Ultimate trousers

We thought it was about time we offered a class in trouser making. Trousers are simple to make when you know how, what is so important is that they fit. On this course you will decide on the style of your trousers, whether they will be high-waisted or low cut, straight legged, capri (as in photo) or boot legged.

Learn how to draft your own facings, check the fit of the trousers & adjust the pattern accordingly and insert a concealed zip. 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. You will also need a 9 inch concealed zip.

We have the perfect fabric available on our online shop

Patttern 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.
