The Trouser Draft with Kenneth King
Haberdasher to the stars, Kenneth D. King has designed clothing, home furnishings, and accessories for Elton John, Jim Carrey, and others. He is professor of haute couture at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and sewing expert on the PBS series Sewing Today. He is also an author and personality seen in various media outlets. In this class we will cover the proper measuring for trousers as well as drafting the basic plain-front trouser. Students will draft and make plain front muslin trousers for themselves. Afterwards, a discussion of the other details of trousers will be discussed. Once the student leaves, she has the knowledge needed to create trousers for herself.
