Dear former clients and friends,
I have decided to retire from my services of alterations, teaching, designer coaching, prototypes, design and dressmaking as of January 1, 2022. The Pandemic has really hit small businesses and it seems that more virus threats are arising.
After 46 years in my passionate profession, it is time to spend more time with my family and get some aches and pains taken care of from doing this work. I look forward to hiking, walking, yoga and swimming. And time off to enjoy friendships and dream more dreams.
I will be in the area off and on, but only working for one clothing company for design and manufacturing sourcing on a seasonal part time basis.
I hope to travel in a little camper, with my partner Tom, to spend quality time with friends and family over the next year.
I am very grateful to all my wonderful clients and for all of the fantastic opportunities I have been blessed with, to “play” with their fabrics and clothing ideas, to help them get just what they desires and more! 😊
Continue to follow your dreams my dear friends!
I know I will miss all of you!
Do you have a favorite look or piece of clothing?
Start up coaching
Do you have a clothing idea that you believe would create a new business for you?
Prototypes, Patterns and First Samples
With professional design and fine dressmaking experience since 1976, Designers will have coaching, fitting, commercial labor saving sewing techniques, first "muslin" mock ups, fabric choices, anything from your drawings or ideas into reality!
With the Pandemic restrictions I have specialized in working with designers to create their next clothing samples and lines.
Many weddings were canceled last year and may be rescheduled this year. It is best to contact me early if you need bridal alterations.
New Designer brought just a drawing! We discussed ideas, market, feasibility, sizing, fabrics, made the mock up muslin, fit it on her fit model, standardized patterns for production and created 2 gowns for her fashion show and marketing needs. She later used this same basic pattern for short sassy casual jackets.
