All about “Classic Tailors”
Classic Tailors is fashion studio of vintage inspired clothing. Originally inspired by the rich history of the resourceful depression era homemaker, I started with clothing made from old feed, seed, & flour sacks. Then fell in love with all the vintage textiles I was finding at garage sales, flea markets, and antique stores. You have to come see what I can do with an old dish towel or dresser scarf! All clothing is designed and sewn at my sewing studio in NE Minneapolis. You will also find eco-chic clothing from repurposed textiles. So hang out with me for a while and soak up some good.
The “Classic Tailor” style is retro, quirky, resourceful and individual. Buying a garment from Classic Tailors is a quietly fun rebellion against mass-production and fashion dictated from on high.

My garments are:
 Affordable – you purchase direct from us, the manufacturer
 Guaranteed – money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied
 High quality – made from quality fabrics with careful attention to detail
 Supporting our local economy – I use local dressmakers for a fair price to help me do the sewing.
 Unique – many pieces are ‘one-of-a-kind’, just like you!
So WHO is the “Classic Tailor”?
Sally Jane Fritz
I have an obsession with vintage textiles, clothing, and fabric. I started sewing before I could talk, becoming an accomplished seamstress at a young age. Now days I am a middle aged, stressed-out, small business owner, night-owl, and dog lover addicted to Spider Solitaire. Sewing is my yoga. It doesn’t make my waistline smaller but it does clear my head. I enjoy designing and derive great satisfaction in knowing I DO know how to sew.
I studied Costume Design at the University of Minnesota. Interned with a tailor making custom menswear and went crazy sewing in the Bridal industry for many years before opening my own business in 1979 and becoming a full-time eccentric.
I love meeting and talking to my customer friends face to face and would love to meet you too. You can get in touch with me at my studio at 612-377-5251 (afternoons, I don’t do mornings well at all) :)
