Couture Services


Can you tell the viewers a little about yourself and what Couture Service is????

            I’m originally from the D.C. area, born and bred. I moved South twenty plus years ago. I have had the opportunity to work in the apparel industry, in several positions from sewing machine operator, to production engineer. My favorite title was “Sewing Specialist, but I was never more happy, than when I was at the machine. Sewing for me is both, a passion, and a natural ability. Couture Service specializes in: the design and production of fashionable high-quality custom-made turbans, fashion accessories, and crochet. Custom-made clothing is also available.

You have experience in sewing, can you tell us a little bit about how you began?
            My great aunt noticed my passion, and let me sit at her sewing machine at the age of 5. I took sewing in Jr. High School. You should have seen some of my projects. Looking back, they were a nightmare, but I was oh, so PROUD! My mom gave me my first sewing machine when I was 18, and I  have been on a spree ever since! I have my Mom to thank, I  have never been without a sewing machine, since that pink, straight stitch Atlas, she purchased for me. Mom is now long deceased.

            Believe it, or not, I am 3 years returning from a ten year hiatus. I had not touched a sewing machine in all that time! That is the good thing about a gift. No matter how long you are gone, it is always there waiting for you to return!

            As I mentioned before, I do have sewing experience. 30 years + experience from apparel industry as well as Couture Service. When you are looking for the experience behind the work Couture Service provides that.

How did Couture Service start?

I began Couture Service more than 30 years ago as a way to fulfill my passion and second nature. The name was not chosen until February 2010, when someone introduced me to Etsy, and suggested I sell my items on there. Couture Service is unique in that it offers a variety of services: Pattern making, pattern sizing, custom sewing, custom crochet, as well as ready to buy now items.

Do you have a favorite item or material? 

My favorite items to work with are crocheted lace as I find it to be very challenging, yet beautiful when finished. You have a wide range of ways to create lace from Clouce Caps to Shawls and Pull Over’s. Crocheted Lace gives you a wide range of opportunities as well as challenges.
