If you choose to have something custom made from Carole, this is the process: you bring in either a photo, a “tear out” from a magazine, or part of a garment you love, and she will make your look come to life.


You can bring in your own fabric or Carole can source the material for you. Carole will take your measurements and after a fitting or two, your special creation will fit you “like a glove”.

At each step, Carole will consult with you to make certain this custom creation reflects your style. 

Its just like having your own personal designer!

Joyce Iyawe

Love my flowy top. Not only does it compliment my figure, I get so much compliments from others. I love that she can design & sew African fashions too! Thanks Carole!

Prices range due to the numbers of layers (lined or unlined), type of finish, type of fabric, and width of hem (extra wide skirt, dress or legs, etc.).
