This 4 week course is for sewists who want to explore garment construction through pant making. You choose the pants pattern and Tanya King will help you fit and sew!
Please read our Covid-19 Safety Measures before booking.
In this workshop you will learn:
- How to measure yourself for pants
- How to understand and fit pants patterns
- Marking, sewing darts, pleats and gathers
- Different types of waistbands and facings
- Zipper installation (regular or invisible)
- Hemming and finishing techniques
We have a diverse range of pant patterns available to suit many styles and body shapes We have a recommended list of patterns here but if you already own your dream pants pattern, please send us a link before the workshop just so we can make sure the pattern will suit your sewing level. We recommend choosing a style that you're likely to make more than once so that it's truly worth all of the work!!
*** Please note that sewing jeans is only an option for more experienced sewists and if you choose this option, you must have time to sew at home in-between classes as there will be some extra work involved! ***
If you need some help in choosing the right pattern, please don't hesitate to reach out by phone, email or come by the shop (with a mask please!!)
