CHARLOTTE, NC Trouser/Pant Drafting 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 Flash Drive or Digital Version of his book), 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.

Class Notes will be mailed to you to print out and you must bring them.  His book goes into greater depth on this method is available on a Flash Drive Book or Digital Version is available for purchase.$24.95 US shipping, click here. $24.95 for Digital Version click here  International Shipping of a Flash drive $32.95 click here.
