About Rebecca'a Sewing Service

Hello, I am a seamstress. I do custom sewing, also called custom clothier or custom dressmaker.

My task is to sew garments "With a Pattern" for individual clients.
Services include, but are not limited to, formal wear, children's clothing, men's wear, dance wear, costumes, choir robes, women's wear, high-couture clothing, plus-sized clothing, sewing for handicapped individuals, home decors, specially-made pillows, shower curtains, bed covers, and other bedding materials.

I also handle everything from bags to toys. I can replace a zipper and make clothes for dogs and other pets. Tears in Teddy Bears. I will also do alterations and repairs if needed. (I need the practice)

I am also willing to teach you to sew. It is not hard at all unless you want to sew something really fancy or you want a challenge.

YOU provide the pattern and fabric.

Thank you.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Custom sewing, also called custom clothier or custom dressmaker. My task is to sew garments with a pattern for individual clients.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Simple Alteration on a wedding gown and fixed a few beads that where falling off. Client called other services for the alteration only and they wanted $75 to $180. Gave her a choice between $10 to $20. It was a simple fix.

Custom made Satin babby bunny Doll with hand sewn face. (Satin is a smooth, glossy fabric,)
was very happy with the results.

sewn batten holes on the bottom of shirts for a client suffering from diabetes to keep his socks up and his shirts tucked. grate idea really.

Reupholstering couch cushions and sewn windows curtains for a Hostel along with small jobs there customers needed on there favored clothing before they moved along to the next Hostel.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Always have the seamstress measure you for accurate fittings of clothing or alterations. Never attempt to measure yourself and give the measurements to to seamstress it always ends up as a bad fitting.

Sheets, pillow cases and blankets only need the measurements of the items they will belong to. Make certain on how much of an overhang you want on the items. a few fabrics need stitch testing depending on the fabric such as Corduroy, Denim, Nylon, and Velvet.

For repairs or custom made Leather, Suede or Artificial leather items, you wold need to go to a professional leather-worker. leather needs a strong Leather Sewing Machines & leather-working machinery for the Leather and Tack Trades.

Clients must provide all fabric zippers buttons snaps thread stuffing lining patterns, so on. economy is getting prity bad and and the poor are getting poorer there for I cannot provide cloth or items.

Thank you.
