Teen-Style Pleated-Front Trousers
This on-trend, relaxed fit trouser style works in every teen's wardrobe; make them in a stylish cotton print and wear them every day until the end of the summer and beyond. Choose from tapered or balloon leg shapes (tapered leg shown left).
This intermediate level workshop is ideal for those already confident to use a sewing machine and who have previously made at least one beginners+ clothing project. You will learn how to prepare your fabric, pin and cut out these gorgeous full-length, relaxed-fit trousers, which have front pleats, generous pockets, an elasticated casing for the waist and either a balloon leg with turned up hems or tapered leg with ruched side-hem details, 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 overlocker.
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:

Equipment, elastic, threads and light refreshments are all provided. Feel free to bring your own sewing machine (please ensure it's in good working order and you are able to thread it yourself). Please bring a packed lunch - weather permitting we'll be eating in the garden. Please wear a face mask and bring slippers/soft indoor shoes/grippy socks to wear.
*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.
