Marilla Walker - Roberts Collection
Marilla Walker designs contemporary women's fashion that is both wearable and beautifully made. She looks to the beautiful lines seen in Scandinavian and Japanese design for her main inspiration, but there is also a Central American influence in there somewhere, which she hopes is evident!
The patterns are printed on quality paper and come in a printed brown paper envelope.
This is an uber comfortable, modern and stylish mini collection of dress making patterns. The design details are echoed and repeated throughout each of the four garments to form cohesive wardrobe staples that are really fun and easy to wear.
The style is oversized and baggy with a dropped waist/crotch and all over roomy fit.
