Have you ever found the perfect pair of trouser or jeans – ones that fit you just right, and that had all the details you wanted?  And you’ve wished that you’d bought a dozen pairs, because finding trousers that fit is such a struggle.

In this class you’ll learn how to take a pattern from your favourite trousers or jeans: one that replicates both the fit, and the details, so that you can make as many pairs of them as you want.

The class will work through the process of taking a pattern, checking it for fit and accuracy with a toile, creating a finished master pattern from the fitted toile, and choosing a fabric that will best suit the trouser style and replicate the look and feel of the original.

Time permitting, we’ll also be able to begin sewing a finished pair, and will work through the trickier points of trouser construction together.  Depending on your skill level, and the amount of cutting and sewing you do outside of class, you may get your trousers finished within the four weeks.  If not, there may be an opportunity to finish the trousers in a follow-up class.

While this class focuses on trousers and shorts, all the skills taught in can be used to take patterns from other garments as well.

This class is suitable for those with advanced-intermediate and higher sewing experience.  Students should be competent independent sewers who are comfortable sewing front zip plackets, slant or side seam pockets, and other trouser details on their own.

Cost: $135 (includes pattern tissue and calico for a toile)

Materials: Students will need to provide their own thread, and materials for the finished trousers.

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.
