Fashion Show Party


FASHION SHOW PARTY IS NOW READY.

GO TO OUR FASHION  SHOW  PARTY WEBPAGE TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING. 
                                                                           
                     OR................ read below about how we got started.

Shortening a Wedding Gown at the waist

Shortening at the waist
A gown that has beautiful lace/ beading or embroidery/beading along the hem must be shortened at the waist.  Most of the time this alteration is not as difficult as it sounds. Usually the manufacturer will attached the skirt with one row of stitches.  In the case of the recent gown I worked, the manufacturer had overlapped and serged several layers of fabric, then added more layers and serged again.   It was a bit of a mess and quite time consuming to take apart.

Saving an internet purchase

What great week we've been having.  The bridesmaid and wedding gowns are coming along smoothly.  Our customers are so pleased with the progress on the corset back additions to the gowns.  In addition to wedding party items we had a very interesting request to look at an Internet purchased pair of jeans.  The cost to return these too small jeans would be costly.  I agreed to see what I could do.  The jeans were already decorated at the waist and the pockets, and had the torn look on the front legs with flower patches beneath.

Updated testimonials

Today I updated my testimonials page.  I hope you visit there and read what a few people are saying about Deb's Sewing Service.  It's worth more than anything in the world to hear how much you are appreciated.  For some reason, hearing the words are good, but when I see it in writing it really sinks in.  It is my honor to share my gift of sewing with my clients, friends and family.  Thank you all again for the kind words.  
Very sincerely yours, Deb

Interesting alterations

 Although Deb's Sewing Service specializes in Wedding and Formal gowns, we still provide basic alterations for casual clothing. Our business started out helping friends, family and neighbors with simple projects. We continue to provide excellent service for all kinds of projects.
 
I mended two pairs of jeans for a young high school student this week. The ripped look is really in style but those rips got out of control. I mended them with patches on the back and left all the fray and stringy threads as per the request of my young client.

Great ideas

I'm learning more every day from the site builder; how to build a better site.  I've found some super suggestions that have sparked a few awesome ideas of my own.  I'm looking forward to working on adding them very soon.  In the mean time....have new wedding dress and brides maid customers coming later this evening and need to get back to working on the current projects.
