Sewing classes

Sewing classes

Students will learn basic sewing skills to create their own personalized project.  We recommend that each student bring a sewing machine that will be used at home. There are sewing machines available for rent in studio. First come first served. Fabric and clothing patterns will not be provided but we do have some options available for purchase in studio.

Upholstery

Upholstery

We will help you reimagine your upholstery when time has taken its toll on your favorite small to mid size pieces of furniture. If you have a chair that has seen better days, don’t throw it out just yet. You might be able to save it by having it recovered and restuffed. You can even change the type, pattern and color of the upholstery when you do this, so it will look as good as the day you bought it.

Made to Measure

Made to Measure

Made-to-measure clothing will be well-fitted to your figure and gives you the opportunity to customize your fabric and detailing. Your measurements are first taken by our seamstress. Then you will select a base pattern that corresponds with those measurements. This base pattern will be altered to match your dimensions and your garment will then be constructed from this altered pattern. After the garment is rendered, there will be at least two fittings to ensure perfection. When we have reached that goal, your experience is complete.

Formal Alterations

Formal Alterations

Formal Alteration requests can be made for almost any part or article of clothing.  Whether we tailor or repair, we examine the extent of the changes that are needed and mark the fabric accordingly. Gowns, suits, clergy and military only.

Arrie Seals

Owner

Arries’ love for fashion was first kindled in high school at

the age of 16, when she received her first sewing machine. 

Following Graduation Arrie took her first sewing classes. 

Within a short amount of time, she found herself making most

of her own clothing and alterations for close friends and family. 

In response to the many inquiries about where she was buying

her outfits she began to form her business.  “My inspiration 

comes from a love inside of me to help others build 

confidence and a personal sense of style.”

Testimonials

Arrie did an amazing job once again on altering another dress for me but this time it’s my bridal gown for my big day!  I wouldn’t even consider another seamstress to get me right for my wedding.  You are so deserving of a 5 star rating for you professionalism, promptness, sewing skills, and great customer service!

I’m so glad I cam upon Arrie with Twelve Tailoring.  I recently became a new homeowner and was in desperate need of help with altering my drapes.  Arrie so graciously cam to my home and assisted in measuring 10 of my drapes. She then had them hemmed and back to me in one week-fantastic turn-around time.  And all with confidence and a big smile on her face! She was a joy to work with and because of her, that stress has been lifted off my shoulder.  I look forward to hiring her in the future to not only hem drapes, but also bridesmaids dresses, etc.  I definitely recommend her and plan to refer her to my friends.  Thanks Arrie

Arrie, I can’t thank you enough.  I greatly appreciate you and your work!  I felt and looked amazing last night.  I got two phone calls earlier today just because they wanted to personally tell me how great I looked.  The likes and comments continue to grow. May God continue to bless you, your business, mind and your hands.  Prosperity surrounds you forever. -Many thanks -King
