I love this for several reasons: because its so hard to find things to fit off the rack, because I find it fascinating how garments are put together, because I always learn something new when I alter a garment, and because I love it when something fits - when a garment transforms you. I learned much of my tailoring technique by being fortunate enough to take apart and put back together again Haute couture clothing. Some of this was found in consignment or vintage clothing stores. Some was worn by the Hollywood elite. Some was worn by certain SF personalities..........
At any rate, please bring me your wardrobe that needs updating. Bring me your wedding dress that needs taken in, let out, hem up or down, bustle added, whatevs..............I do a great job, have reasonable or comparable rates, and am located in the East Bay, 15 minutes north of Berkeley, Ca. Easy to get to by car and easy to find.
I love making Wedding dresses from scratch also. Lets not forget the specialness of your wedding day, and how this garment that you wear symbolizes your new life together. Celebrate any way you like, but if you decide to come to me for your dress, I will pour my soul into it. I specialize in the off-beat bride who likes to do things her way and not necessarily the way her mama did things!
Moving out of San Francisco has put me in the position of starting over in a way. Maybe not the best timing because of the economy, but maybe it was. At any rate, My city clients hate to cross the bridge, so I am reaching out to you East Bayers and you Napa/Sonoma folk. I have a fabulous studio to work out of, I was born and raised here. I'm back home. I'm ready to roll!
