South Bend Seamstress
We are a full service alterations and custom clothing shop. We specialize in bridal and formal wear alterations but can alter any clothing item. We also create custom garments from scratch.
What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?
I open South Bend Seamstress to fill a void I found in the community. While there are several alterations places in the area, there is none that do all types of alterations. I am able to do many things other shops cannot do, such as working on all types of garments and also creating clothing from scratch. I enjoy being able to help clients create the exact outfit they envision and seeing it come to life.
I chose to open in South Bend because I believe the city is in a revival and I wanted to be part of that. Thankfully South Bend is a city where an individual can open a business by themselves and watch it grow. I'm very proud of some of our accomplishments that we've achieved in just the few years the shop has been open. We are the official seamstress of the South Bend Cubs; seamstress for the University of Notre Dame Leprechaun, and donate our time helping with community projects.
