Hardware Sold Individually
A big difference between store bought jeans and typical “homemade jeans” is in the materials. Even with a perfect pattern, the jeans you make will never feel like designer quality if you are using poor materials. If you want to use the same denim the big brands use on designer jeans don’t skip out on our denims and hardware. Our hardware is nickel / lead free, heavy duty and easy to install. Many rivet styles require a full press machine to install successfully despite being sold by other retailers with simple hand tools. You end up with tacks breaking through or them unable to hold to the material together as intended. We’ve taken the frustration out of this by sourcing SIMPLE TO INSTALL rivets. By the way, they are flat too so that they can truly be installed without anything but a household hammer.
Things to Look for in Your Supplies:
- Hardware – 1 zipper, 1 tack button, and 4 rivets are required to make your jeans. It can be challenging to find all of these hardware pieces in one place, so shop from our hardware kits to save both time and shipping costs.
Stretch Denim + Twill By The Yard
We have scoured the planet (literally) to bring you only the best quality fabrics. Textiles are a passion of ours and as such, we couldn’t sell you anything less. Whether you’re buying some fabric separately for one of our patterns or sourcing some to fit someone else’s, we want to be sure you have what you need! Use the bundle listing to grab some hardware and denim at a discounted rate.
Things to Look for in Your Fabrics:
- Stretch Percentage – This is the amount that you can stretch your fabric, NOT the percentage of elastic or spandex in your fabric. So if you have 4″ of fabric and it can stretch out to 6″, that fabric has 50% stretch. Likewise, if it can stretch to 5″ you have 25% stretch. When you are shopping for denim to make your own jeans, look for a minimum of 30% horizontal stretch (2-way). 25% CAN work but the comfort level just isn’t as great as 30% for fitted women’s jeans.
- Recovery – Sometimes your fabric may have the right amount of stretch but it doesn’t “bounce back” very well. This is your fabric’s recovery. You will want a strong recovery to your fabric to avoid sagging cabooses and legs as they are being worn.
