Description

In the Capri Pants workshop you will make a classic pair of cigarette style pants over eight hours. 


With only 4 pattern pieces, this is a great choice to make if you have made one other simple item like an A line skirt.  You will learn how to sew in a lapped zip, and finish the waist with a self faced yoke at the waist - perfect to tackle with a teacher's support. You will learn to use a regular zipper foot and finish seams with an overlocker.

Despite sewing for many years, pants have always been my nemesis; I have never been able to get the correct size. The pattern for these pants was excellent as it was easy to fit and make adjustments too. I left the class with a pair of pants that fitted and a pattern that I can use many times over.
