Learn to make trousers!
In this class, garment maker extrodinaire, Beth Galvin, will teach you all the techniques you need to be able to make amazing trousers. Rather than focus on only one pattern, she will share the tips and tricks needed to make just about any trouser pattern.
Beth will cover how to:
- mark and sew pleats
- make slant front pockets
- create a fly zipper
- back welt pockets
- match plaids
- line pants
In addition, she will discuss various styles of waistbands, interfacing waistbands, and seam finishes. This is not a fitting class but she will discuss choosing your size and a few other fit tips.
There are lots of great patterns out there. Don't worry, Beth will cover pattern and fabric selection in the first class to help you choose your favorite. Because this class focuses on techniques rather than being a sew-along following a specific pattern, you will learn all the skills regardless of what pattern you select!
A few options to consider:
- Tatjana Trousers from Just-Patterns
- Merriam Trousers from Cashmerette
- Closet Core Mitchell Trousers
- Billy Trousers from Bella Loves Patterns
Each week Beth will walk you through new topics and skills needed to make trousers, sharing her expertise and answering all of your questions. One of the great things about this online class is that you can choose whether you want to sew along that week's techniques, or if you just want to watch class and sew when it's convenient for you. You have video available to refresh your memory when you want to tackle that part of the project.
