Three Little Birds Sewing Co
Emerson Pants or Shorts Class -- Advanced Beginner Garment Making
The Emerson pattern is a pull-on crop pant or short with an elasticized back and flattering front waistband. Views A and B have a mid rise that sits just below the natural waist. Views C and D have a high rise that sits over the belly button. All views have front pleats and side pockets. Views A and C are a cropped, wide leg pant, hitting a couple of inches above the ankle. Views B and D are a short with an approximate 4 inch inseam.
If you've been interested in learning to make pants, these are a great starting point -- no need for a zipper, buttons, and they're made with lots of ease. This class is appropriate for students who feel comfortable using a machine on their own and know about seam allowances. We will cover pattern reading, measuring, and cutting in this class.
Class meets for 3 two-hour sessions with additional studio time, if needed. The 2nd & 3rd class sessions TBD at first class.
What you'll need:
- Emerson Pant Pattern by True Bias
- 1.5-3 yards of fabric, depending on size and view making
