What happens in this class?

The perfect fitting pair of trousers can be an enigma to many of us, but how can we expect shops or patterns to fit everyone when all our bodies are all so different? With this pattern cutting class you will create a trouser block that fits you and only you and you can use it to make perfectly fitting trousers every time!

What you'll learn

  • We'll show you how to accurately measure your waist, hips and legs and we will use the measurements to make a trouser pattern block to fit your exact body shape.

I was a bit scared to make trousers so I decided to take this class, and now I feel much more confident! Jamie help us measure ourselves and then transfer these to paper to make a trouser block. We then sewed it up and made adjustments as necessary. It's so much better to have someone with a trained eye (Jamie) to look at where the block needs adjusting. I really enjoyed the class and I feel so much more encouraged that trousers shouldn't be so scary to make!

Really fun, laid back class. I came away with a well fitting pair of trousers but did feel that an extra hour would be helpful to properly discuss fitting issues and next steps with the toile/block

I had such a good day! The class was intimate and relaxed and Jaime was a friendly and super knowledgeable teacher. Whilst being a bit of a learning curve for me ( I'd never made my own pattern or toile before) I was chuffed to bits to have completed my first pair of trousers in a day! I've definitely learnt lots of top tips from Make Mee and the other students and feel I can totally have a go on my own now. Top banana!
