Advanced Bra Making, once you have done the Bra Making course you can move on to this course. We will cover Basic fitting alterations including making the centre front sit properly & taking in the band. Then we will move on to changing the style of your bra. How to change a partial band in to a full band, lowering the centre front to make a balconette bra & cutting a power bar will be shown.
We will also make a sample with a partial lace upper cup & a padded lower cup. Inserting a cup & casing in to a full band are just some of the techniques covered.
You do need to do the basic bra making course before you do this course.
All the course materials are included in the price.
Our workshops are run from our workroom above the English Couture Company shop in the beautiful village of Syston in Leicestershire. The room is light & airy & will take up to 8 students. We have Janome Memory craft 6600 machine for all our students. This means you don’t have to bring your machine with you. There are also overlockers available if needed. We have a good supply of the basic sewing equipment for you to use on the course.
There is always tea, coffee & biscuits provided at any time during the day. You will have to provide your own lunch. There are shops near to the studio where you can buy lunch or Ann, our friendly sandwich maker will deliver freshly made food which you can order when you get here. You can bring a packed lunch as an alternative.
The shop is available for students to buy anything they need for their projects during the day. You are very welcome to shop after the course finishes.
All our full day courses start at 10am & finish at around 4pm. Due to the comprehensive knowledge & personalised tuition operated throughout all the workshops, they can sometimes over run.
