This is a great project for anyone who has started to sew but wants to take their skills to the next level by making first trousers and a jersey garment too in one day.
Our teacher will guide you through the patterns and help you to make the relevant adjustments such as grading or lengthening the pattern to make the Pyjamas fit you well. Learn how to make the simple t-shirt and learn a new skill in sewing with stretch fabric.
You could even make the set as a gift for your nearest and dearest!
Make Your Own Bodice Block
Make Your Own Trouser Block
Our Trouser Block Workshop is a fun and productive day aimed at those who have experience in sewing. You will be spending the day sewing with others in our studio space surrounded by beautiful fabrics, while learning and developing your skills.
During the Trouser Block workshop you will begin by taking a thorough set of measurements to then create a trouser block tailored to your body. This will eliminate the need to make fit adjustments to a pattern as you will have your own unique block to start from and create your own patterns.
We will sew a toile of your block after completing it to ensure it has the correct fit and talk through adjustments you can make to create your own patterns.
Experience: This workshop is aimed at those who have experience sewing and have a thorough understanding of how patterns are put together, especially trousers.
