From sleeves that are too long to buttons that pull at the bust, getting a good fit on a shirt can be a real pain.
But this week, you can custom-design our own creation at the Make-Your-Own Shirt event at Perchance Boutique.
You may be saying to yourself, ‘make my own shirt? Clearly, I'm not a designer.' Calm down, you’re not going to sew it from scratch.
Expert designer Alicia Bell, known for her outstanding line of custom shirts, will show off her own well-tailored pieces from you to choose from. After you choose a piece you like, Bell will help you find the right body style, then you’ll start from scratch, choosing everything from the fabric and buttons.
After that, your work is done. Just sit back and relax while Bell whips together your shirt and ships it right to you. Four to six weeks later, your well-fitting creation will arrive at your door.
How’s that for customized service?
