Sara's Profile

About

*Proud members of TeamBPAL!*

My name is Sara, I live in Los Angeles and I love to create all kinds of things. I worked in the bespoke clothing business with my mom in England for ten years before crossing the pond, and this etsy store is a chance for us to collaborate again by designing and creating together. It's what we do best. =)

We are not hobby dressmakers or creators- we do this professionally. We decided to represent our work here on etsy because it offers unlimited possibilities.. Well, that and we got hooked on buying here! We think we're asking fair prices based on the skill level, workmanship and quality of materials used. We also work very hard to ensure the best possible fit on our bespoke, designed and made to order items. Past experience has taught us that having fittings in person doesn't always ensure a well made garment or one that fits -…

We also work very hard to ensure the best possible fit on our bespoke, designed and made to order items. Past experience has taught us that having fittings in person doesn't always ensure a well made garment or one that fits - we've helped customers out last minute after a dressmaker's disaster often enough to know. That said, if you're in the United Kingdom or the Los Angeles area we're more than happy to conduct one fitting in person by request.

I covet and collect beautiful things, clever things, whether it's paper goods, homewares, accessories, couture or even a nicely decorated cupcake! I'm a big fan of style in general and can't stop myself from creating and collecting things that strike my fancy. I hate to see anything badly made and consider all shapes and sizes to be beautiful. After all, variety is the spice of life.

My mother has been sewing for most of her life, and has been designing and creating made to order clothing professionally for the last twenty five years. She has won several awards for her bridal work, but still considers happy customers to be the best accolade. She's a fabric snob, a perfectionist, blunt to a fault and is an avid collector of netsuke and great handbags.
