Pant Construction Techniques

with Sandra Betzina
Pant Construction Techniques
Sit down at the machine with author Sandra Betzina, who shares a lifetime's worth of sewing skills to help you construct the perfect pair of pants!

If you enjoyed Sandra's first Craftsy class, Pant Fitting Techniques, or know her from her books, newspaper columns and TV series, here's your chance to sit down at the machine with Sandra and learn professional sewing skills from the popular author and host of Power Sewing.

In this class, Sandra cuts, marks and sews Vogue 2948 (included free with this class!) while demonstrating professional pant construction and finishing techniques. As you sew along with Sandra, you'll learn how to harness the power of your machine, explore variations for different fabrics, and pick up dozens of tips that you will be able to use for years to come.

"I started as a complete novice (I've only started to sew in January), and I loved this class. I learned heaps, and in the last two months I have made four pairs of pants, and each one better than the one before. And the learning experience was enhanced by Sandra's fun and charming presentation. It was nice to have the emphasis on real women and not super models!"
