Introduction to Pattern Drafting – The Trousers

The one garment everyone dreads making – or just a case of baggy drawers?
They are required to fit:-

  • flat bottoms
  • full rounded bottoms
  • tubby tummies
  • small thighs
  • large thighs

Well dread no more!

Come and learn the basic techniques of creating a trouser pattern just for you and your own individual figure.
You will make a block trouser pattern that is the foundation pattern constructed to fit you. Easy to follow step by step instructions will be given. Developing this further on the day to introduce style lines, tucks, and pleats.

The finished basic block pattern will be made up in a calico toile to check for proportions, shape and fit.
You will never need to buy another trouser pattern again using this method of pattern drafting – you will just have a trouser pattern that fits beautifully!

Further details on equipment will be given at the time of booking.
Duration: 1 day

Cost: £80 per day

  1. Will the trouser fitting course be running this year? I cannot find it on the course calendar. I know my daughter has been looking for a similar course,mand this would be a perfect gift for her. Harrogate would be perfect, as she will be moving back in June, but Leeds is do-able.

    • Hello Eileen yes the trouser pattern drafting course is still running on: 6 June, 14 July, 8 Aug (Harrogate) 1 Sept 8 Oct 14 Nov. the calendar can be found by just clicking on the website course calendar.
