Lindsay Pritchard’s sewing career has come full circle. In 2011 while attending OSU for Apparel Design and Merchandising Management, she interned for Julia in bridal alterations (yes, out of Julia’s basement). She graduated college and moved to Eugene to be the alteration seamstress at Blush Bridal. At Blush, she conducted fittings and did all the sewing alterations and custom design work herself. It took five years, but in 2018 Lindsay found her way back working for Julia, and Silhouette now has two bridal tailoring specialists!

Greatest sewing achievement:

“The custom straps and sleeves that I have built over the years to add to wedding dresses.  Being able to construct a brides vision, and have her perfect dress come to life.”

The experience that first got you into sewing:

“I used to make clothes for my dolls by wrapping whatever fabric/material I could find around them and finishing with a belt. Zero stitching involved. My mom taught me to sew at the age of 11 or 12, and my first project was making bathrobes for mine and my sister’s American Girl Dolls. I was hooked.”

Favorite part of alterations:

“I like the puzzle aspect. How clothes go together, and how they come apart. I find so much joy in a perfectly fitted dress and being able to create a bride’s perfect vision of herself for her big day.”

Furry friend:
