custom design

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. I will put together a price estimate before beginning any work.

Small hand embellishments like chain stitching or embroidery start at $15 and increase with size (starting at 2"x 2")


My specialty is re-making bridal gowns previously worn by a mother or friend into something perfect for you. I also make custom gowns and can do any alterations needed to a gown you already own.

 *In order to value my time competitively, any additions or changes requested after the project has begun will be an additional charge.
