Remember a few weeks ago when I said I was moving into an office space with Crafty Broads?  Well, the lease is signed, and it’s official.  So who are these Broads and what makes them so Crafty?

Crafty Broads was founded originally as a wedding planning and custom garments/alteration business.  The wedding planning half of the business has moved to St. Louis, where the business has expanded.  But you’re probably more interested in what’s in Chicago if you’re reading this.

Crafty Broads in Chicago makes custom garments, including wedding dresses, suits, corsets, and probably just about anything else you can imagine.  You can have a custom veil or fascinator made for you.  You can have garments altered to fit you.  Pretty much, if you want something done with clothing–especially fancy clothing–you can get it done at Crafty Broads.  If you want to get an idea of the breadth of their work, check out the gallery on the website.

And don’t forget the alterations.  If you have a garment that isn’t quite right or needs repair or just doesn’t fit, Crafty Broads is the place to go to make it right.

I’m lucky to be sharing a space with so much creativity.  It has inspired me to start making lace again, which you’ll be able to see when you’re at the shop.  There’s a lot of goodness all in one place!
