Kathy Boyce has been helping women find their unique style since for many years. Her business, Dressings Fashion House, offers professional wardrobe consultations, custom outfits, ready-made outfits and so much more.
After working as a secretary for 15 years, Kathy decided to follow her passion and start a sewing service. She completed several courses on starting and running a business. After spending two years establishing her client base, she left her secretary position and began running Dressings Fashion House full time. The sewing service quickly developed to include a fashion-consulting service along with the custom tailoring.
Kathy enjoys helping her clients create garments that are tailored to their unique body type. She understands the struggles of trying on numerous off-the-rack outfits and being disappointed with each one because they do not fit properly. Her services can make that struggle disappear as she can custom make garments to fit her client’s needs, ensuring they not only look their best but feel their best, too.
In the News
Take a look at some of the publications Kathy and Dressings Fashion House have been featured in over the years:
“The major pieces in your wardrobe should be custom made. Over the years, I have had Kathy make coats, jackets, suits, and pants. Every year I get one or two custom pieces. I find that you really save money because these clothes last and last. This is where you get your classic pieces.
The Ready Fashions service is great for women who find custom items beyond their pocketbook. Kathy uses her talent to help clients look their best and feel great. Since Kathy does all the ordering and alterations, you save time too!
The Dressings’s gift service not only saves me time but is a blessing. Being visually impaired, shopping can be a difficult task. I can call Kathy, and we do gift shopping for my family and close friends. We do this over the phone, or I spend the day at her shop. She wraps everything up in ways that I can't. This service is wonderful for the unique gifts you can find at various prices.” -Vickie M.
