    Working with Takiyah was amazing. I was a bit nervous at first, as I found her via instagram, but from the time she opened the door I knew I picked the perfect person to make my dress. My dress was beyond beautiful and fit perfectly! If I ever need something else made I would use her again without any hesitation.

    Takiyah saved the day! We are so thankful for the professional and proficient service. My daughter's prom dress was the talk of the night. Thanks to Takiyah's vision and special touch that she provided. If you are looking for a great Seamstress with great prices, look no further! I will definitely continue to use her service.

    My experience with Takiyah Thomas of Ja De’Van Fashion has been simple exceptional. She really knows her stuff. Not only has she made me several garments that were absolutely beautiful and were a perfect fit, she also held a sewing class that has taught me allot and has built my passion for sewing. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to learn how to sew or wants that perfect dress that fits perfectly on your body. Just amazing!!!

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been sewing since I was 12, my mother is a seamstress, and her mother was a seamstress. So I guess you can say, "It's in my genes" :-) It wasn't until 2010 that I decided to sew for hire. The economy was bad, and I had a skill (sewing) that I wasn't using fully, that could help me support my family. So, it kind of took off from there.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Dresses, skirts, and alterations.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
My favorite story is that I got to make an informal wedding gown for a client. We had a few hiccups along the way, but everything worked out in the end. She invited me to her wedding and to see her walk down the isle in a garment that I made was truly gratifying :-)
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish that clients really comprehended how much time, effort, consideration, and detail goes into making a garment. When you buy a garment from a store, that garment went down an assembly line, and several peoples hands touched it/worked on it. But when you purchase a custom made garment, only one persons hand finished every detail to give you a beautiful finished product.
