Learn how to get the fit right on tricky trousers! Bring along your own chosen pattern, a prepared toile and your final fabrics, pockets, linings, zips etc. Learn how to transfer fitting adjustments from your pattern and get the fit right before embarking on the final garment.

Take home lots of samples on the day, a perfect fitting toile and perhaps the final fab trousers too if you are fast! Expertise help and advice from a very experienced teacher of dressmaking on the day, Gill McBride, in this small class of six.
