Pattern Cutting: Make a Trouser Block & Toile

18 Jan 20 — 18 Jan 20
Venue: Make Mee Studio
The perfect fitting pair of trousers can be an enigma to many of us, but how can we expect shops or patterns to fit everyone when all our bodies are all so different? With this pattern cutting class you will create a trouser block that fits you and only you and you can use it to make perfectly fitting trousers every time!

What you'll learn

- We'll show you how to accurately measure your waist, hips and legs and we will use the measurements to make a trouser pattern block to fit your exact body shape.

- You will make your first pattern from it adding seam allowances and markings.

- After lunch we will make a calico toile to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to your block.

- We will discuss how to adjust your block to make different designs and how to use it to adjust the fit of commercial patterns.

Who is this class for?
This class is for those with some sewing experience, who want to make made to measure clothes. You will get the most out of it if you have used commercial patterns before and you are confident on a sewing machine.
