Pants for Real People with Tamra

Pants are fairly easy to sew but fitting them can be a challenge.  Pants that fit well will make you look a size (or two) smaller.  After tissue fitting to find your variations from the pattern, we will cut and sew using the Palmer/Pletsch “Fit as You Sew” method to get a pair of pants that flatter your figure.  The first session will be spent tissue fitting the pattern, you will cut out your pants at home and then in the second and third sessions we'll fit the pants in fabric and sew them.  You will learn to put in a fast, easy zipper and how to attach a waistband that doesn't roll.  Tamra is a Palmer/Pletsch Certified Pant Fit Instructor as well as a Trained Sewing Educator. 
This is a 3-session class, each session is $50.
