We are a local design studio with a passionate, creative, hard-working, and dedicated group of individuals that are determined to rejuvenate the craft of sewing and making people feel good in their clothes.

 

The successful exposure of our tailoring operation, which started strictly by word-of-mouth testimonials,
has allowed us to branch out, including: repairs division for knits/wovens/denim, custom making, garment copy and a retail division.

 

Our clients come from far and wide to take advantage of our wide range of services and to have their clothes expertly fitted or repaired.
