Do you..

From the comfort of home, join curvy sewing expert Jenny Rushmore as she demonstrates how to sew the Meriam Trousers in step-by-step video lessons.

Welcome to Pants Making for Curves!

A well-fitting pair of tailored trousers can help you feel your most confident at the office and the home office, and anywhere in between. In this course, join me to learn how to make your very own Meriam Trousers!

I developed the Meriam Trousers to be classic but comfortable, thanks to an innovative flex waistband that expands by 3-4" as you sit, as well the option of a back piece with a 1" full bum adjustment already done for you. You shouldn't have to compromise on style, fit, or comfort just because you're curvy. But sewing your first pair of trousers can be a bit intimidating, so that's why I designed this new course; even if you're an adventurous sewing beginner, you can get a wonderful result.

In this workshop, I take you step by step through everything you need to know about sewing your trousers, from picking the right fabrics and notions, to assembling the innovative flex waistband, to creating perfect welt pockets.

Included in the course is a free* copy of the Meriam Trousers pattern (choose from a downloadable PDF or a paper version that will be mailed to you). The Meriam was designed for curves in sizes 0-32. Already have the Meriam? No problem—you can use the coupon on any other pattern, too.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!
