Here are some of the most frequently asked questions I receive. If your question isn’t here, please feel free to contact me!

I don’t see a phone number on your site. How do I reach you??

Due to excessive marketing calls, I now provide my phone number only to those who ask for it! Please email me at or message me through Facebook at SheSpoke Clothing to reach me for the first time. Thanks!

What kinds of garments can you make for me?

I focus on classic, timeless pieces for the professional woman – my style takes inspiration from women like Kate Middleton, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O. Feel free to contact me for:

  • Outerwear (coats are my specialty!)
  • Skirts
  • Dress pants
  • Suits
  • Classic dresses (sheaths, shifts, wraps, etc.)
  • Dress shirts
  • Blazers

Check out my gallery to see pieces from my collection and client photos.

Please Note: at this time I do not do wedding gowns, bridal of any kind, prom dresses, athletic wear or children’s clothes.

What about alterations?

At this time, I only do alterations for existing clients. I prefer to focus on designing and sewing garments!

I would love custom clothes – but won’t it be expensive?

My philosophy is that classic, timeless pieces should last you years and become core pieces in your wardrobe, so I do focus on quality materials. My prices will be in line with high quality ready-to-wear – think Theory, Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch. If you are more of an Old Navy, Joe Fresh or Marshall’s gal, I may not be what you are looking for. I provide an estimate before beginning any work, so don’t hesitate to ask!

I think I’d like to make my own clothes! How do I learn?

Yay! I love when people are interested in this fabulous craft. If you live in Ottawa, I highly recommend classes at Darrell Thomas Textiles. Darrell and most of his staff have trained as fashion designers, so the techniques you’ll learn are professional/industry standards and not home-sewer methods. Check out the classes page for a full list. You can also check out my blog where I will constantly be posting tutorials and tips, and I also link to some of my favourite bloggers who have their own recommendations on local classes. Finally, if you are good at self-study, I have put together a book list with some of my favourite reference books and textbooks.
