Pant Fit & Sew  Moving on to the the lower body with Pant Fit & Sew.  This is going to rock your sewing world right off it’s foundation by empowering you to make pants that FIT!  I recommend the workshop-tested Palmer/Pletsch for McCall’s pattern 6901-a perfect pant pattern for learning fit. We will start with a presentation that walks you through all the pant fit basics and covers fabrics and notions, too.  Since there is some sewing involved before a great fabric pin fitting can happen, I’ve made this intro class three sessions. You will alter your pattern, cut from fabric, insert zippers and sew crotch seams, pin fit and prepare the waist band.  Some home sewing will remain to complete your garment. You can change up this basic pant in numerous ways and  make it your lower body road  map.
