Born Again Dressmaker

7th July 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Born Again Dressmaker. Do some or all of the following apply to you?

Returning to dressmaking after a long break?

Wanting a more professional finish?

Can’t buy the dress you have in mind?

Have a little more time to sew for yourself & others?

Then this is the course for you! A one day course for experienced beginners. On the day we will be going through basics in Preparation, Construction, & Finishing touches. The preparation section will include notes on measurements, choosing fabrics & making simple pattern adjustments along with samples of the best interfacings to choose. Construction will have a zip placement guaranteed not to go wrong, applying facings & buttonholes. The finishing touches will include hemming, top stitching & where to place hooks & eyes. I have been asked to do this course for sometime it is designed to bridge the gap between beginners & experienced dressmakers.

All 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.

If you have any questions about this course please call Michelle on 0116 2606766.
