The Daphne Trouser workshop is a solid introduction to trouser making for any beginner or intermediate sewer.

You will learn how to make a simple but beautiful pair of trousers with a zip fly and inside binding finishing. Starting your trouser making journey here will give you the best possible start for making designer quality trousers that will last years of wear and tear.

Format: Pre-recorded tutorial - 1 hour 13 minutes. You can watch it in your own time as many times as you want.

Level: Beginner & Intermediate 

    What you'll learn:

    The key to long lasting garments is a high quality of make and this workshop will provide plenty of tips that you can take forward in your sewing journey. This workshop will take intermediate sewers through the process of a tricky and detailed zip fly construction complete with decorative binding. You will also learn how to sew waistband, patch pockets and overlocked flat seam with topstitching. These skills will be transferable to any garment you sew, in particular all future pairs of trousers. 

    Chapters:

    1. Back Darts
    2. Patch Pockets
    3. Closing the Side Seam
    4. Closing the Inside Leg
    5. Preparing the Fly Pieces
    6. Sewing the Zip Fly - Part 1
    7. Sewing the Zip Fly - Part 2
    8. Closing the Crotch
    9. Finishing the Fly
    10. The Waistband
    11. Hem/Ankle Cuff
    12. Button & Button Hole

          Construction techniques: Zip fly construction with flat binding finishing, one-piece waistband, flat felled seam, patch pockets & ankle cuff construction or hem. 

          Suitable fabrics: The Daphne Trouser works very well in structured heavy to mid weight twills, drills, denims and canvas fabrics. Tougher fabrics will give you a closer fit to the body (although before starting check you can easily sew through 5 layers of the fabric) and lighter twills and denims are lovely in the summer as the lighter weight fabrics will give you a slightly looser fit.

          Fabric requirements: Our lay-plans are always done on a single layer of fabric to reduce wastage. 

          Fabric width 150cm | Sizes 4 - 12 = 180cm | Sizes 14 - 20 = 240cm | Sizes 22 -  28 = 250cm

          Fabric width 110cm | Sizes 4 - 12 = 230cm | Sizes 14 - 20 = 270cm | Sizes 22 - 28 = 290cm

          Materials list: Self fabric, a small length of bias binding binding (optional), 18-20cm zip, 1 x button (around 2.5-3cm), thread, about 20cm of good quality fusing

          Pages to print: Instructions - 18, A4/US Letter - 36, A0 - 2
