Project

Trousers copied from ready to wear

What are you most proud of? The zip installation and in general how smooth the process was to recreate a reasonable looking trouser from bottom end fabric. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go through the class methodically. Kenneth guides you along the way and one method leads nicely to the next, to make the process of "practical" from "theory" run smoothly. I used the rewind a lot, but that is because I wanted to get it right first time. Next I will adjust for my asymmetrical hips now I know the method well.

You Can Make This

  • I went to the Sunday market and bought some stretch fabric that looks like the stuff you would have School uniforms made from. Linen look on the front
  • but smooth and shiny on the reverse
  • it was a polyester blend and it cost me 4 Euro/m

Q&A with TeresaWard

Fibro asked:
Well done Teresa you've done really well.
TeresaWard answered:
Thank you "Fibro", I hope to make a pair of white linen shorts next, so I can master the zip and I will need to adjust the fit in places. Shorts for Summer will be quick and cost effective. Thank you for your comment. ;-)
