Briefly Covered is a one day course to make a personalised pattern for your own knickers, whether you are a fan of big knickers a la Bridget Jones, the skimpiest of thongs or anything in-between. This course will give you the inspiration for the most comfortable pair of knickers you have ever worn. The morning will be spent drafting a pattern in your size & design & the afternoon will be taken up with making the knickers. All techniques will be covered including inserting a gusset & applying elastic so the pants don’t ride up. There will also be time allowed for discussion on using lace & trimmings to make knickers for special occasions. You will leave this course with a pair of knickers & a pattern made to fit you.
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.
