Draft a Custom Trouser/Pant Pattern in ATLANTA with Kenneth D. King

Using your own measurements, you will be taken step by step through the process of drafting a trouser/pant pattern.

Kenneth teaches the system of drafting trousers (for men and women) from measurements. After taking the proper measurements (which is covered in the text, as well as on the video on the CD), we cover calculations for the draft, and drafting the trouser. Once the trouser is drafted and made, common adjustments that might need to be made to the test the fit in the muslin to ensure proper fit. Finally, after a well-fitting trouser muslin has been made, the directions for adding style, such as pleats, pockets, waistbands, and the like, will be discussed.

A $25 kit fee will be collected at the workshop.

Optional Text: We have his CD Books available for purchase on-line.  The price includes shipping.
