Patternmaking Steps for Sewing Classic Trousers

In this session, I copied the Semi Fitted Trousers Block and drafted a classic fit trousers with slant side pockets and a waist facing.

Today I focused on:
- Tracing key pattern blocks needed to create the trousers pieces
- Drafting the following pieces onto tracing paper:
    - Fly
    - Fly facing
    - Fly guard
    - Waistband facing
    - Pockets (bag and facing)
- Adding seam allowance and notches
- Discussing appropriate fabrics to use

Next week I will cut out the pattern pieces and start constructing the trousers. Steps will include:
- Sewing the pockets
- Assembling the front fly and zipper
- Closing back darts and assembling trouser legs
- Sewing side seams and crotches
- Adding waistband facing
- Hemming bottoms
