Let's meet the patterns!

Nina Trousers

The Nina Trousers are a beautifully classic pair of wide legged trousers.

With their high, fitted waist they have a slight vintage feel, but made in a bold, swishy fabric they are equally on-trend and contemporary. Whether you're working hard at the office, or relaxing on a summery city break, the Nina Trousers are versatile, fun to style and a true wardrobe workhorse.

Designed to sit on the natural waist, the Nina Trousers feature a straight waistband with a zip fly opening. The waist is shaped with pleats at the front, and double darts at the back.

They have in-seam pockets and optional welt pockets at the back, plus belt loops along the waistband. The legs fall from the hip for a lovely wide, floaty feel.

Cigarette Pants

Inspired by the iconic wardrobe of Audrey Hepburn, the Cigarette Pants are a chic, sleek pair of trousers. Perfect for the office, they are smart and sophisticated, looking great paired with your collection of handmade blouses or breton tops.

The Cigarette Pants feature a zip fly, with a flat front and slanted pockets, plus optional welt pockets at the back. Sitting on the high hip, they have a curved waistband and are fitted at the back with darts. The leg is gently tapered, finishing at the ankle for that classic Audrey Hepburn look.

What will you learn?

From identifying the right fabric for your project, measuring for your body, sewing a zip fly and welt pockets, fitting and loads more, this course covers everything you need to take your trouser-making skills up a level or two.
