Description

Interns participate in all projects coming in the studio including, but not limited to: client consultations/fittings, custom design & creation, fabric sourcing, commercial pattern adaptation, alterations for ready to wear (RTW), custom, and costumes.

Please note that this internship is UNPAID and MUST be for a school credit.

You will be interviewed by the owner and the Workroom Supervisor. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for the internship position, you will establish a start date with Marilyn. On your first day of the internship, you will be asked to do a sewing assessment test in order for us to further evaluate your sewing skills and needs. Then we will base your internship experience around your skills assessment and the questionnaire you filled out at the beginning of the application.

Responsibilities

Interns at the studio can expect to work on a variety of projects within the studio, as well as client work.

Though not all of what interns are handed is the "fun" work, interns should have the expectation of working in a real-live shop with many, many kinds of clients coming through the door.

There are plenty of opportunities to work on a lot of different things because we are all in the same workroom. So even though an intern may not have their hands directly on the $6000 wedding gown, they will still be in the thick of it.

All intern work is stitching or running-a-shop-related. This is no coffee-fetching internship!
