Description

Sewing pants can be quite a struggle for any sewer. Rarely do they fit on the first try and it’s easy to give up before you have even started. Wrinkles, pulling lines, too tight in one spot, too loose in another… Where to begin? And what about all those other sewing details? Can a fly front zipper ever become your friend (the answer is “yes!”).

It might be hard to know what fitting issues to tackle first and what all the different wrinkles on your muslin mean but with the right method, fitting pants is not as hard as you might think. A pair of pants are not complete without perfecting those other details such as fly front zippers, back welt pockets and a perfect hem.

This power session will show you how to make a pair of pants fit you perfectly. I will explain crotch length and depth, derrière adjustments and show you how to adjust back curves and waistlines. I will also show you step-by-step how to perfect a fly front zipper and add other details such as welt back pockets and invisible and cuffed hems. You will never be afraid of sewing pants ever again!
