Take your trouser making to the next level with our Cigarette Pants. Based on a classic design to suit all styles and figure shapes, these trousers will make your trouser collection complete.
Learn how to construct trousers with a fly, add pockets, waistband and most importantly fit them to your figure. You will leave with a pattern that fits you so you can make as many as you like.
As fitting trousers is a tricky business we recommend that you don’t make your first pair out of your favourite fabric. We will be fitting along the construction process but sometimes your second pair will be more perfect than your first.
Tea and treats will be provided to help the sewing process along!
- Can carry out all dressmaking skills mentioned in previous levels to a high level
- Can sew and cut trickier fabrics independently and at a good pace
- Some experience in fitting and pattern alterations
- Want to learn more complicated construction skills such as working with lace, and tailoring
