In addition to all the great content in the book Making Trousers for Men and Women: A Multimedia Sewing Workshop by David Coffin, there is a DVD that comes with the book and I thought I'd share with you one of the clips today. It is filled with some great tips on altering a pants pattern that are so easy and great for restyling!
By David Coffin
Comfortable, flattering pants can be challenging to make—but they’re wonderful to wear. In this book, David Coffin provides his inventive, sure-fire methods for getting it right.
With his characteristic precision and straight talk—and with the help of photographs, drawings, and a series of video sequences on the accompanying CD-ROM—Coffin teaches the reader how to get great results—whether making a showcase garment or just whipping out an everyday pair.
