‘Simple Trousers’ Dressmaking with Jo Baker-Spaces available


Ideal workshop for beginners in Dressmaking – Jo Baker takes you through the steps to make a perfect pair of trousers in the style, colour and material of your choice.


This pattern is the best of both worlds; a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay.

Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).

Size 0-32 (US) Hip 33”-63”

This workshop is a one day workshop where Jo takes you through all the steps to produce the trousers. You may still have some finishing off to do when you get home but you go home equipped with the knowledge and skills to do so.  This project is designed for beginners to intermediate level in dressmaking and is an ideal first pair of trousers to make.

You will need:

This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more defined shape, use structured wovens such as linen, chambray, or lightweight denim or twill (heavyweight wovens may create too much volume at the elastic waist). For a swishy, glamorous look, use rayon challis, tencel, or silk. Amount of fabric depending on which view and size to be made. The pattern with this information will be emailed to you upon booking.
