Whether you are a bride or a cowboy (or both!), Barbara Stone Designs can take care of your alterations.
In business for over 30 years, Barbara has worked with more than three decades of bridal fashion. From refitting and restyling vintage dresses to basic alterations on the latest styles, she can do the work you need to make your dress and your day unique.
Barbara can also help the entire bridal party with their alterations: dresses for bridesmaids, mothers, and flower girls, as well as last-minute changes on tuxedos for the groomsmen and fathers.
“Once I commit to a bride, I will do whatever it takes to get her wedding party ready for her big day. Brides almost always have last minute adjustments, whether it’s for a pregnant bridesmaid or a family member coming from out of town. I always allow time for whatever she may need.”
“Although my portfolio shows some of the more complex projects I have tackled, I also do the basics: hems, repairs, replacing zippers. I have experience with all men and women’s clothing. I hem and repair jeans; tailor coats and jackets; hem sleeves on blouses and men’s shirts.
“I tailored at the Men’s Wearhouse for several years, so I have a LOT of experience with men’s suits and shirts. In fact, many of the men I worked with there followed me when I went out on my own again.
“I’ve also done repairs and alterations on ski wear and leather jackets. Zipper replacement is something I do a lot of.
“I have worked with every fabric imaginable, from chiffon and tulle prom dresses, to denim and leather jackets. Stretch fabrics are popular lately so I recently invested in a cover stitch sewing machine so I could do a proper stretch hem for dresses and tops. It makes a nice stitch and will stretch with the wearer.”
