FINE  DRESSMAKING

About


Choices

At Katherine Summer we are committed to options far beyond those available in the mass retail market. Your couture gown will be an extraordinary statement of your individuality and self-expression.

Our sublime color selection contains dozens of subtle or vibrant hues, and our lace supplier is one of the most exclusive worldwide.

In addition, we love to create our own embroideries, beaded ornamentations, and surface textures.

Quality

Creating gowns with masterful workmanship, sublime fit and extraordinary detail is my calling. Support and shaping layers are built into each gown for maximum comfort and user simplicity. Our alteration services for luxury brand gowns are second to none.

Culture

We pride ourselves in our ability to work on gowns at the most opulent price point. However, we strive to create a service atmosphere that is relaxed, low-key, and personable. We don’t do snobby and intimidating.  It’s important that you can use your time with us to decompress from the stress of wedding planning or just life's daily little challenges.

Location

All patterning, cutting, sewing, and embellishing is lovingly worked in our downtown Martinez studio, central to Contra Costa, Solano, and Sonoma counties. Our location offers easy access from all points in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we have clients who love us enough to come from as far away as Santa Cruz, and Sacramento.
