Looking to dip your toes into dressmaking? Join us as we teach you how to make the Tilly and The Buttons Safiya Trousers in just one day! Here's what Tilly has to say about the pattern:

"Safiya has culotte-style wide legs which are cropped to just above the ankle - and easy to lengthen or shorten to create your preferred length. They are cinched at the waist with elastic, with a clever flat-fronted construction that creates a flattering look for those of you who don't like fabric ruched up around your tum. With just two pattern pieces and no fiddly fastenings to grapple with, the Safiya trousers can be whipped up in a flash. They're so comfy, it's like you're secretly wearing pyjamas!"

This workshop will teach you:

  • How to read a paper pattern
  • How to measure yourself properly
  • Deciding the best fabric for you
  • How to cut your fabric
  • Waistband construction
  • Threading Elastic
  • Seam finishing techniques

Included in the price of this course is the Tilly and The Buttons 'Make it Simple' book that this pattern comes from.The book caters for UK 6 TO 24.
