Gentlemen’s Trousers. Making Bespoke Gentlemen’s Trousers is a work of art. Hand finishing gives them that special look only found in the top tailoring workrooms. Michelle delves in to her tailoring past to bring you frog mouth pockets, hand sewn zips & waistbands with curtain finish . These are just some of the techniques covered on this workshop. We will make a sample pair of Gentlemen’s Trousers for you to refer to when making trousers at home.
Dress your man to Saville Row standard without the price tag.
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.
