Ladies Dresses

            Our price includes optional right inseam pocket, all dress lengths are below the knee, according to your measurements. You purchase the  fabric of your choice using our EASY fabric guide yardage required based on 45 inch width fabric.  

          Custom Fitted Prices  include (when needed) zippers, thread and elastic, plain standard buttons , and shoulder pads. Decorative buttons of choice are to be supply by you.  Standard Cut Prices you supply all these notion items with the fabric of your choice. 

Ladies Belts

                     Our belts can complete an outfit. We use the same dress fabric. Our belts are washable, hold shape forever and generally out last the dress. We use two colored straight pins (to match dress) this holds belt together. It works real good making the belt adjustable. If you want hook and eyes we need the exact waist measurement, let us know. 
Belt price $7.50.

Cape Dresses

            A "Cape Dress" conceals the figure better than a regular dress and is the most modest dress we sew. The cape is sewn at the neck and waist only covering the front and back bodice. From the back the cape hides all straps and body lines. Our designs look pleasing and are comfortable to wear.

"Standard Cut Size Prices" limit any changes to 1"  (one inch) from those in the our Size Charts. If you are ordering a "Std. Cut Size Price" please put STANDARD CUT on your order form (which justifies the lower price) however on your BODY MEASUREMENTS portion of the order form be sure to give us your EXACT correct measurements so we can adjust an inch here and there. Std. Cut Size Price requires you to supply fabric and in addition to all NOTIONS: thread, and shoulder pads. We sometimes list a notions price option if required items such as zippers, buttons, elastic, bias tape, interfacing, and any other items you might have difficulty finding or we will bill exact cost of any of these items you fail to supply. Thank you for your understanding.
