Professional sewing for all your sewing projects.

“Megan has helped me express the real me by fitting my ideas to my body shape, …she’s given me confidence”
— Sue J.

Prices below are starting prices. Some garments or projects are more complex than others.  For example, making  a wedding dress vs. a pencil skirt. Because each project is unique, I will let you know what to expect financially so you can decide if you want to continue.

Depending on the scale and scope of the project a deposit may be required to start.

Rush Jobs can be accommodated and will be bid according to client needs and deadline.
