This course is a must for anyone who is keen to flex thier dressmaking wings. During the day we will use a simple pattern to produce a pair of smart or casual summer trousers (options for pockets are included in the pattern). During the morning we will go through how to check your measurements against the pattern and choose the correct size, how and where to make any necessary alterations to the pattern, and how to accurately cut your pattern pieces. After lunch you will piece together, sew and finish your trousers to take home with you.
Included in the price is a pattern which we will adjust and size so you can create your trousers on the day and use your new found skills and confidence to make more or add final touches at home. You will need to bring 3m of your chosen trouser fabric, matching thread and 3m of 2.5cm elastic with you, cotton, cotton viscose, linens and linen viscose mixes are fine for these trousers, if you need any advice at all then please get in touch and I'll be happy to help you.
