time ago, so I kinda of feel like the Craftsy class is more up to date in terms of fitting. Let me know if you need more help! Thanks Jen

    Hi Jennifer,
    First of all thank you for your great class on Craftsy. Spot on. I hope to subscribe to many more. How about a class about fitting the t-shirt or a blouse with your patterns included? My question is where do I find a sizing chart for your patterns IN METRIC. I am from the Netherlands, which means that I must calculate every time how much centimeters the mesurement would be. I still have no idea how big a measurement in inches would be. Thank you, Carmen Zoe

      Hi Carmen,
      Thanks for taking my Jean Fitting Class on Craftsy :) I was actually shooting a new class this week! Did you know that I teach on as well? I have a class called Fit your Tee to a Tee… this class shows you how to fit the pattern as well as how to construct it! And, if you need help constructing your jeans, I also have another class called Blue Prints to Blue Jeans. These classes are video classes as well, and I produce them myself, so they are longer and show more details. …and as far as metric measurements, I think it would be a great idea for me to create a measurement conversion chart. I’ll put it on my to-do list! In the meantime, there are 2.5 centimeters to 1 inch… so if you multiply the inches by 2 1/2… you’ll get the metric equivalent. For example 10 inches = 25 centimeters. :)
