CUSTOM APPAREL DESIGN
" I can't say enough wonderful things about Kristina. I started using Kristina about a year ago. I am a taller woman, work in downtown Chicago, and could not find any decent clothes to wear to work. Kristina has designed, and altered existing patterns for me, copied my favorite pair of pants and made a pattern - her talents are amazing! My work wardrobe has certainly improved immensely - I have pants that fit properly both in the rise and the length, jackets that have amazing details, crop pants that are the right length, and blouses that are amazing.
Kristina's sense of style, color choices, and unexpected detailing keeps my clothes interesting, and timeless. Right now Kristina is making an adorable Chanel-like jacket for spring - can't wait to see this! It will be another fabulous piece to add to my wardrobe!
In addition, I had the wonderful experience of being Mother of the Bride last year. Knowing that I could never find something suitable in a store, I bought a dress pattern that needed to have 31 pieces altered in order for the pattern to fit. The pattern was absolutely stunning and Kristina made the dress absolutely more stunning with her suggestions to tweak little things here and there. I felt like a million bucks in my dress. It fit like a glove. Everyone complimented me on the finished product - even my ex-husband! The dress had roses on the shoulders and the right hip.
Kristina worked on those roses for hours until she came up with just the right size, shape, and design for each rose. And, just so we didn't waste any fabric, Kristina made me a shawl that just took my breath away - it was a stunning addition to the dress. Kristina also made me a purse to match the dress and shawl. Just thinking about that dress makes me smile! I've also been trying to change a few things in my house. So a few weeks ago, Kristina made me pillows for my living room couch and chair, and she made me a piano bench cover. The workmanship is wonderful. Again, the attention to detail just makes the pieces look even more fabulous in my living room. I would recommend Kristina for any tailoring, sewing, or designing project! Don't even hesitate - just call her!"
