There's nothing quite like making your very own pants, but they can be intimidating for some, especially when it comes to getting the right fit. Have no fear, because in this pants making class, we will be focusing on achieving the proper fit before you even cut out your fabric! 
In this intermediate class, taught by Nikki from Atlatna Sewing Style, we'll make the Closet Core Mitchell Trousers - size 0-32, VIEW B. Class will be begin on Wednesday March 20th, 6-8pm PM and continue Saturday and Sunday 11:00-3:00 PM. There might be some homework in between but most of the sewing will be done in class. 

The first evening will be focused on choosing your size and preparing your pattern to trace and cut the pattern and your fabrics so that you are able to get a great fit before ever cutting into your materials. For homework, you'll cut out your fabric based on your size and any fitting modifications to your pattern. Then, you'll spend Saturday and Sunday 11-3pm sewing up a great pair of pants. 

Skills you will learn:
• Techniques to get the fit right
• Pattern modifications based on fitting techniques
• Sewing darts
• How to sew a waistband facing
• Welt pockets
• Learn how to sew a zip fly front
• Sewing a buttonhole or hook and bar closure

Skills expected:
This is an intermediate class. Please be sure you have the equivalent amount of experience up to an intermediate level. If you've sewn a few advanced beginner garments, including PJ pants or other beginner pants, you should be good to go. 

Materials: You can either choose to purchase your own fabric or we will have a small selection of twill or denim to choose from. You'll need fabric yardage based on your sizing.

Check the size chart here. We will be making view B in class. Fabrics that are good for this pattern are: For a structured look, use sturdy woven fabrics like light to midweight denim, twill and canvas, and midweight linen, cotton, and wool suiting. For a softer effect, choose midweight fabrics with drape, such as tencel twill, wool crepe.

Materials provided: The Closet Core pattern, zipper, button or hook and bar, D-rings, a sewing machine, thread, fabric shears, pins, marking tools, measuring tape and an iron.

We will have snacks and drinks but feel free to pack a lunch as well because the weekend classes span over lunch time.

*You'll receive the pattern at the first class on Thursday night unless you just want to pick it up early to review it! Please just let us know your size range or hip / waist measurement so we can have the correct version of the pattern ready for you.
