From slim leg pants to wide leg trousers, from low rise to high waisted - pants are a staple in our wardrobes. They come in all shapes and
sizes, yet getting a good fit can be a challenge. Join Marla for 3 days of fitting great looking pants using a method that combines flat
pattern adjustments and draping techniques.
Choose the patterns and fabrics that work for your lifestyle. Try several styles or concentrate on fitting and perfecting one basic
pattern. Bring fabric for several pairs or shop here in Portland at our wonderful fabric stores (See Optional Shopping Day below).
Learn how and where to measure the body and the pattern, how to make adjustments to the pattern, and tissue fit any style of pants. Then
grain up your fabric, cut, and sew up a pair of pants. You will learn how to sew smooth darts, a variety of pockets and fly front and
invisible zipper applications. Fine tune your fit as you sew. Then learn about waistline finishes, inserting linings and finishing your
pants with the perfect hem.
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. Accommodations are available at the Fairfield Inn or other nearby hotels. Contact the
