Why Trust Your Clothes With Me


Since opening my shop in 2014, I have provided services to a great many customers.  They have all been very pleased with the quality and promptness of my work.  They have been returning and referring other people to me. 

They appreciate that I have a large work table for accurate measuring and cutting, and I have hundreds of thread colors available for a good match to their garments.  In fact, if I don't have a color I'm happy with, I go purchase it.  In other words, the new hem on a "royal plum" bridesmaid dress will be done with "royal plum" thread!

The customer receives a copy of the order form containing my contact information, which specifies the garments and work to be done.

All items brought for work are protected in separate shop-owned garment bags while at the shop.

You are assured of excellent customer service, consideration of your time, and professional care of your garments.

Prior to relocating here to Summerville, I lived on Hilton Head Island, where sewing clients included the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa and its office staff, as well as staff of the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.

On Hilton Head, I also designed and sewed stage-set items and provided costume alterations for two-week runs of 28 Broadway-type shows of Seahawk Stage Productions, such as Les Miserables, Big River, Chess, 1776, and The Crucible, to name a few.
WHAT TO DO WHEN THE DRESS WON'T ZIP UP?  NOT TO WORRY!
Whether it's a wedding dress, a prom dress, or any formal, a common problem is that it just won't zip up all the way in back.  Well, there's an easy solution!  I remove the zipper and install what's called a "corset-back" or "lace-up back" for you.  The picture at left is a wedding dress I converted in this way, and the customer was thrilled!  A complete corset kit can be purchased by the customer online, in a variety of colors.  I will provide all the information when you bring your dress in for a fitting.  For any questions before you make a choice, feel free to call me at the shop (843-384-4559) and I will be happy to help!
