Perfectly Fitted Trousers

March 12, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

Wednesdays 12, 19, 26 March,  9, 16 April 6-8:30pm (five sessions, no class 2 April)

Cost: $155 (includes patterning tissue for your block).

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.

Whether you call them trousers or pants, getting the fit just right can be a bit tricky.  In this course you’ll develop your own personal pants block, and then make the perfect fitted trousers from it.

In the first session, you’ll learn how to draft a custom block for your own pants.  Then, over the next week you’ll make a mock-up of your block for fitting.  In the 2nd session we’ll fit your mock up, and then you’ll sew your trousers in weeks 3-5.

Best of all, your pants block can be used to make a whole range of pant and short styles – each of which will fit you perfectly!  A student who took this course last time has made 5 pairs of trousers or shorts from her block since, and says it’s the only pants pattern she’ll ever need!

High Intermediate = Suitable for those with intermediate and higher sewing experience.  You should have made at least two pairs of pants/shorts/trousers on your own, or have taken the Wide Legged 1930s & 40s Trousers & Shorts class, to have some basic experience in trouser construction.

Materials:  Students should bring 2.5 metres of stunt fabric for mock-ups to the first class, and fabric for their final trousers to the following class.

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
