Beginner Knit Pants - Pants No. 2 (Legging/Long Johns)

This class is perfect for a beginner starting on *knit* clothing or starting their first try at  knit pants. This is a fairly straightforward pattern that will introduce dealing with crotch seam, and elastic cuffs and waist.

The class is a total of 4 hours over 2 weeks (2 sessions 2 hours each).

Purchasing this class provides you with the teaching time and the pattern. You will also need to purchase the amount of fabric needed for the size of pant you wish to make from SEAMS. We require the purchase of fabric from SEAMS since the class price is entirely in support of the teacher. The SEAMS Team greatly appreciates you supporting both the teacher and the store.

This class is a bring your own machine class. If you are unfamiliar with using your machine please book an one hour "Get to Know Your Machine" one on one class by emailing

There is one machine available to borrow in class if you do not have your own. Please email if you wish to use this machine it is first come first serve.

NOTE: Your sewing machine will need to be able to perform a zig-zag stitch or reinforced straight stitch, or lightening stitch, to work with knits. (Or unless you would like to bring a serger machine you could probably do most of the work on that as well assuming it does a tight enough stitch for a seam) 

Before the Class begins:

  • Please purchase fabric needed from Seams. 
  • Trace out pattern in appropriate size before coming to class.
  • Prewash, dry, and iron fabric before class.
