Make Your Own Jeans
July 26 @ 10:00 am - July 27 @ 4:00 pm£190
Make Your Own Jeans. Be the envy of all your friends. Create the height of luxury, a pair of jeans to fit you.
Day 1 .
Come along with a toille made in your favourite style of jeans. Have them fitted & then spend the day altering the pattern so it’s a perfect fit just for you. Tips will then be given for cutting out & you go home to cut out the jeans ready for day two.
We get straight in to all the techniques needed for making jeans. Including, front & hip pockets, fly, yokes & flat felled seams. You will never need to buy another pair of jeans & you will always have a pair in your size & style!
You will need to make a toille before the course starts & provide the materials for your jeans.
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.
