Although we do offer custom home decorating, we do not offer custom apparel sewing services. However, we do collect business cards from local dressmakers, tailors and other sewing professionals who might be able to help you. Stop by your local Vogue Fabrics to flip through their business cards. Some cards vary by department in the Evanston Store. We can not make recommendations, but we do encourage you to meet with these professionals and discuss your project and pricing. You can also contact PACC - the Professional Association of Custom Clothiers - for local professional assistance.

If you are a dressmaker or tailor, and you are interested in having us put your business card on our site, please contact myvoguefab@aol.com subject: Dressmaker Cards.
