Sewing, always sewing...
Seams to You is a local tailoring business, where I do everything from alterations to custom apparel and some home décor.
The years have added too much stuff to my life; perhaps some of it will find a new home, thanks to this etsy shop.
Many thanks for visiting today!
My other Etsy shop:
Leinweber Studio, for fine sewn things.

Sylvia is the owner/operator behind Seams to You, a real storefront business in Albuquerque, NM. Having achieved SABLE (Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy), it is now time to share the bounty with other sewers. Next goal: reduce fabric stash.
Thank you for reading these shop policies.
Patterns: The patterns I sell are unused, in original factory folds and in excellent condition. Sometimes the envelopes show some age-related wear but any such minor imperfections will be mentioned in the description.
Vintage patterns are old, and usually have more wear of the envelope than newer patterns, including some markings here and there. Any such blemishes will be mentioned. The contents, though, are in a perfect, unused condition.
A note: Pattern sizes and ready-to-wear sizes are two very different things. For instance, a pattern size 8 is usually a size 4 in ready-to-wear. For anyone unsure about this I will gladly provide the pattern's measurements upon request.
Fabrics: Please be aware that colors may appear slightly different on other computer monitors and that every effort has been made to portray the item as accurately as possible. The same goes for trim. In some situations I can send a small swatch of fabric upon request.
By ordering the buyer agrees that they have read these policies, fully understand them and view them as a legal and binding contract.
Accepted payment methods
Cancellations: I usually ship items the next business day, meaning cancellations will probably not reach me in time to stop the shipment of your item as I check my emails only in the early morning and late evening.
Shipping includes tracking and, if applicable, insurance.
All items are sent in safe and item-appropriate packaging.
Shipping within the US takes about 3 to 7 days depending on location.
Seams To You does not currently ship outside of the USA, due to misleading and inaccurate language added by ETSY regarding VAT and other taxes.
Please make sure your shipping address is correct and up to date in every way.
A confirmation message will be sent once the item has shipped.
Returns and exchanges
Patterns are non-returnable.
Fabrics and trims are returnable only if the wrong item was sent or if the item was misrepresented. No returns will be accepted based on slight color variations or change of mind.
Items are sent in sturdy packaging. However, should your item arrive with shipping damage, convo at once please and we'll take it from there.
