General Questions 

  • Do you make clothing from scratch?
    • Yes and No. I am capable of making items from scratch, and have hand-made dresses, skirts, shirts, and suits.  I normally order a garment from a Ready-To-Wear company and custom tailor them to fit you. Hand-making items is very time consuming and is normally more expensive than ordering RTW and having it altered.
    • Our Made-to-Measure Suits and Slacks are from Corbin.
  • Should I bring my measurements to an appointment?
    • No. You don't need to bring measurements, since I will take custom measurements for each order. If I am altering a garment you already own, please bring the shoes you plan to wear with that garment. Otherwise, I take care of all the measuring at your fitting appointment.
