I want you to get the jeans of your dreams. In order to do that, spend some time contemplating what works you and what will fit best into your lifestyle.
Step 1 | We meet, talk jeans
The first step towards strutting your stuff in dream denim begins with your consultation. What do you wear now? What works? What doesn’t work? What do you want your dream jeans to be? Do you have a favorite pair of jeans that work?
Show me pictures of what you want your jeans to looks like, I want to get to know you and fully understand your vision for your new jeans.
Step 2 | Yes, this is where the tape comes out
Online and in person, I will take precision measurements based on your body type and the type of jeans you want made. I also use photography to help me understand the balance of your customized measurements. I want to know if you have curvy hips or a buxom bottom, a long torso or a short calf so your jeans fit right not tight!
It’s all strictly confidential and I do all the work, making it simple and easy for you to enjoy the journey. Check out these easy, step by step instructions for measurements and pictures. I’ve got your back … and front … every step of the way.
Step 3 | Ohhhh the choices!
This is the REALLY fun part. What’s your favorite rise? Which leg style works best? And which denim would you like? What color thread? And pocketing? Zipper or button up? How about hardware? And leather patch? Design your jeans from scratch or pick one of my tried and true classic combinations.
Not sure how to answer those q’s? As your personal denim expert, I would be delighted to collaborate on your design.
Step 4 | Sample tryouts
You will receive a sample garment to try on. It’s a simple side-zip cotton pant what will give us an idea of the general fit and fidelity of the pattern created. In the fitting I will evaluate both style and fit of the sample and note any changes that need to be made.
As an expert I know all the spots to check. You can point out any issues or changes you would like to be made before your final jeans are cut.
Step 5 | Now I get to cutting and sewing
This is where I give your jeans my undivided attention over the whole day. It takes me about 2 hours to cut and interface your fabric and about 8 hours to sew a pair of jeans. I take great pride in my workmanship and put great care to quality and finishing. Before shipment, your jeans are thoroughly inspected and packaged safely into a bag for shipping.
The whole process of perfect made to measure jeans takes about 30 hours of work.
There are no shortcuts to a perfect pair. From your consultation to measurements and the perfect pattern to fitting, alterations, production and your fit guarantee, you have purchased the best fitting jeans on the planet.
If you are not perfectly happy with your jeans, I want to know!
Rest assured that each and every pair of dogwoods is covered by a fit guarantee. I want you to be 100% satisfied with your one-of-a-kind pair of jeans. If you receive your jeans and you aren’t fully happy with the fit, let me know and I will make follow-up alterations.
