the artistry
of sewing 


Why Katie Rose?

Although I am located in Olympia, brides come from all over the PNW (and sometimes farther) to experience my services and feel their results.

I think every bride deserves to feel absolutely beautiful and confident on her wedding day. They also deserve an enjoyable alterations process. The majority of brides have never had a gown altered, and it can be a daunting experience. I am a master of my craft, so there are many things I can alter or redesign that brides, or even other seamstresses, do not realize is possible! I am here to answer all your questions, guide you, and perfect your gown. I promise you will love the entire alterations process and fall in love with your wedding dress even more. 


About Me

My name is Katie and I am truly passionate about the art of sewing. I started as a child, and over the years I honed my craft through apprenticeships and hands-on experience as a seamstress and dressmaker. I'm inspired by the artistry of haute couture sewing, and strive for the same perfection of fit and quality in every garment I sew. 


I've always hoped to have my own business, and the arrival of my daughter pushed me to take that plunge into self-employed life. And I couldn't love it more! I love connecting with my clients, working through their unique needs, and sewing garments that I'm proud to deliver. 

What sets me apart from other bridal alteration specialists, is that I am also a dressmaker. If you peruse my gallery, you will see both of my custom wedding gowns. They're easy to spot since one is burgundy and the other black! Custom gowns for clients is a future goal of mine. But for right now, I put that skill set to use whenever altering, re-designing, or completely re-sizing a gown. 



I'm proud to offer only the highest quality workmanship and fit. I do not strive to be the least expensive seamstress, but I promise that all of my clients receive transparent and fair pricing. I understand that alterations and their prices are not common knowledge to most people. Therefore, I take great care to show various options during each fitting and keep you informed and in charge of your garment. I dread taking my car to the shop and getting a large bill that I don't understand at all! So I make sure my clients never feel that way about their alterations. I will guide you through all your options on fit, sewing, and price; and you simply pick what works for you!


Since every client has unique needs, it is best to fill out my inquiry form and I am happy to offer complimentary consultations/quotes. In fact, I actually provide each of my clients an estimate before booking. I will let you know if an in person consultation is necessary for a more complex alteration, redesign, or custom piece.
