Inside Secrets gives you a peek in to the world of interfacings/interlinings Which can be a complicated & at first glance quite boring subject but seeing the difference they can make is the most exciting part of dressmaking/tailoring.  Michelle brings you a whole day studying the combination of fabrics, interlinings and linings.

Learn how to eliminate everyday problems: limp bodices, floppy collars, heavy hems, seams ridges, see through dresses, seating and creasing. During the course you will compile a picture dictionary of designs, complete with fabric interlinings and interfacing swatches. By handling, mounting, fusing, machine stitching and pressing. suitable for skirts, trousers, couture suits, tailored suits, special occasion wear, day wear, ball gowns and wedding dresses. This day is a must for all!!

All Course materials are included for 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.
