WIDE-LEG TROUSERS   
           

These flattering, easy to make and on-trend wide-leg trousers look great in summer weight cotton print fabrics, lightweight denim or chambray, and striped linens. Worn casually with trainers or dressed up with sparkly sandals these can can be made full length (as shown) or cropped to ankle-grazing length. 

 

This workshop is ideal for all skill levels from Beginners+ who have recently learned to use a sewing machine and are looking for a first clothing project.   You will learn how to prepare your fabric, pin and cut out these fabulous trousers, which have a gently elasticated waist and side seam pockets using an exclusive FASHIONSKOOL paper pattern provided in your chosen size. You will pick up lots of great sewing tips whilst joining the pieces together using a sewing machine and finishing seams neatly with the opportunity of using an over-locker.

 

Please refer to the sizing notes below to choose your size and state your requirement when booking so that a pattern can be prepared for you:

 

Children's Sizes: age 10-11, age 11-12.  Teen's :  4, 6, 8, 10, 12. 

 

SIZING: The difference between 'Teen' sizing and children's sizing is in the cut of the pattern; sizes are based on UK women's sizing but adapted for a slightly less 'full' figure. Styles have proportionate darts where appropriate, shaped waist and hips, and longer body, arm and leg lengths than for equivalent children's sizes. For example, the Teen's size 10 is most comparable to a women's dress size 10 and children's age 16 clothing size, further sizing advice given on request.

 

 

For this workshop you will need to provide 100% cotton fabric in a 2-way print; (for 1-way prints add 25 cm length). Please avoid large repeats, obvious checks or horizontal stripes that will need matching and slippery polyester type fabrics.
