Lander Pants Workshop

This pattern is high-waisted pant or short, with an exposed button fly, and 3 lengths. It has front and back patch pockets, belt loops, and a straight fit through the legs. View A is a short with a 4” inseam, View B is an ankle length pant, and View C is a boot length pant that can be worn with heels. It has a difficulty rating of 3.5 out of 5, but in a class we're certain that any confident sewist could handle this pattern. Plus, you'll have Caroline Henbest leading you through the pattern, step-by-step. Caroline has made many pairs of these pants, so she will be a fabulous instructor.

Caroline will also be offering an optional 2 hour prep class to assist you in selecting your size, length, and any pattern alterations. Look on the calendar for the Lander Prep to sign up. She'll also demo adding underlining to the pants and pockets in this session.
