    We all know how good it feels when you find that perfect fitting pair of trousers - but how about creating your own personal pattern block that you can use over and over again to be adapted into more trouser styles?

    Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, you’ll find like-minded classmates; expert tutors and all the fabrics, trims, patterns and sewing tools you could wish for (plus sewing machines and overlockers for those wishing to invest heavier)!

    To start with, expert tutor Alison Leese, will teach you the skills behind measuring your shape correctly and then how to calculate the formulas to use flat pattern cutting to draft a basic trouser block (the starting tool for creating your own patterns) tailored to your body shape. You’ll then sew up a ‘toile’ - a simple test trouser from calico - to check your pattern fit.

    Move onto adapting your basic block to make a complete pattern for either a loose or fitted pair of trousers, adding seam allowances and all the necessary markings.

    Armed with a pattern to make a perfectly fitting pair of trousers, consider attending our PYJAMA LOUNGE OR CAPRI TROUSERS workshop to put your pattern to use.

    As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops. Some knowledge of sewing patterns would be an added bonus but not essential.

    Ministry of Craft customers get 10% discount on the wide range of fabrics, haberdashery and sewing patterns at Bamber Sewing Machines and there are various discounts available on their sewing machines and overlockers. Discount codes and other offers from our other crafty friends will be emailed with your booking confirmation.
