Very great to work with. I was nervous sending my wedding dress to a stranger but once I started talking with her I totally trusted Anna. The dress came out beautifully and she really made sure it was perfect. I cannot wait to show this dress off at my daughters baptism

From Friends to Customers

It all started when I began making Civil War reenacting dresses for my friends in college. All of them told me that I should sell my dresses and make dresses for other people in the reenacting community.

Then I started working at a fabric store and I would get dozens of people a week asking for someone who does alterations or makes custom garments. I started taking on clients and branched out from historical reproductions. I've made custom bridesmaids dresses, wedding gowns, summer dresses, purses/backpacks, Halloween costumes, and much more.

A lot of my work is usually done without a pattern or with a pattern as the outline for something much more custom and original. With my costume design degree I am able to create custom garments without patterns. One client had me recreate a swimsuit cover up that she really liked based on a very old one that was falling apart.

I just love creating! I love challenges! Anna's Attire is about making people's dreams a reality.

Hi everyone! Welcome to Anna's Attire.

There is a certain charm in expressing yourself with something unique to who you are. That charm drives my passion for designing and sewing custom and original creations. Through Anna’s Attire, I can turn people’s clothing dreams into a reality, and allow them to express themselves through what they wear.

Costumes and historical reproductions are my favorite projects, as they allow me to combine my passion for sewing with my knowledge of history and fashion. I can make you whoever you want to be, whether it’s a Disney® princess, a proper southern belle, a renaissance jester or noble, or a mighty barbarian.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you.

Most creations will usually be fixable depending on the flaw and I will pay for shipping back and forth if that should be the case.

Pre-made items are sized as is and measurements are always included so please be aware of these measurements before purchase.
