What you will do
7 hour workshop
This intensive one-day class is designed for students who know how to sew, but want to learn how to make trousers that fit beautifully. Working with the trousers pattern of your choice (for woven fabrics only), our experienced instructor will teach you tips and techniques for taking accurate measurements, making a muslin, evaluating fit, basic pattern adjustments (such as blending between sizes, identifying and fixing drag lines, making full tummy and/or flat seat adjustments) and altering your pattern. You'll leave class with a finished muslin and a corrected pattern so you can make the trousers of your dreams at home!
Students are welcome to bring two patterns to class - depending on your personal pace you may be able to start the fitting process on a second pattern.
