Does anyone know of any seamstresses or people who make stage clothing?

I am trying to get a special trench coat made for me, but no one locally seems to
be able to do the job. Its not a particularly difficult project I am told anyone with experience making clothing could handle it, any help would be greatly appreciated...


Thanks!

Hi Steven,

If you scroll the forums - check out Odd and Ends, there's a section on stage clothes and you'll find some useful info there.

Hi Steven... My other half makes clothes for me. I also recently found a beautiful vest with historical playing cards as the print at a local thrift shop. At least it was beautiful to me just because of the design. I would definitely look at the thrift stores and then hopefully find someone who can do alterations. You might have better luck that way.

I second the second hand store advice. Found a complete Tux in great shape for $35, used a $5 off coupon, and got a great hanging mirror to pratice with for the difference. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

Hi Again,

Fantastic advice regarding the second hand shops! I can spend hours in them and find one of a kind items ranging to ornate boxes to just about any costume imaginable. You can then take the trench coat to a seamtress - Usually the local drycleaner has one or a tailor and have it modified.

Just be certain it didn't once belong to Pee Wee Herman.
>>oh that was baaad! Excuse my lame humor.:O)

You have to give it away to keep it.

Checked some second hand shops, no luck.

The problem I guess is I have something specific in mind.

Its a duster like full length trench coat but the company I found only sells it in leather, much too hot. I want the same coat made in thin lightweight material.

I got a tux coat for 3.00$ during my second hand hunting though... Very nice.
David, how do I contact Lynetta Welch, is she the same one who sells the hanks
and things from her website? if so I contacted her already.
