hello, i am in the process of making clothes for my character. does anyone know how i can make some jeans? i have cut up an old pair of my jeans but i can not get it to stop fraying when i sew pieces together. obviously i am trying to make the seam as small as possible so i don't want to sew too deep into the denim sections. is there a trick to sewing denim?

Every fabric store carries denim. Shirting denim would be best because it is a lot thinner. I cant imagine regular denim looking right. Here in LA I can name five places off the top of my head that sell it. Nationally, Joann's fabrics has it.
