Haven't had a dress tailor-made for a long time. This time, the experience is special. My designer-dressmaker friend and I have been chatting informally about styles and material I like. They all ended in an outing to Arab Street. A first time experience for me. 

Didn't know that there is so much 学问 to choosing material. Thank God for a very experiences cloth-merchant on hand. Did you know that linen from different countries have different texture, softness, etc? And I thought all linen are the same. ;) 

What an awesome experience! Hey, how many people get to go shopping with your designer? :)

Alvina is very patient in teaching me how to sew by hand. She takes the effort to understand what you wish to learn about sewing and then impart the different kind of stitches that you can use for different kinds of purpose. She will be by your side during the lesson to show you how to sew, and she will simplify the steps / instructions such that you will not get confused. 

She is a lovely person to talk to, I enjoy my time learning the different sewing methods and stitches from her. Do engage her services if you want to learn some simple yet different types of sewing and stitches you could do for minor alterations to your clothes such as making it smaller or adding pockets to your apparels :D

Alvina is creative. She proposed and managed the design of the purse thoughtfully considering how the pattern of the cloth will look on both sides. Good workmanship.

I've known Alvina for more than 2 years. She dresses well which reflects her dressing sense.

 

But she makes her own dresses meaning she's a competent dressmaker with a special in-born talents choosing the right materials for the right kind of fashion design. 

Furthermore Alvina is not just any dressmaker, but a passionate fashion designer who takes pride in producing quality outfits to the satisfaction of her customers. Indeed Alvina is a rare breed of fashion designer cum dress maker.

I like the Carielle design and bought the button earrings. It's a rose pattern wth black background. I could also feel the founder's passion for designing dresses and accessories that are a good fit with each individual. She takes the time to understand them and source for fabrics with the person in mind. Give it a go and have your own bespoke dress!

Had gotten a piece of the tailored made floral handbag recently, really nice and exquisite. It's the story behind each pieces Alvina made that intrigue me. Alvina's pieces are limited edition and specially chosen fabric. All are one of its kind. If those she made, are not to your taste, you can always get her to make one to your liking by choosing fabric and design to show her. She is a great listener, patient and meticulous. Alvina gives sewing lessons too and if you're interested can enquire from her. Her prices are reasonable and my experience with her was really warm and heartening. Thank you Alvina, I've gotten quite a few useful tips that saves me money and time. 😁
