Made to order garments, re-styling, alterations, up-cycling, shopping
Swatch meeting with Mané Larraguibel for her purple dress. We were trying to find colors to complement her new shoes.
Leslie Roybal had several fittings for her ombré flamenco style wedding gown. Photo above shows the first fitting in muslin.
These are charged by the hour. After a fitting, garments are hemmed, tightened, loosened or re-styled.
Celia La's purchased wedding gown needed to be shortened and taken in. This involved removing lace motifs and re-applying them after the dress was hemmed.
Xianix Barrera's flamenco dress was re-shaped and re-cut. Looks like a new dress!!
Need a dress? Or shoes, whatever you need to complete your look.
This silk chiffon gown was sourced and shortened for Jenny Lee Mitchell's wedding.
Services,what can I do for you?
A great idea for those out of style flamenco costumes in the back of your closet that you bought years ago !
Made to order
Getting a garment custom made means that I am making something to your measurements and with your design sensibility.
Do you want your dress to have a lot of ruffles?
Do you have a favorite color you would like to use?
Do you want sleeves?
How does this work?
Look at my gallery pictures for inspiration . All of my dresses are one of a kind but I can make a dress similar to anything pictured.
Contact me through email, phone, or Zoom and let's talk design.
The next step will be selecting fabric.
Next I will need your measurements.
I will give you a price quote . Once I have received a 50% deposit, work can start.
My studio is in Brooklyn,NY. I do fittings there or in mid-town Manhattan. If you are too far away for fittings, I will make the garment to fit the supplied measurements but cannot guarantee the same fit.
Dinorah Crespo bought this flamenco dress in Spain. It was 3 sizes too big as well as being too long!
An up-cycled garment is one that uses existing clothing to create something new. It's fun and good for the planet.
Check out my Up-Cycle gallery for more samples.
Here I have appliquéd roses unto a vintage T shirt and combined it with my ombré ruffled skirt
Laura Reinhardt brought my this antique mantilla. I made it into a dress for her to dance the guajira.
