Testimonials

“Tessa Koller is a seamstress who truly values clothes and one of the most trusted in the entire Midwest. Her broad skill set and knowledge of what a woman is seeking to feel good in the outfit she’s in is remarkable. From resizing any bridal to ready-to-wear, she can do what most dress tailors can’t. Koller can not only resize garments, but she’s also able to beautifully and effortlessly reshape them as well. She is someone who listens to the customer’s needs and follows through.¬†With a background in fashion and styling to boot, Koller either follows the trends or sets them through her work. As a designer, she believes that shapes are the most important on a figure. Koller works with an extensive range of sizes from zero to eighteen. She is one of those seamstresses who knows what she’s doing with any kind of fabric; from lace to applique, to satin, to taffeta, to the sheer chiffon, organza and a variety of silks to wools and heavier fabrics. Whether you bring an outfit into Tessa’s studio or ask her to make you one, you’ll be wowed with the result. Read customer reviews below.”

“I went to Tessa and asked her to design me a wedding dress. I’d wanted something light, and immediately, she knew what fabrics to choose. She showed me swatches and let me pick which material. She designed me an ivory chiffon wedding gown. I’d also asked her to include an embellishment around the neckline, and somehow, she read my mind. She sent me a picture first of the start of the design element she had hand-stitched to make sure I was happy before completing it. Then, she sent me a photo of the finished design. It was like out of a magazine!

Additionally, she did a fast tailoring and alterations adjustment days before the wedding (and did not charge me extra!) Tessa has serious skills when it comes to maternity wear. The fabric had this elegant swing and drape a chiffon dress should. I was stunned by the finished product and the intricate details weaved throughout. You couldn’t even tell it was handmade. Tessa is a rare gem in the design world, and her talents are too big for the Midwest, but we are happy to have her!” -Leslie H.
