Swanky, Bridal Vans!

Another project in which the client had the vision and I provided the creative skills! We took lace and beads from her mother's gown, added some rhinestones and beads from my own collection, and blinged up these kicks! Want a special pair of shoes to wear on your wedding day? Bring your creative ideas to me and I can make them a reality! 

Picnic Fun!

As of May I have not had a business location. With the pandemic and the changes in how people go to work and celebrate special events, I have made changes in how I approach my work and that has resulted changes in the type of projects I am taking on. In many ways this has been a blessing and resulted in many creative projects coming my way! 

This picnic basket lining was a first for me! The project was for a young man who wanted to take his girlfriend on a picnic for her birthday! He provided the fabric and the basket and I leant my skills to making his vision a reality! I decided to create it with French seams so that the visible seams looked clean and fully finished (shown in third photo). Such a joy to be able to contribute to someone's special occasion and get to try my hand at something new!

Appointments and Alterations Postponed

As per the recent Shelter in Place mandate put in place throughout the state, I am postponing all appointments and alterations until May 1st. This means that all appointments made for April will be rescheduled for May and all alterations due for return in April can not be returned until May. If I have your garments, please know that these items are safe in storage at the John O'Daniel Exchange which is now also closed to the public and employees. Thank you for your patience and understanding! I look forward to working with you and your pieces when we are all allowed to return to work. Be well and stay safe!

Bridesmaids - When to Book

Hello Bridesmaids! Thank you for choosing to schedule your alterations with me. I know being a bridesmaid can be an investment both in both money and time, so I aim to keep the process simple for you. If you are scheduling during the off season months of November through March, I request only 1 - 2 weeks before the wedding date to complete your alterations. If you are scheduling during the peak season months of April through October, I request at least 3 - 4 weeks before the wedding date to complete your alterations. If you are traveling for a destination wedding, take this into consideration when booking your initial appointment. Exceptions may apply. If you are not sure or are in a time crunch, please email me at
