You've never sewn pants like this before! This Ann Tilley original is designed in a high-waisted sailor style; with a polished, flat-front look, and all the comfort of an elastic waist. A bib front hides a ribbed knit panel which allows the pants to be pulled up over the hips, and the waist is secured with D-rings and snap flaps. Generous front pockets and a wide leg complete this unique style. The only thing more exciting than its unusual construction is how easy this garment is to fit.
This class is for intermediate to advanced sewists, with prior experience in garment-sewing. The pattern is unisex and works well on all body types.
Students will have access to XS-XL paper patterns at VFS and are expected to trace pattern and cut out their pre-washed linen (or other comparable bottom-weight fabric) before class. D-rings, ribbed knit fabric, 2" elastic, twill tape, and snaps will be provided by the teacher.
