About US

Ella Back in the vibrant ’80s, as an eight-year-old, the captivating workings of the vintage Singer sewing machines held my fascination. Its small spindle, reminiscent of a wheel positioned at the top, was intricately linked to a robust leather belt. This belt, driven by a foot pedal placed beneath the machine, was the heart that powered the Singer, turning it from a mere device into a creator of beautiful apparel. Each day, my mother would sit, completely engrossed in her sewing projects, working her magic to craft dresses for my siblings and me. Her dedication was unwavering, her work continued until the final stitch graced the fabric, and the garment came to life. No sooner had my mother risen from her chair, I would eagerly take her spot. My feet would find their place on the pedal as I watched, enchanted by the rhythm of the rising and falling needle. It was this same year, driven by this fascination and a strong desire to create, that I completed my very first sewing project.

Today, my passion and expertise in sewing have allowed me to cater to a wide range of clients, from local families to illustrious figures in society. Among my clientele, I am proud to include celebrities, professional politicians, and even state and national pageant winners. Each project I undertake, whether for a star on the red carpet or a young girl’s first dress, I imbue with the same love and dedication that I first learned from my mother. Three decades have since passed, yet my passion for working with garments remains as robust as ever. I’ve taken on countless projects, each one a unique challenge and an opportunity to expand my skills. I’ve crafted everything from elaborate costumes to elegant dresses for my daughter, from practical items like my husband’s remote caddy to decorative pieces like curtains and sofa covers. I’ve even dabbled in crafting kitchen essentials, creating pot holders and other accessories. If you can envision it, I’ve likely sewn it. Throughout my journey, I’ve held firm to the belief that sewing is a fundamental skill that everyone should acquire – akin to learning how to drive. Embarking on the journey of sewing, one usually starts with manual stitches, each one crafted with care and patience. As you grow and evolve, you gradually transition to an electric sewing machine, which opens up a whole new world of possibilities. In life, everyone will at some point face a moment when a button comes loose or a pair of pants need hemming. It’s at these moments that the skill of sewing becomes invaluable. Not only does it provide a practical solution, but it also fosters a sense of self-reliance and independence. It’s my hope that more people come to appreciate the art and utility of sewing, just as I did all those years ago.

Ella did a great job on altering a bridesmaid dress for my daughter. However, when I inquired about another easy alteration, she turned me down. Please note that she does not do simple alterations (like fixing a broken zipper)... only formal wear and gowns.

Would highly recommend Ella’s Alterations for any alteration needs! Ella did such an amazing job with my bridesmaid dress alterations and hemming my husband’s dress pants. She was so accommodating to our busy schedules and ensured that our items were ready exactly when we needed them! We will definitely be returning clients for any future alteration needs!

Ella is amazing! I brought her my wedding dress after my seamstress wasn't able to give me a pretty bustle. Not only did she redo my wedding dress bustle beautifully, but she also took my dress in a little more due to losing some weight the last two weeks before the wedding. She is very sweet and skilled. I would recommend her to anyone! She did my father's pant hem as well my husband's pant hem, my mom's dress alterations and my grandmother's dress length. Her prices are very reasonable, she is accommodating, and timely.

I’m so glad to have found Ella through FB recommendations! She fixed my wedding dress that I bought online since it was too long. The turn around time was quick and when I tried it on, it was perfect! Ella is very professional and very kind! I definitely will be coming back for future alterations! Thank you!
