Zipper Whisperer

"Oh my golly! First Irene is a kind warm welcoming presence AND she is a zipper whisperer!! She fixed my precious jacket in 15 seconds! However the best part is that she brings her heart and her years in human services and sewing to expand how we can learn from our clothes! How awesome.  Gowns, ripped items and fitting needs are all up her alley! Suggestion drop in and meet this diamond of a woman!!"

Wedding Dress Joy

"Irene Altered my wedding dress and it came out perfect.  Not only is her work amazing but she made sure to take the time to speak with me, find out exactly what I wanted, and was extremely budget friendly.  My entire experience from start to finish was wonderful and I'm so glad I chose her to do my alterations.  She even helped me find the right bra and ran down to Top Drawer during our appointment to get someone to help fit me properly!  She finished my gown quickly but you can tell the amount of time she spent paying attention detail.  Would definitely recommend!"
