Couture Boned Bodice
The Couture Boned Bodice is an exceptional one day workshop, especially for those who are about to plan for a special gown. Although the concept of couture engineering is an eye opening experience for anyone with purely an interest in fashion, the couturiers or dressmaking.
Using this special formula you can create the most wonderful Boned Bodice suitable for all fabrics from rich velvets to the finest of silks.
Eliminate the problems of wrinkling, less than perfect joints, painful boning poking through and limp bodices. You will be taken through all the stages of completing a bodice – covering interlayering, contouring canvas, boning, lining, zip placement, Rouleax, piping and waist stays. Notes will be given for fitting and adapting the bodice. Part samples will be made by all.
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.
