I'm Kaelie and I would be honored to be your tailor.
I come from a long line of seamstresses. From about the age of five, I have memories of snooping around my mother's sewing machine. Marveling at the scraps of fabric and the pins, needles, and thread she kept in an old plastic sewing box. I would be warned not to play around the machine, but I couldn't stay away. Having jammed her machine one too many times, my mom finally taught me the basics and I took it from there.
In 2010, I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Art & Design. After many years in various jobs, I've finally decided what truly makes me happy is to sit behind one of my machines and coax out perfect seams.
I do this job with surgical precision, scrutinizing every stitch until perfection is achieved. From hand beading to hems, and sewing on buttons to completely revamping an ill-fitting design, working on bridal and special occasion garments is absolutely the best use of my unique skill set. There's nothing quite like the perfect fit to give you confidence and comfort on the special day you've been dreaming about your whole life. You can feel at ease knowing that your garment is in good hands and will only be finished when it fits perfectly.
