One Pattern, Many Looks: Pants

with Kathy Ruddy
Create a versatile block pattern to ensure perfect-fitting pants across an array of style choices. Kathy Ruddy shows you how!

Three styles of waist finish ... three kinds of pockets ... three different leg styles. Kathy Ruddy gives you all these options and more, using a single pants pattern that you'll adjust to fit in any fabric. Make your own tummy-tuck jeans or yoked yoga pants. Never worry again about fit when making a new pair of trousers, jeans or casual pants. Kathy's ready-to-wear secrets will save you time and give you great results. You'll love this no-nonsense approach to real women's bodies and clothing needs.

"Up until this class, my pants were definitely a hit-or-miss affair. No longer. I can now see what is different between the pattern and my figure (with all its faults) and also how to interpret and make adjustments. Furthermore, all those fancy impressive-looking welt pockets have been demystified. Lots of little sewing tips from an expert to build confidence to try something new."
