If you can’t afford the time or expense of our full six -day traditional tailoring course, then this is the course for you. Two days to make a sample half jacket using the traditional tailoring methods. We will cover everything from canvassing the jacket & fixing it with pad stitching to finishing off the jacket with pricked stitched edges & beautiful hand worked buttonholes. You will go home with a half jacket, so when you come to make your own jacket at home, you will have your own three -dimensional reference book there in front of you to guide you through all the processes.
This course is a great insight in to the Art of Bespoke Tailoring.
Techniques covered, include;-
Basting out /Basting under
Making up the cuff
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.
