Workshop Notes - Trouser Making

What you'll learn:

Across the two trouser workshops you'll learn how to do 2 different fly fastenings: a zip fly and a concealed button fly, both of which are finished with internal binding. You will learn how to sew other trouser construction areas including closing the crotch, waistbands (a 3-piece waistband and a 1-piece waistband), belt loops, front pockets with facings, patch pockets, flat felled seams, topstitching details and buttons & button holes.

These skills will be transferable to any garment you sew, in particular all future pairs of trousers. 

The process:

To start the series we recommend starting with the Daphne Trouser and watching the guided tutorial for this style. Once you've made this piece you'll be able to build on these skills in the Worker Trouser workshop.

Once you've completed both of these workshops you'll have all the knowledge needed to make the Spring Trousers by following the PDF instructions.
