garments series: mitchell tailored pants

These classic pleated pants by Closet Core have timeless style. All views are high waisted with a fly front zipper and a comfy hidden waistband facing for a sleek continuous silhouette through the rise. Deep pleats in the front enclose a unique angled pocket. Darts shape the back, with optional back welt pockets. Pick your favorite style and customize your make by choosing between a tapered or wide leg, or add an optional adjustable waist tie. 

This is a great class to build skills and confidence for our sew your own jeans intensive in July. It teaches students how to sew a fly front zipper and welt pockets.

This class is suitable for our intermediate sewists who have prior garment sewing experience and know how to insert a basic zipper.  

Pattern includes sizes ranging from adult size 0 through to size 20. 

Students must come to class with their fabric pieces already cut out.  If you need assistance determining your size before you cut, please feel free to come to our WIP session on Friday February 24th from 7pm. Our instructor Erin will be on hand to assist you.
