Sew The Season - Spring

Sew this season's trends during this one day workshop and start working on your spring wardrobe! Choose from two gorgeous patterns; the Tilly and the Buttons Marigold Trousers or the True Bias Emerson Pants.

The Marigold trousers are a relaxed peg-shape, easy to fit at the hip, with slash pockets for nonchalant slouching and a tapered, slim line ankle. The waist has gentle shaping from pleats and darts, cinched in with a quick-sew elasticated waistband.

The Emerson pattern is a pull-on crop pant or short with an elasticized back and flattering front waistband. Views A and B have a mid rise that sits just below the natural waist. Views C and D have a high rise that sits over the belly button. All views have front pleats and side pockets. Views A and C are a cropped, wide leg pant, hitting a couple of inches above the ankle. Views B and D are a short with an approximate 4 inch inseam.
