About Style by Marianne
Owner, Style by Marianne
Sewing has been my passion for a long time, dating back to elementary school. I started by sewing doll clothes, then moved on to sewing clothes for myself in middle school, and in high school enrolled in an intensive, two-year commercial sewing vocation class. I learned how to work with many types of fabrics, including challenging leather, and learned advanced skills and created garments for myself that I was proud to wear. Some highlights include a leather jacket, a three-piece Pendleton wool suit with a matching silk blouse and lining and a tweed trench coat with pad stitching, epaulets and bound buttonholes.
Through the years, I have built upon that background and have owned my business, Style by Marianne, for more than 20 years. I've sewn clothes for my children, my family and even an outfit for Olympic ice dancer and gold medalist Charlie White, for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. I look forward to helping you expand your sewing skills.
