Sew What?

I offer several solutions for your clothing challenges. Here are a few of them that people seem to need the most. If you need some seamstress work that’s not listed here, call me and together we’ll see if we can get you fixed right up!

Mending and Repairs ~

Mary can sew and mend your damaged garments.

A Stitch in Time …

Sometimes you need just a little stitch or two, and sometimes it’s more involved. I sew and mend torn or separated seams, such as on shirt sleeves. You might need a pocket repaired or replaced, or even some buttons that need reattached or snaps that need replaced. I can help you with that.

Your favorite jacket or pair of pants may have a broken zipper. No need to throw the clothing out. I can replace the old zipper with one that’s just the right size. The process is a bit involved because the garment must be disassembled to some degree. But in most cases, the zipper can be replaced with no problem.

Steve is always wearing holes in his jeans. If you have some work pants that need patched, give me a call today. I can sew a patch or two on them on them.

Alterations ~

Made to Fit You Sew Good!

First impressions count. There are times when you really need to look your best. Job interviews, social gatherings and even first dates are occasions where your first impression makes a big difference.

There are several reasons why you might need alterations done to your clothes:

• You may have slimmed down and now your clothes don’t fit quite right.

• You tried on a dress at the store, but when you got it home it didn’t look the same.

• You might have bought something a little large because it was on sale. Now it’s time to make it fit you and your style.

Whatever the case, I can help you get the garment fitted to suit you. Clothes come off the rack “One size fits all,” but we can custom sew it for your individual needs.

We’ll take some measurements, do some figuring and adjustment, and soon you’ll be walking out with clothing that will make a great first impression, no matter what the occasion. Be sure to check out these alteration tips.

And New Stuff, Too!

Mary can sew new clothes for you.

Arts, Crafts and Clothing

Of course, any seamstress is always working on some new items as well. I’ve made several quilts for family, craft fairs and individuals. My dog vests have been a hit at pet adoption events all around northwestern Arkansas. Even Santa Claus needed a new suit and came to Mary’s Sew & So!

I’m always on the lookout for new, interesting projects and I’ll be sharing some of them with you in my blog. For examples of some of my more challenging projects, check out the “Sewed These” pages.
