halfmoon 101 JEANS | Sew Along HOME

halfmoon 101 JEANS

This is a temporary blog post that I will keep up for the duration of the halfmoon 101 JEANS Sew Along. Once we've complete our jeans, this post will go away, but all the posts with photos and information will remain and can always be found here on the blog. This post is simply to let you know when you can expect the blog posts to be published, and also to let you know when you can find me "live" on Instagram/IGTV. 

**Please note that dates are subject to change! I want this Sew Along to be as responsive to your questions and needs as possible. Because of that, the Sew Along may take a bit more time. Updates will be posted here.

Blog posts that were published before the start of the Sew Along can be found here:
