Discover the secrets to achieving superior pant fit by using a combination of flat pattern and draping techniques in this 3-hour intermediate level workshop.  Learn how and where to measure the body and pattern, how to make adjustments to the pattern and how to tissue fit any style of pants.  Choose any pants pattern and get a perfect fit.  Be prepared to be measured and to try on the tissue pattern in class.  You will leave with a pants pattern ready to cut and sew.

Instructor:  Marla Kazell

Tools provided for use during class:

Paper scissors


Measuring tape

Seam gauge or 6 ruler

 Pen or pencil

Please bring or purchase these items:

Pants pattern of your choice

Marla recommends Burda patterns for their superior drafting, but you may use any pattern.  Patterns printed on heavy paper will need to be traced onto tissue paper.  Pattern should include the size that fits your fullest measurement below the waist - tummy, hips or thighs.
