Welcome to my website! As a 4th generation seamstress behind the sewing machine by the age of 5, I continuously strive to perfect my craft and enjoy the challenges that come along with every project I take on from bridal couture to softgoods product design.
My formal education began with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Industrial Design and continued at Los Angeles Trade Tech for fashion technical design. I moved back to Pittsburgh to start my own business while working within the community to advance fashion in this great city.

Here is a short list of the services that I offer:

  • Couture garment creation from design to completion
  • Custom wedding gowns and special event gowns
  • Garment re-creation based on an existing piece or a photograph
  • Upcycling and/or restyling of existing garments
  • Alterations of existing garments,mostly women’s wear
  • Costume design and construction using such materials as latex, foam, leather, fur etc.
  • Pattern-making and prototyping
  • Soft goods product design
  • Fabrication (view my gallery to get a sense of my full skill set)
