At the top of the new year, many of us make hard decisions about the clothing in our closets. Purging what doesn't fit, is damaged, or just plain boring is part of our decision making. The sad part is that sometimes a favorite garment appears to be heading toward the rag bag. Often times the piece in question is a moth-eaten cashmere sweater. A good friend calls me the Sweater Savior. And its true, in fact. I rescue castoff sweaters and reincarnate them into new, eco friendly versions of their former self. And I can reincarnate yours too. Unless, of course, it looks like the red swimsuit in the pinup girl photo.. There are ways of keeping those destructive moths away from your precious cashmere, as you can read about here. But if your best intentions fail, or if you simply want to redo one or more of your cashmere pieces, the choices are many. Add an applique to a basic pullover, or transform it into a versatile cardigan, fingerless gloves, beret, or even a children's sweater, dog sweater or pillow. See cashmere sweater and accessory options here, children's and dog sweaters here, and home decorative accessories here. [gallery link="file" ids="14173,13125,15211,8778,10626,8536"]   Appliqué options and color charts can be seen below and on each item's page in the shop section.   Choose your applique, appliqué color, and create a DIY (design it yourself) bespoke cashmere creation. [gallery link="file" ids="7181,8825,15184"] Celebrate the new year by giving one or more of your cashmere sweater a new life!  By participating in the Sweater Savior Project, you'll have something new for yourself, which is a real treat, and you'll also be doing your part  to save the planet by reducing waste and landfill. Even better,  by recycling your own sweater, you'll save 50% off the listed price. Use the code Sweater Savior upon checkout for a 50% discount and free shipping on your chosen design. See our contact page for our contact information and address to ship your sweater. Simple additions of an appliqué and/or hole repair are also available. Contact us for options. Happy 2015 everyone! And as always, "Live Green And Prosper"!

I just absolutely love my dress ! My mother was married 50 years ago and the dress was 50$ when she bought it and we didn’t know if anything could be done with it . I really wanted to wear her dress because my parents marriage has been an inspiration to me my entire life and I love them so much ! When I saw the final design I cried its like something I dreamed because I never thought I would wear something like this but Its as if it was always going to be my dress . Deborah was so easy to work with and I knew from the start I could trust her judgment . I glad I did !


Deborah did an amazing job! My seamstress was unavailable due to busy season, and Deborah saved the day! She was very responsive, great to work with, and had my dress done in a short amount of time. She went above and beyond what I was expecting. Besides saving the beading when she hemmed the front of my dress, she appliqued the extra details back onto the front. It looks even better than what I was expecting. I'm so happy with how my dress turned out, and in the turnaround time. I'd HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of alterations. She's wonderful :]


Omg! Deborah is amazing!! I had a really beautiful Vera Want dress, but it wasn't corseted in the back (it had just a zipper and fake buttons) and the neckline was straight and I just always dreamed of a sweetheart! She did an AMAZING JOB for such a good price, like half what David's bridal would charge. Honestly I don't think David's bridal could have come NEAR what Deborah did for me. I'm obsessed with it. I feel like a Helena Bonham Carter fairy bride in my dress. I could not be happier or more in love!


Absolutely perfect! I came to Deborah with an ill fitting wedding gown that had brought me to tears. I have an extreme hour glass shape that is hard to fit, which makes me very self conscious. The wedding dress sample that I had tried on was quite different from the dress I received, and Deborah completely saved the day by turning it into the best fitting, most flattering and supportive gown I could have hoped for. Thank you, Deborah, for your patience, your kindness, your humor and your talent!
