While we have based this course on our Hero Trouser pattern, you can bring along any trouser pattern you'd like to make up. 

However, the Hero Trousers are an easy pair of of slim trousers to make up and the pattern can be included in the cost of the course. They look great with all shapes of tops and shirts including our very own Peaseblossom and Imogen. 

But while trousers can be pretty straightforward to make up, they can be tricky to fit on your own. So we have split this workshop into two parts. 

Part One - we will help you to fit the trouser pattern to flatter your own shape and figure showing you where and how to make any pattern alterations. The fit will be tested in a calico toile and perfected before cutting out your trousers in your chosen fabric.

Part Two - After perfecting the pattern and fit we will show you how to make them up. 
You will learn:
How to sew darts to the curve of your body
How to sew a curved waistband
How to sew a concealed zip with a facing 
How to sew jetted pockets

So you will leave with both the trouser pattern to fit and the confidence to make them.

The pattern, calico and notions for the toile are all included in the workshop. All you need to bring with you are the fabric and matching zip for your own Hero Trousers.

There will be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep you sewing but you may wish to bring some lunch with you or pay a visit to one of the many cafes in Stratford upon Avon.

A really good weekend. I have never made trousers because of not getting a good fit. It was so interesting watching Jules demonstrate clearly how to do pattern adjustments. I think we all felt a real sense of accomplishment when we each had a toile that fitted nicely. I made the trousers up at home - perfect fit! Now to make another few pairs in different fabrics. Thank you Jules. Highly recommended and hugely enjoyed. Josie
