Jump into sewing in the new year by learning how to construct pants! Pants No. 1 by 100 Acts of Sewing is THE perfect pattern for learning how to sew a simple and casual pant. Just say no to sweatpants! Pants No. 1 are an updated staple for your work-from-home wardrobe. They go from home office to around the town errands effortlessly. Made in a linen or linen blend fabric, they have an easy-breezy casual look. Or, you can make them in flannel for a cozy pj or lounge pant! Either way, teacher Kristen will have you sewing with confidence by the end of class.

In this class you will learn how to:

  • Read & understand sewing pattern and instructions
  • Make length adjustments to your pattern pieces
  • Layout and cut pattern pieces from your fabric
  • Create an elastic waistband
  • Sew a smooth even hemline

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You have a few projects under your belt. You aready know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to learn more advanced basics.
