Q: Can you make custom clothes?
A: YES! We can help bring your apparel ideas to life. All you have to do is come in with a pattern or pattern idea, then we'll measure you so that you will know the exact amount of fabric and types of closures needed for the custom garment. After you drop off your chosen fabric, pattern, and closures we will then cut out the pattern and sew it using your exact measurements. Once your garment is complete we will then fit it to you and make necessary final adjustments. Prices vary based on the pattern, intricacy of design, and time allotted to complete the project.
