Fit to Finish with a Fit to Flatter Attitude.

October 5 @ 10:00 am - October 7 @ 4:00 pm


Fit to finish solves the problem of How, Why and Where do I fit? This is a question I have been asked time and time again. You have read the books, seen the patterns and tried various fitting programmes, but to no avail. Why is fitting such a great problem and yet it is one of the most essential ingredients to achieving a totally professional finish to hand made clothes.

I believe I have the answer!!

From this workshop you will gain a total understanding of your personal measurements and how these will relate to the commercial pattern companies. We will also analyse the correct designer ease expected, neckline control, shoulder, bust, waist and hip positioning and overall contour of these essential garments.

Then finally you will professionally construct two customised toile’s. Both top and skirt, made from calico will be completed with information on interfacing, lining and all the necessary notions. This will be achieved easily !! No comprehensive fitting charts, formidable contraptions or unexplained pieces of tape.

How? You just book the workshop and leave the rest to me. I promise you this is easy and it works! You will leave this workshop with a fitted sleeveless top and skirt toile, plus a ‘how to’ manual, completed to your personal alterations.

All course materials are included in the price.

BOOK NOW as this course is limited to six students only.

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.
