Solving the elegance and fitting problem

Elegant Annswers was founded as a solution to the owner’s personal problems finding elegant and unique items that fit. Often, finding unique items to add to more traditional and classic pieces is hard in today’s clothing industry.

Many people do not understand how important the overall fit of a garment is. When the clothing we wear simply fits it completes the style and pulls it all together. A good fit builds confidence and creates a feeling of empowerment.

Over 30 years of sewing experience

As a master seamstress who has been sewing for over 30 years, she understands the art of sewing and design. She started out studying men’s wear and moved into women’s wear collections. She has been doing small run manufacturing of kids clothes for small boutiques coast to coast.
