Concord, CA
My IFR Listing

My sewing experience covers a variety of projects over many years - sewing for myself and others, alterations and special projects. Since moving to California I have done contract sewing (from Craig's List).

For a Sacramento company, I redesigned existing products, made samples and master patterns for manufacturing in China.

I helped set up an in-home business for a person who wanted to market medical scrubs. I tailored commercial patterns to make them unique, selected the fabric and cut and sewed the garments.

I worked for 7 months in 2007 for a start-up company in Concord that specializes in custom western clothing. My job was to design and apply the rhinestone embellishment for the leather collar and cuffs, as well as stone the garment body. I also did pattern drafting, sewed leather chaps, and various other projects, such as completing the sewing of a heavy canvas vendor booth that was constructed in velcro'd sections for easy assembly and take-down.

For the past several months in 2008, I have contracted with a San Rafael company sewing their clothing line.

I have a great in-home workshop with sewing machine, serger and work tables. I am located just off 680 in Concord.

You can reach me through this email address if you think I might be appropriate for your project.

We talk about their wishes for the fabric and take measurements. Usually there are 1-3 fittings, during which the design and fit is fine tuned.

I have made everything from dresses, suits, ball gowns, costumes, and wedding dresses, I've designed costumes for the Westernaires and David Copperfield. My alterations on existing garments are well done and fairly priced. I haven't changed my alterations prices in 20 years because I want my services to be affordable for everyone.

I have been sewing for over ten years and am currently getting my own design business going. I own a high–quality sewing machine and have years of experience designing and altering clothes for men, women and children. After some success with my Etsy shop, I am currently moving forward in the process of researching the most effective promotion and marketing techniques in the industry.

I have been designing clothes for over ten years and have been selling them on Etsy for about six months. I began designing for myself, wanting classic, stylish and comfortable clothes that flattered my figure and that were much "cooler" than those I saw in the corporate stores and boutiques (and, therefore, on many of those around me). I wanted unique clothes that I could wear for elegant dinners, around the house, hiking, going out on the town and going to festivals. When I started to realize that many of my friends wanted the same and they started making requests, Starletfire Designs was born. I enjoy being able to offer high–quality handmade clothing that is ethically created and sold (at a reasonable price), and it feels good to know that my clients have one–of–a–kind pieces that they cherish.

My IFR Listing

My aim is to assist each client in finding a unique style of clothing that is both functional and flattering.

I create a pattern from your individual measurements, and refine it through fittings. Once we find the cut that works for you, any number of garments can be created from your pattern in a variety of styles and fabrics.

My custom clothing addresses several points:

Individual style; you are involved in choosing the design, the fabric, the color.

Good fit; many women wear a non-standard size (some are not even aware of this) and have difficulty finding clothing (particularly pants and dresses) that fit.

Lifestyle; do you do a lot of walking? Like to be out in the rain? Never go to the drycleaner? Work with children? Want to be able to go to the office and hop on your bike without changing? Need a dress for a spring wedding that you can wear again in the winter? All of these issues will be addressed throughout the design process.

Born and raised in the suburbs New Jersey. From her mother and grandmothers skilled in sewing to other close relatives involved in some form of design or modeling, there’s no way, Renee Michele would not have at least taken a dab in fashion during her life–time. Even from a very young age, being dissatisfied with the selection of clothing for her dolls, Renee would sketch and assemble original garments for them. Renee made the definite decision to pursue the art of Fashion at the young age of 11. She received a degree in Design and Tailoring in 1992. She also attended Philadelphia College of Textile and Science (currently known as Philadelphia University) majoring in fashion design. During her education she received various awards for garment construction and graduated with the ‘most promising designer’ award. Renee has had the privilege of being taught and mentored by a Parson’s alumni. This allows her to present her craft in confidence. Directly out of school, Renee focused on mainly alterations and t–shirt design. Soon after making the transition of moving to Nashville, TN in 2000, she began styling for numerous musicians. Being a performing artist by right herself, Renee empathizes the importance to establish ‘a brand’ or unique look an artist/ musician must present before their audience and label executives. Renee Michele’s style would be defined as fresh and elegant. Knowing that trends come and go, she designs and styles with newness and longevity in mind. Currently, Renee Michele is co–founder of MysFitt, a lifestyle company. Amongst her busy schedule, she styles and designs for both new and established performing artists in the Nashville area.

I have been sewing since I was 13. I first began cosplaying in 2000, and was introduced to Japanese Street Fashion through a friend later that same year. I started off learning about Gothic Lolita, but in 2004, began learning ParaPara and was introduced to the Gyaru world. My favorite looks are Oneegyaru and Himegyaru, but I have been spotted wearing Kogyaru on occasion.

My Brand, Princess Heart, is best described as ideal for "the ultimate girly-girl all grown up". From the sweetest of Sweet Lolita to the pink-scheme Decora outfits, Princess Heart is for the Japanese Street Fashion entusiast who is not afraid of her feminine side. Princess Heart also features Infant and Children's clothing, costumes, and home decor, because "we all deserve to feel like Princesses".

Hi, my name is Sharon Adam and my business is "Creative Windows and Walls". My location is Smyrna, TN.

I make custom draperies, and clothes of all kinds. I have been sewing for over 30 years. I am a mother and a grandmother and I love to paint and sew. I had a custom drapery business for about 12 years when all my children were still at home. After my children grew up and left home I went back to school and received my BFA degree in painting. I graduated from MTSU in December of 2005. I have just recently decided to start my own business again and have decided to do both draperies and murals for kids room. I have been making my own clothes since the age of 13. After years of sewing for my own children and now my grandchildren I feel there is nothing I can't make.

Thanks, Sharon

This May my Etsy store and I were featured on Threadbanger Blog. I am currently involved in Layin' in the Cut and Austin Fashion Week MLW Malissa Long Wearables. Custom work, samples, and patterns are $20 per hour, production work is by the piece(minimum 10 pieces per style, size may vary), usually averages about $15 per hour. Examples,an average dress would be 2–3 hours cut and sew, a simple wedding dress would be about 20 hours without a pattern. E–mail me a picture or good description for a quote.

I'm not your usual "RTW" designer, nor do I always work with conventional materials. I've been designing clothes since I was 12. I stopped for awhile but got back into it when I really got into fashion photography. I have yet to duplicate a piece so anything you see on the site is an origional piece. I do custom orders, I do occassionaly do an entire collection of different styles or pieces as well that I keep in stock. I do sell of pieces once I've photographed them.

I love design so much that I decided to go ahead and get my bachelor's in women's fashion from the Academy of Art in San Fransisco, I don't have it yet but I love the school. I spend a lot of free time in my sewing studio creating all kinds of different looks, some wearable some are just for show.

Don't hesitate to drop me an email if you have any questions.
