- Bridal and special occasion garments
- business attire- hemming pants, taking in jackets
- resizing of quality garments
I’ve been making and altering clothing since I was 12.
Whether it’s hemming bridal gowns and bridal party dresses, to adjusting bodices to make them fit better for that special day, I’ve done it all, and if I haven’t, I’ll figure it out.
Perhaps you have some classic pieces of clothing that are in good shape but you’ve changed size. I can help there too.
The best option is always to let me see the garment in person, and we can arrange a no-obligation consultation that is mutually convenient. I’ll take a look at the piece and how it fits you and then how it’s made to give you an estimate. Then you decide.
I have a very relaxed home studio where I see clients by appointment. It is located on St. Andrew Street, east off King Edward and can book clients on Tuesdays through Fridays and some Saturdays- afternoons from 1-4 p.m.
It is Scent Free, so please keep that in mind; and I do have a small dog at my home studio, but she stays out of the sewing!
In general, I can be available from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., always by appointment, and on Thursdays and Fridays until 6:30 p.m. for “after work” appointments.
Let me know some specific day and time options and I confirm what works for my schedule.
Email works best so I can refer to it and keep the details in one place.
My workspace is a small area where you will both change in and have the fitting. It is on the top floor of a 2.5 story walk-up, o if your dress is heavy, please let me know and I’ll meet you!
If you wish to bring someone with you for a second opinion, please limit it to one person per visit, as it is a very cozy space.
Appointments are booked for 30 minutes maximum and usually only take about 15-20 minutes.
Payment is due at final pick up, though “pay as you go” is fine if that is better for your budget.
Payment options are: cash, Visa, MC, email interac, and paypal. HST is applied and indicated to all final totals.
Please note: due to allergies resulting in respiratory reactions:
- No perfumes/scented items
- No fabrics or clothing with smoke residue
- No fabric softeners or freshly dry cleaned items.
Thanks- it will ensure I can actually serve you to the best of my ability.
