come spend the most fun day ever learning how to pattern and perfectly fit a non-darted AND darted bodice!
you will be fitting the bodice to yourself but in the process, learn how to pattern and fit a darted or non-darted bodice to anyone!
these workshops are an all day portlandia affair! we start the day with meet & greet chit chat & a light breakfast of french-pressed coava coffee & grand central toast with butter & local farm jam. then we pattern! lunch is catered from somewhere local & yummy (please see list of possible restaurants & menus!). during the lunch hour, you'll be treated to a bonus mini workshops that could be anything from a lesson in how to shiburi fabric, make your own massage essential oil or cook something delicious. after lunch, we pattern more! by the end of the day, you will have a muslin & paper pattern of your fitted bodice, notated & ready to be sewn up in the fashion fabric of your dreams.
our mission in providing all of this is two-fold; we get to partner with the numerous & amazing local businesses & crafty minds portland has to offer & create for you the most luxurious eight hours of non-stop learning & hands-on immersion. our hope is that you walk away a more confident & skilled pattern maker with a full belly & a warm thoughts.
oh yeah! and you'll get to meet & hang with a rad group of like-minded peoples.
