Once a Seamstress, Always a Seamstress


Some of our most favorite customers are seamstresses.

Ms. Louise brought in a dress she had made in her younger days.

Ms. Louise hand sewed the gold threads onto this still gorgeous black dress. The collar and shawl both had fine handwork that looked great on the front and the back. The technique is called "couching".

Ms. Louise loved talking "shop" about sewing and explained that she wore the dress to parties back in the day.

Ninety plus years young, she still appreciates a garment that fits well and was having her dress slacks altered to fit.
