Behind The Seams
As a designer it's important to have any and all women feel special and exceptionally beautiful in what they wear especially when its your garment. The process of designing a custom garment for a client is very exciting to me. The client has a clear vision of where she's going and how fabulous she would like to represent herself for that particular event.
The process starts with a consultation, my client and I get together to go over her vision and take measurements for that particular garment. I then create a mock version of the garment with fabric called muslin. My client comes for a second visit for her first fitting. Proper adjustments are made and making sure she's happy with the where its heading. Now I'm ready to cut and sew the actually "Fashion Fabric". On our third visit she comes in for a final fitting of the actual garment so I can make sure everything is on track and put the final touches or last minute adjustments before I finalize all hems, seam, etc. The final and last step is pick up day!!
