Comfortable, flattering trousers are satisfying to make and wonderful to wear. In Making Trousers, David Page Coffin provides his inventive, sure-fire methods for getting it right. With his characteristic precision and straight talk - and the help of his own photographs and drawings - Coffin presents a workshop on how to get custom-quality results with the simplest trousers pattern. The book opens with a peek inside existing garments - off-the-rack ready-to-wear, high-priced designer wear from Yves St. Laurent and Giorgio Armani, and fine examples of custom-tailored classic styles. Based on the secrets those garments reveal - and driven by his own quest for simplicity and style - Coffin then presents easy-to-learn and quick-to-make options on pockets, closures, waistbands and finishing details. With Coffin's insights and encouragement, you'll learn to transform your favourite trousers pattern into a comfortable, flattering, custom garment that suits you just right.
