I've been sewing a long time but never made my own patterns. I wanted to see how Glenda did her pants and what tips and tricks she had to share. She does an excellent job walking you through the process of making your own pull on pants. Looking forward to trying some other sew alongs and fine tuning my sewing!

I bought this because I wanted to learn how to design the pockets so I could branch out from using the in-seam shapes that came with my kit. I've had a great time and particularly appreciated the drafting tips for tweaks to the casing to work with the sloping waist line on my blueprint. I learnt loads of things that I know I will be applying to other projects.

Glenda, As with all your videos, you make this super easy to understand. I really enjoyed and learned a lot about how to put pockets in pull-on pants. I never put pockets on my pull-on pants before, but I'm definitely going to give it a try now. Keep making the videos! Pat Buis

I found the whole of this series of instructions on how to draft the pull-on pants pattern from my blueprint, including how to narrow the leg, draft up a hand-size pattern and lining of a pocket to my hand size, to be very informative. Glenda makes things so easy to understand. I have found Glenda to be an excellent tutor and now I just have to go ahead and see what I can produce from these instructions.

I wanted to sew a different style of pants, and decided on this course. I really like having "private" lessons in my own home.
