Wide Leg Pants Workshop with an Invisible Zip ✄


Over six hours in total, you'll make a pair of pants that feature a flat front, low waist and wide leg. Students will use overlockers, learn how to apply interfacing, finish the waist with a facing, insert an invisible zip in the side seam and how to get great looking results. 

The pants in the image above have been styled for Winter's cool days, they are made from a medium weight grey wool.  You can see more photos of these pants - click here.

Our pattern waist measurement covers from a 68cm to 108cm. If you wish to make pants outside this range, please email us and we will grade a pattern ready for your workshop.

Vendor since 2013

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes? 

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

On occasion, Thread Den is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach people to sew, knit and crochet, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.

24 April 2018 • Wide Leg Pants Workshop with an Invisible Zip ✄

Lovely class and the pants look amazing. I'd definitely recommend carefully checking the type of material Thread Den suggest before buying your fabric as those who bought fabric with a lot of stretch struggled. A lovely day and many new skills learnt.

Fantastic class! The instructor was super knowledgeable, patient, and solved problems on the fly. The instructor even stayed a little bit late to make sure everyone left with a wearable garment. Thanks so much!
