That's my work, not me, in the photo (duh!). I have run a homebased sewing business for the last 19 years in Louisiana, which I am reopening in Austin Texas as SEWFITS. I've been in business for over 18 years, sewing for almost 50 years. If it doesn't violate the laws of physics, and if I'm not ashamed for my mom to see it, I can make it.

Work Experience:
I've made custom 17th century suits, Renaissance outfits, and science fiction/fantasy costumes. I've sewn everything from basic pants for a guy with a 60 inch waist, to authentic Louis XVI outfits for a guy with a much smaller waist. I've made Mardi Gras gowns and Elizabethan gowns with built in corsets. I've also copied clothing from movies (the suit worn by Madonna in Evita) and made copies of favorite garments.
