Learn the basics for making your own fitting trousers
The Easy Patternmaking Kit - Trouser Drafting Course teaches you how to construct a beautiful pair of trousers.
In this course, you learn to draft a pattern for a pair of trousers along wit belt and zipper attachments, using fitting measurements, and quality techniques. We begin with organizing your pattern paper with accurate measurements laid out properly. You will then learn to calculate the circumference measurements, the darts, and allowances for a quality fit. Finally we will draft accurate lines to match quality measurements for a fitting trouser design.
The next part of this course is to draft the zipper fly and shield, as well as the belt. These will be drafting to match and then cut out. These patterns are made using your measurements and will be ready to sew.
