About this workshop

So what are you waiting for? If you are new to sewing trousers, and want some guidance to help you to extend your me-made wardrobe into trousers...then look no further than this class.

This is a great workshop for trying a fly front for the first time! Once you've made your first pair in the class, make another pair at home. This versatile pattern allows you to and pick and mix the back pocket welts, slashed opening front hip pockets and belt loops to make the project more or less detailed to your preference.
