Fine Custom Sewing in Santa Fe, NM


Alterations can be large or small, from the very basic to the very complex. I up- and down-size garments and restyle them to suit your needs and fancies. I can remake your mother's (or grandmother's) wedding dress to please you in fit and design while preserving all those yards of beautiful silk charmeuse - an updated heirloom. I can take your favorite pair of pleated wool trousers and turn them into flat front pants to flatter a changing shape and keep you in style. I can make your Dad's tuxedo yours. Old favorites can be restored, renewed, recreated. New favorites are made to fit in ways that reflect your style and sensibility.

And they can be repeated! I also specialize in dressmaking (that's not just dresses!) and work in all fabrics. Copy something tried and true, or create whatever you like. I make and alter wedding dresses, bridal wear, and clothing for special occasions, like christening gowns and costumes.

Pattern making is integral to my work. I excel at fitting, an essential ingredient in any project. I'm not satisfied until you are.

With over 25 years experience in the art and craft of sewing, I offer my honest advice and considered opinion about any project, and try to find the best and most direct route to achieving your goal.
