Wrap or Kimono in a Day.

Imagine getting out of a shower or bath & slipping into a beautiful lace trimmed satin wrap. Well here is your chance to make one. A one day course to make a luxurious satin wrap. Feel like a million dollars every time you slip into this wrap or Kimono. The Wrap or Kimono in a Day will be trimmed with a beautiful cotton lace to add luxury usually only available in the most expensive lingerie.

Learn how to handle this slippery fabric & create a wrap just for you. Techniques include French seams, lace insertion & making the belt.

I will cut out the fabric for you & provide the lace trimmings so all you have to do is sew. You will have a choice of colours to choose from. A form will be sent out to you for your preferences after booking.

Make a different version of this garment. A short version to be worn as a casual jacket. Fantastic for wearing in the evenings or on the beach.

Again I will send out a form for preferences with the booking confirmation. The fabric above comes in two colourways. Amongst other choices.

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.
