This full weekend workshop, which is ran from Just Sew Penrith, is designed for those that are wanting to expand on their dressmaking skills and master all the skills involved for sewing your own trousers!
This workshop will cover a wide range of skills including:

Size range for the trouser pattern is approximately a UK 6 through to UK 34. If you would like a break down of the sizings before booking, please contact us.
There are lots of variations that you can sew, from different leg cuts, different lengths (shorts, 3/4's or full length) as well as choosing between a traditional woven design, or sew up your own super comfy jogging bottoms! Even after the workshop, you will be able to put your skills to practice at home, with all of these options available.
You do need to have some sewing machine experience for this course and also have had some experience of sewing up some dressmaking garments, though not necessarily trousers!
