Welcome! My name is Tracy McElfresh and I’m the owner of Tracy’s Sewing Studio. We are a small independent business located in Kettering, Ohio specializing in clothing alterations, sewing repairs, custom creations, clothing replicas, costumes and group lessons for the beginner to the advanced. Since 2004 I have been making custom dresses for the public and teaching the art of sewing.
In 2009 I started selling my garments online nationally and participating in local fashion shows. In 2012 I opened an indie sewing and fabric shop that was a great stepping stone for todays work. I was lucky enough to write a monthly fashion column for the Dayton Daily News as well as my own sewing blog. My sewing blog received the 2018 Best Sewing Bloggers on the planet award.
My favorite thing to do is to design and create dresses. If you would like a dress made and there is time I would love to make you one. Wedding season gets busy so it is best to plan ahead.
