Making trousers is a technical process requiring precision, care and attention to detail. It's our opinion that trousers are just about the most useful garments you can make so it's a wonderful skill to be able to sew them to a high quality.

This mini series will take you through the process of making trousers and enable you to make 3 different pairs using professional sewing techniques. 

What is included:

  • Lifetime access to our online Daphne Trouser & Worker Trouser Workshop
  • 3 x PDF Patterns ( A4, A0 & US Letter) for the Daphne Trousers, Worker Trousers and Spring Trousers (sizes 6-20 are available for this series)
  • These will all be sent to you via email after purchasing

What you'll learn:

Both of the pre-recorded online workshops will help you to elevate your sewing skills and improve your confidence. You will learn how to sew waistband & belt loops, smart front pockets, patch pockets and overlocked flat seam with topstitching. You'll also be shown how to do 2 different fly fastenings: a zip fly and a concealed button fly, both of which are finished with internal binding.These skills will be transferable to any garment you sew, in particular all future pairs of trousers. This is a great option for anyone looking to diversify their skills and learn how to make 3 pairs of good, long lasting 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.

Level: Intermediate sewers (if you're a beginner please see our Cara Top or Frida Shirt Workshops)

Materials & Sizing: For materials lists and sizing specifics please check the product page for each individual style.

    You will receive both an A4, A0 & US Letter size digital pattern along with step by step sewing instructions. You can either print your pattern at home on an A4 printer or send the A0 digital copy to a printing shop (there are many that do this for a very reasonable price). If you decide to print in A4 you will need to piece the tiles together to make one huge page. There is a guide on how to do this included in the instructions.
