Class Sessions

Design Review & Drawstring Pants (28:08)
Meet Suzy Furrer! Class starts with a review of the creative exercises you learned in the first class of the series, on drafting tops. You’ll use these best practices to start planning your wardrobe, choosing your fabric and designing a comfortable, casual drawstring pant with your well-fitting sloper.

Finishing the Drawstring Pants (26:51)
Complete the drawstring pant by adding a side-seam pocket and drawstring, then quickly review the industry standards for production-ready patterns and pattern record cards.

Palazzo Pants (24:35)
Continue to expand your wardrobe by drafting an on-trend palazzo pant pattern, a perfect style for drapey, flowing fabrics and for going out on the town. You’ll explore length options and pleats to ensure a sophisticated look.

Flat-Front Trousers (18:16)
Get down to business drafting a pattern for this work wardrobe must-have: the tailored trousers. Suzy will discuss proper fabric choice and techniques for adjusting the pant legs for best results.

Trouser Details (29:57)
Put the polishing touches on your trousers by drafting a zipper fly, waistband and a double welt pocket. You’ll also explore pant lining options.

More Design Details (19:40)
You’ll wrap the course by drafting a few more design details including a back yoke, belt loops and patch pocket, the perfect finishes to customize jeans.
