What you will do

3 hour class

Daytime

Make your own trousers from scratch. We'll show to how you can adjust a simple pattern to make them the perfect style for you, super wide or straighter leg, culottes or long trousers. If you're a bit more of an experienced sewer you may have time to add your own tie belt or pockets or frills!

This workshop is all about showing you that when you sew you can do things your own way. You don't have to stick to the rules and make the pattern exactly how it's given to you, you can create things to your own taste really easily.

I left the class with a pair of trousers which I am now using as my new pj bottoms. I would recommend the class if you want a one off experience sewing. For people who have sewn before or looking to learn I wouldn't recommend it as a it as there wasn't much teaching. The sustainable ethos is great and the teacher herself nice although I felt she was constantly checking her phone to see the time.

Jaime and Tracey helped me to make trousers from scratch, even though I have very little sewing experience. They were incredibly kind and supportive. My trousers are amazing. I had the idea to add a ruffled hem and they new exactly how to achieve the look I wanted right away! I had to come back and make another pair of trousers, this time with pockets and a flat-fronted waist. I am so happy with my fantastic new clothes, but the experience of making them was lovely as well. The studio is very relaxing as it is in a garden with big windows. I even got given a piece of homemade cake, which was delicious. Thank you Tracey and Jaime for everything! I will be back (again) to make a blouse next!

Wide Leg Trouser Making Workshop by Make Mee Studio - crafts in London

About your host, Make Mee Studio

Make Mee Studio is run by Tracey & Jaime. Two enthusiastic lifelong sewers (both sewing since they were 5 years old!) They love sharing their making skills with others, and have over 10 years of combined teaching experience working with adults and children. They offer sewing lessons, parties, alterations, makes and commissions in their Brockley, South East London based garden studio and are also available for external school and community projects.

Tracey is a very experienced seamstress who has been working in the business for over 18 years, she started as a costume assistant working for Grenada and the BBC going on to run her own bespoke label and then she began teaching 6 years ago and fell in love. She one of the most precise sewers you'll ever meet and always has a handy hint or trick up her sleeve. She loves keeping the studio neat, tidy and organised, everything has a place!

Jaime primarily studied Textile Design gaining a Masters from Chelsea College of Art. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and textiles, she began teaching as an antidote to the endless cycle of fast fashion. Teaching people how to make and sew and fix and mend themselves can have a huge impact on how they consume and how they feel about their clothing. She is a self-taught dressmaker and loves encouraging people to make things unique, she's a magpie for anything, velvet, fluffy or sparkly and is terrible at keeping to Tracey's organised system!

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey & Jaime using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
