You want casual clothes that suit your lifestyle. Comfortable, but not sloppy. You want clothes that show off your personal style - not clothes that look like everyone else. And you want clothes that fit you perfectly. That's casual couture!
Let's start with some basic patterns and make them your own with variations and details. Choose tops, tees, tunics, pants, skirts or simple dresses. Bring any ideas, photos, pictures or details you would like to incorporate into a garment. We'll fit the patterns and sew up some great new garments that add a little fun and excitement to your wardrobe. I'll share tips and sewing techniques that add a couture touch to your casual clothes.

You may bring your own sewing machine or arrange with Marla to borrow one.

Workshops begin each morning at 9AM and finish at 5PM. The classroom is available to you in the evening and will be locked securely overnight.

Lunch is included each day. There are many restaurants within walking distance for dinner on your own.
This workshop will be limited to 6 students to ensure individual attention. A $100 non-refundable deposit will reserve a space for you.

The workshop will be held at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Portland South/Lake Oswego, located at 6100 SW Meadows Road, Lake Oswego, OR 97035.
