Overview

You’ll learn fitting and pattern alteration as you turn your jeans into a blueprint without taking them apart. Kenneth demonstrates his ingenious method to create a pattern that lets you make pair after pair of fun, flattering pants in any fabric, from casual to dressy, for women or men. In 11 lessons, he’ll walk you through measuring, drafting and construction. You’ll also be privy to construction tips picked up during Kenneth’s years of couture sewing — things that make complex details a total breeze.
