Reproductions, Bespoke Garments, Materials, & Timeless Heirlooms for Generations to Come

Custom Sewing & Design Work

By Sara Gonzalez

      This is where Your dream becomes reality! Whether you’re a bride looking for a custom-designed gown individually created for you, or a living historian wishing to have a reproduction of an extant gown, uniform, or flag (to everything in between!), this is the place for you. I’m pleased to say that your dream is mine, and I would be honored to bring it to life!
     For any piece, I work from pictures, fashion plates, sketches, detailed museum textile notes and up close visits, descriptions, or multiple conversations in person with you over cups of steaming tea or coffee!
     All my initial garment estimates are FREE of charge. For an estimate, or to find out more about the custom-garment process, please see The Process page or Contact me .
