Custom Garment & Alteration Services
Repairs and Alterations
I offer specialty repair and alteration services for people who wish to preserve, re-style, or adapt cherished items of clothing and other textiles. I love to save special garments from the landfill and find creative ways to give them a second life.
Pillows, quilts, and stuffed animals made from the clothes of loved ones who have passed on can be a way to hold their memory close and re-purpose the material things they left behind. I am always honoured to be trusted with creating memory pieces, and I promise to treat your loved one's garments with the utmost care.
Gender Affirming Clothing Alterations
I first started doing gender-affirming clothing alterations a few years ago, at the request of friends. Removing bust darts, adjusting shoulders, and straightening or contouring the silhouette of a garment can make a world of difference in comfort and fit. These alterations are available by donation.
