New course: design and make your own trousers! This means you will not only assemble the piece, but you will also create your own pattern in your own design. We will start with a basic pattern in your own size and we will make alterations to the pattern to turn it into the pants of your wishes. For example, add pleats, pockets, closure and change the shape of the leg (flared, straight, narrow). Learn the basics of pattern alterations and sewing techniques that fit your pants. Professional pattern maker & fashion designer Ayla van Maarschalkerweerd will be your teacher.
Lesson 1: design & draw your own pattern
Lesson 2: cut your fabric and overlock edges
Lesson 3: work on the pockets (and darts/pleats if needed)
Lesson 4: create the fly and add zipper
Lesson 5: merge all panels
Lesson 6: waistband and finishings
In the first lesson you will get a basic pattern in your own size, which you can use to create your own pattern. You can also take this basic pattern home, so in the future it is also possible to create different styles of pants with this basic pattern. Materials (fabrics, interfacing, buttons, zippers) are not included in the course, so you can also choose your own style. In the first lesson Ayla will discuss your plans with you and you can see together how much materials you need for the second lesson.
*If you miss one lesson, you can catch up in the Sewing Cafe, on the day/time of your preference.
