Padded Bra C48
August 19 @ 10:00 am£95
The Padded Bra is our latest Bra Making course. This time we cover making a padded bra. This is a bra using foam to make the cups. We don’t use preformed cups but create our own. This has advantages over the preformed cups as we can make a bra to your shape rather than the shape the manufacturers want you to have. The cups are made & then a fabric of your choice is sewn over the top of it to make your bra. I will also show you how to make bra cups using lace. This bra is very supportive & the samples have proved to be some of the most comfortable to wear.
This course is not suitable for beginners, you need to be able to sew a basic bra (see our bra making course) before you do this course. You will also need a bra pattern that fits you. I will show you how to adapt the pattern for cutting the foam padding before we start the make- up of the bra.
Note: You do need to do our basic bra making courses before you do this course.
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.
