garment series: mitchell tailored pants

Ready for your next garment making class? Join us in the studio in March to learn how to make the Mitchell Trousers by Closet Core! These stylish pants are perfect for the upcoming Spring season!

Inspired by a genius songwriter with timeless style, Mitchell is a modern interpretation of a classic pleated trouser. Elegant and comfortable with very special details, they are destined to become your new favorite bottoms. The Mitchell Trousers are high-waisted with a fly front zipper and a comfy hidden waistband facing for a sleek continuous silhouette through the rise–choose between a hidden pants hook and bar or classic button closure. Deep pleats in the front enclose a unique angled pocket. Darts shape the back, with optional back welt pockets. View A features a tapered leg ending at the ankle. View B features a full-length wide leg and adjustable waist straps secured with D-rings or sliders.

This class is suitable for intermediate to advanced sewists who have prior garment sewing experience and know how to insert a basic zipper. Students must have prior garment sewing experience. This is a great class to build skills and confidence that you will take with you throughout your garment sewing journey!

We are offering a cutting session to help students prepare their fabric needed for class. Join us for the cutting session on Friday, February 2nd from 6:30pm - 9:00pm. Register your seat here! If you cannot attend the cutting session, you will be responsible for having your fabric pieces cut out and ready for the start of class.
