Custom Clothing, Jackets, and Gowns
The term "Custom Clothing" has many meanings in these days of fast fashion. It is much more than picking a fabric and having it sewn somewhere overseas. True custom is a process of an individual design, personal measurements, pattern making, fabric choice, cutting, sewing and finishing details. Most importantly, you as the client are included in every step to ensure you are presented with the finished garment that you imagined with an impeccable fit.
Tissú Fine Fabrics & Design Gallery offers the pleasure of authentic, made-to-measure custom clothing from casual "knock-abouts" to formal occasion wear and one of a kind wedding dresses. Contact us to set up your consultation, which includes free measurements.
Creating your Custom Garment
Everyone has their own unique, individual style and fit needs. Sometimes the process of finding the perfect piece of clothing can be a frustrating and difficult experience. At Tissu' we take your inspiration and use our pattern making expertise to create that special garment, that fits like a glove, for any occasion.
The process begins with a consultation to discuss your design ideas. We look through all your inspirations and create a fashion sketch that reflects the silouette and details of your one-of-a-kind garment. Next, extensive measurements are taken to facilitate the drafting of your personal pattern. Afterwards we will walk you through the best fabrics and embellishments to suit your project, while keeping your budget in mind.
The first fitting will be executed in muslin or a similar fabric that will mimic the fashion fabric used in the finished piece. This is the time when fitting adjustments are made and any other details can be noted in the construction. Sometimes there will be two or more of these preliminary fittings to ensure an impecable fit and include any design changes that may be necessary.
Last, the garment is constructed from the fashion fabrics. Any embellishments are added for the final detail fitting. All finishing touches like the hems, bustle, trims are noted for completion.
Your dream has come true! Your unique design, the fabrics you love and an impeccable fit all incorporated into the garment you have watched grow from inception to completion.
