The BIG list of where to buy jeans making supplies!

The Big list of Jeans making supplies

We know it can be a little daunting to try and find a great stretch denim for making your jeans – not to mention all the other notions that go along with them! So to make your life that bit easier we got together with some of our amazing stockists, and put together a big list of stores where you can buy stretch denim and jeans notions like buttons, rivets and zippers.

Some of these stores have been kind enough to offer a discount to anyone sewing up the Ash jeans!

Stick with me :) This store will not have the best quality stretch denim you can find, but there are a few gems if you hunt. The prices are cheap so this denim is good for making muslins. Just be sure to check your stretch percentage!
