Two Day Trouser Making Masterclass
Come and join us at The Makers' Space, Longbarn Village, Alcester Heath, Alcester, BN49 5JJ to make a pair of trousers of your choice, whether that is the Hero, Portia, Nell or Ariel. While relatively easy to make up, trousers can be tricky to fit on your own. So we have split this workshop into two parts.
We will help you to fit the trousers 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 your pattern out in your chosen fabric.
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 waistband
- How to sew a fly zip with a facing
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, matching zip for your own Portia Trousers and some lunch.
There will also be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep you sewing!
