Just in time for custom Halloween costumes and your fashionable Holiday season, a new seamstress has opened up shop in 11th Ave. between Pike and Pine, above PURR. Merrillee Bradshaw has been sewing and designing for as long as she can remember. And although she declines to disclose just how many years that is…..she does admit making her first dress at an early age (8!), learning from her mother, a divine couture seamstress and alterations expert.
Merrillee’s expertise lies mainly in dressmaking and clothing design. She excels in alterations and fitting. Among her greatest accomplishments has been the creation if some pretty cool costumes for the Seattle fan production movie, Star Trek Phoenix, by Temporal Studios. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEWUxF-pLb4&feature=relat
