Ultimate trousers

Sew Over It Ultimate Trousers class

Made a few dresses but scared of attempting trousers? Then the Ultimate Trousers course is for you. Trousers are simple to make when you know how, but what is so important is that they fit. Our expert teachers will not only help you sew up your trousers but they will help you fit them along the way. This is how the course is broken down:

Session one: try on our toiles and consult with the teacher on the best fit, make alterations to the pattern, pin and cut out the fabric, finish the edges with an overlocker, sew the darts and the trousers and check the fit, make further alterations to the pattern and trousers.

Session two: insert a regular zip, attach a waist facing, learn how to understitch, hem your trousers.

You will have the option to change the height of the waistband and the fit of the leg (straight, tapered or slightly flared). We will make sure that the pattern you leave with will make perfect trousers, but you may find that the second pair you make is more accurate fit-wise than the first so don’t bring your best fabric for the class.

Your sewing level

You need to have made a couple of things already before taking this course, like the Intro to dressmaking and the Ultimate shift dress.

Cake and tea will be provided to help the sewing process along!

Level: 5

Class length: Two 3 hour sessions

Materials required: You will need 2m of woven fabric. You can use anything from cotton to corduroy, wool crepe to denim as long as it isn’t too heavy or too light. Fabrics with a tiny bit (3%) of stretch will give you a better fit. You will also need a 9 inch concealed zip.

We have the perfect fabric available on our online shop

Pattern sizes: 8-20. If you are outside or may be bordering on this range of sizes, please contact us a week before the class as we will need to grade a pattern especially for you. If it is just one size up or down, we will do this free of charge, but if it is more then there may be a small fee.
