Making pants presents a special challenge. Of all garments, they demand the most perfect fit and are often the hardest to fit because there are so many different body shapes.
Not to worry, though. In our pants sloper class, your measurements will be taken and then used to complete a classic, custom fit pattern for you, known as a sloper. No previous class is required.
Once your classic style pants pattern is perfected in muslin, you can adapt it and create a wide variety of pant styles, always ensuring a perfect fit.
The pant sloper class consists of three sessions which are three hours long.
During this class you will:
Learn the measurement system used to draft your patterns
Have your measurements taken
Draft the basic pants pattern using your measurements
Cut and sew the pants in muslin
Make fitting corrections to the muslin and transfer them back to your sloper pattern
Complete your final fitting of muslin
Learn pants style variations:
• Pedal pushers, capris
• boot cut, straight leg
Classes are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10:00 am-1 pm and 1:30 pm-4:30 pm.
Note: Please bring your measurement chart if you have taken the Basic Bodice Sloper class so that additional measurements may be taken and recorded.
