GRADUATION / FORMAL WEAR EXPERIENCE

Every year, I have the joy of helping young men and women prepare for their school Graduation Formal, ensuring they look their absolute best.


Custom Made Gowns... I provide a range of services, including crafting custom-made formal gowns for individuals who struggle to find their desired style in retail and online stores.


During our consultation, we'll discuss your preferred style features, review pictures of designs you admire, and take precise body measurements. Typically, additional fittings may be required to ensure the gown is tailored to fit you flawlessly.

Alterations for perfect fit...

It's common for store-bought dresses or suits to not fit perfectly. Whether it's the length of the dress, even with the tallest heels, or the fit of men's suit pants and jacket sleeves, adjustments are often needed to achieve the ideal fit.


Additional alterations may also be necessary, such as resizing the bodice or smoothing the hip line, to ensure that the gown is tailored precisely to your unique shape.. .




Adding features such as creating or lengthening splits


Or adding a little bling around the waist to give that extra dazzle‼️

Men and women come in various sizes—of course! Sometimes, the bodice of a dress or top can be either too long or too short, resulting in a saggy neckline, shoulders slipping off, or excessive blousing when a fitted look is desired.

Some gowns have excess bra padding and some don’t have enough! Some plunge a little more than you might be comfortable with.

Gowns with long trains make a stunning entrance on stage or at the reception, but once the "party" begins, bustling the train allows you to dance freely without worrying about your dress being stepped on.


Certain gowns with exceptionally full hemlines are enhanced with "Horsehair" stitched into the hem, providing the gown with added movement and elegance. Deb is highly experienced in incorporating and altering gowns with Horsehair, ensuring impeccable results.





The photos and videos showcased here offer just a glimpse of the numerous Graduates I've assisted in the past. With my extensive experience, I confidently undertake alterations for all styles of garments, including those adorned with sequins. 💖




The gown displayed above features a hemline crafted with "horsehair," resulting in a stunningly full and swirling skirt. To accommodate the desired length, the gown had to be shortened, necessitating the removal and reattachment of the horsehair to the new hemline. The outcome was truly beautiful, and the customer was delighted with this alteration, along with the other adjustments made to ensure a perfect fit..

Tailoring for men’s suits I also offer tailoring services for men's formal suits. Adjusting the length of jacket sleeves and pants for store-bought suits is a common request. Given that we come in all different sizes, the industry often produces garments for taller individuals. It's generally easier to make something smaller than to enlarge it.

Men's pants can also be let out or taken in as needed. Another frequent request I receive is to slim the width of the pants, especially if the lower pant leg is flared and the wearer prefers a more tapered, straight pant leg.

Shortening the sleeves of a formal suit jacket, which often features lining and a false tab opening with multiple buttons on the sleeve, requires both experience and skill. Rest assured, you can trust Deb to handle this alteration with precision and expertise, ensuring a professional finish that restores the jacket to its original design state.

Additional alterations encompass shortening shirt sleeves, whether they feature standard or French cuffs, with the adjustment being seamlessly executed and undetectable.


If necessary, the jacket can also be tailored to achieve a closer fit and shortened in length.


When purchasing suits, it's advisable to opt for a larger size rather than a smaller one if you find yourself between sizes.


Furthermore, I offer the creation of men's neckties and pocket handkerchiefs, providing the perfect opportunity to coordinate with your date's dress.

Steaming formal wear In addition, I provide professional steaming services for formal wear. Steaming not only refreshes garments but also removes wrinkles without risking damage to delicate fabrics that can occur with ironing.


This service is available for both men's suits and formal gowns, whether other alterations have been provided by iSew4U or if you simply require steaming.

I trust that I've conveyed my level of expertise, and I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to help you look your very best for your upcoming Graduation Formal.
