TESTIMONIALS

Fantastic… beautiful fabrics and laces and trims. Classes in tailoring and dress making taught to the highest standard possible by an excellent teacher.

I recommend the English Couture Company highly and know of many designers and dressmakers who use them for all the haberdashery and construction items that are often very difficult to get hold of. Items are sent quickly and they are always willing to help if you need to get advice. Phone or email. I am always super happy with anything I have bought and the quality is excellent. My latest purchase doesn’t look very exciting but if you want stability on any seam, this tape is magic. You iron the wider part in your seam allowance and stitch on the opaque stitching line. No more stretched out seams, washes and irons perfectly.

Your course was fantastic Michelle. Best course I’ve ever done and I can’t wait to do those buttonholes after watching you work your usual magic with such skill and expertise!

My advice to anyone who is thinking or would like to improve their sewing is to visit one of Michelle’s courses. She gives everything, advice, experience, and the insider knowhow, tips and tricks you would never think of or get from anywhere else. The skirt is a piece of material of very high quality purchased from English Couture Company. Not to be found anywhere else, I now have a very nice garment.

“What an inspiring day, I just had to go home and make the [waistcoat]. So much information given, not to be found anywhere else, or by anyone else, you are a star. I would advise anyone to attend your courses. The courses are run very professional and knowledgeable from someone having worked in the trade.”

My beautiful wrap in a day. Luxurious cotton satin with inserted lace. Sewing course with Michelle Pye at English Couture Company. A wonderful day sewing with a beautiful garment at the end.
