I love to collaborate and create your perfect piece--anything from theater costumes, to bridal gowns, to sports jacket alterations.
Custom clothing is a collaboration of your ideas and my expertise. The process consists of an initial meeting, then 1-4 fittings (depending on the complexity of the project). In the initial meeting, we will discuss everything from style, color, season, to fabric type and fit. I will also take your measurements. Sketches, fabric swatches, detailed pattern specs, and price quote will be included in a work contract.
Before any work begins, I will provide you with a detailed price quote for the project. This includes: all materials, fit sessions, pattern design, sew time.
Alterations are based on a rate of $20/hr. Most small things like hemming and mending take about 1 hour, while waist adjustments and sleeve changes can take up to 3 hours.
Small hand embellishments like chain stitching or embroidery start at $15 and increase with size (starting at 2"x 2")
