If you haven’t worked with denim before, we’ve got some helpful tips to make sure you get the best result. Don’t be scared of denim – it’s worth the effort.
- Wash your denim fabric before you use it to prevent shrinkage and colour bleeding
- Use a denim-specific fabric needle, or a thicker needle than you would normally use, on your sewing machine
- Use a good quality thread
- Press seams on a cotton setting with steam
- Sew slowly, especially over areas of bulk
