Do you need your clothes to fit better?

Do you have an outfit for a special occasion that needs to be altered?

Do you have an idea for an outfit that you can't find in a store?

Do you want that couture dress but can't afford it?

Do you need a sewing project tackled but don't know where to go?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you came to the right place!

Alterations can be done on most garments.

We specialize in bridal and formal wear; whether its hemming, adding a corset back or adding a bustle for your wedding gown, we can help. We can also take your mom's vintage wedding dress and turn it into a modern gown for your special day.

We also create custom garments from scratch. All we need is a photo/drawing of the article of clothing you want,

and your measurements. 

Please contact me to set up a consultation today!

Covid-19 Response

For the health and safety of our staff and clients, we have decided to not reopen until June 1st. This is due to the nature of our business and the fact that we cannot social distance during an appointment. Once we do reopen, we will require the following safety guidelines:

  • We will now have an intercom system and will only allow those with appointments in the shop.
  • We request only one additional guest at your appointment and request​ they adhere to all guidelines as well.
  • We will require all clients to wear a mask.
  • We ask that everyone put on gloves upon entering the shop (provided by us).
  • We will have hand sanitizer placed strategically around the shop.
  • We will space out appointments so that we have time to clean between each appointment.
  • We request that if you are feeling sick at all or been sick within the last 48 hours, please reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we try to navigate this crazy time.

Feel free to email us to schedule your appointment or if you have any questions.
