Thank you for your interest in my work. I love to meet new customers and cherish all of my repeat clients!
You will find me working from my historic studio in NW Portland, where I meticulously handcraft every piece with the finest materials and detail. Every piece is made to your exact fit.
My passion is making art in the form of beautiful garments, that will become your favorite statement pieces. When you work with me, you will find that I take the time to make sure each button hole is perfect, each seam is aligned just right and that your final piece is custom for you. I sketch, draft, and source the perfect fabric samples, and then I work with you to create your design. One of my specialties is vintage renewal, as part of my custom orders. I can create something custom just for you, or you are welcome to choose from my collection of original designs.
I’m excited to get started on your dream garment and I invite you to contact my studio to arrange for a free initial consultation. Creating your piece is a multi-step process. During our initial consultation you can let me know what your special needs are and what you are looking for, share your ideas and let me know what colors, fabric and details you have in mind. At this time we can also work out a budget. Then, after our initial consultation we will book a fitting, where I can present you with some ideas, sketches and fabric options, a $500 deposit is required to book a fitting, which is credited to each order. Along the way we can book multiple fittings and consultations, as needed, which are included in the total fee. Once you choose your fabric and basic design I will create a mock-up sample (generally made in muslin), which can help us to alter the garment according to your requests.
All creations are priced individually, depending on fabric, details and specified choices. Prices generally start at $1800 for a selection from my portfolio of designs, or $2500 for a made-to-order custom creation, including vintage renewal. Once you choose your fabrics and embellishments I can provide a final quote. Half of the total is due upon final approval of design and total is due upon delivery. The entire process is currently running 3-6 weeks.
I look forward to working with you and creating a special piece of wearable art that you will cherish for years to come.
