What is the difference between a Tailor and a Seamstress.
Generally, a seamstress sews clothes, fabrics and apparel for a living. A tailor works
at altering clothing and apparel to fit a client/customer. They can make clothes as well
and might be tasked with hemming and mending. Usually, a tailor will work more with
suits and coats and even fancy dresses such as ball gowns .
What kind of alteration services do you provide?
I offer a variety of services from the smallest repairs to the most challenging custom
alterations of just about anything . I also design gowns, offer custom suits for men and
women as well as redesigning and refurbishing dated garments.
Do I need an appointment?
Because I offer personalized services and while we await the opening of our storefront location, appointments
are required at this time. Appointments can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on
the type of service . Some visits require more time than others for necessary consultation
and assistance with decision making . Stay tuned in for the grand opening of our physical location in April 2017.
How do I prepare for my fitting?
Be comfortable , relaxed , and open minded. I am a professional and will not steer you
wrong. My goal is not just for my clients to look good, but also feel good. If you are
wearing a special under garment be sure to have it on at the fitting . Men need to have
the appropriate shirt for the suit fitting . Required shoe is necessary for all alteration .

How long will it take to have a suit or gown made ?
I ask that you allow 3 weeks for custom made garments. If there is an urgent need this
time can often be reduced to accommodate your deadlines. Also please be mindful of
busy seasons and holidays.
