Custom Designs by Heather Gabriel Singing Seamstress

About Heather

From the tender age of 9, when I singlehandedly sewed my first summer dress out of lavender and ivory-sprigged lawn, I knew I wanted to be a seamstress. Threading a needle came oh-so naturally to me, and the joys of creation – of taking something that began as an idea in my head, sketching out the pattern, then cutting and sewing and adorning – filled my soul like nothing else.

Since those early days of designing clothes for dolls and myself, I’ve come a long way over the years. Just creating was no longer enough… now I wanted to create for others, to breathe life into their own ideas, to make their fantasies come true.

Are you looking for that perfect gown for a wedding or prom? Do you professionally cosplay or merely need a costume for a stage production or the Renaissance Festival? Or are you perhaps a jolly old elf in real life who’s seeking the perfect Santa costume? Whatever your costuming or upscale couture needs, I can fill them and surpass all your expectations.

What are the secret ingredients to my success? A strong mixture of passion for art, a lot of love and dedication, and the determination to leave the world a brighter, happier place, one client at a time. That – coupled with my long experience being a professional costumer in the theatrical arts – enables me to read the mood of the event, the mind of the client, and the soul of the story.

Working together on your gown or costume… the possibilities are endless.
