Dorm Room Magic!

Whether you’re a freshman just enrolled in college or a parent packing up snacks/essentials/clean laundry for your kid to take back to campus on Sunday, you know that wherever the dorm room destination, there will always be something missing….STORAGE SPACE!

Well, have no fear! There are many clever ways to camouflage your tightly packed belongings. Turning your room from a cluttered mess to a clean and concealed organized space can be as easy as pie!

In this case, we created a custom curtain to cover an entertainment unit/storage shelf. Take a look at this dorm room disguise!


Open for everyone to see…


Hidden and neat as can be!

We can create a curtain like this in most any dimension, color, or pattern to match your dorm decor! Come in to The Tailor Maid today and let us help you with your custom dorm project!

We Like Lace!

Lace seems to be everywhere this season…and The Tailor Maid isn’t complaining! Possibly the most chic and feminine embellishment to date, it’s no surprise that this delicate art form has made quite the comeback on ready-to-wear garments and accessories this year.

When styled correctly, lace can completely change the look and attitude of a garment. The Tailor Maid is prepared to keep you in style by adding lace to your favorite looks…take a look at this plain cardigan and note the transformation!


A little lace, and you’ve got a whole new look! This cardigan is now feminine, chic, and completely unique!


Come into The Tailor Maid today and see what garments of yours we can hem, alter, and now decorate with lace!

We’ll see you soon!

Napkin Nights!

Have you paid your patio table much attention lately?  You’d be surprised–the right napkin can really make the night as far as your dining space goes!

Just as you can switch up accessories on an outfit, you can also reinvent the look of your home decor with a quick switch of small details. Minute yet important touches, such as place mats,  napkins, and boldly placed colors, can add a punch of fun to any area and completely set the tone for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Here, see how two different looks can transform the same patio table:

Radiant Red!

Warm and radiant colors can make a space bright, energetic, and inviting.

Cool Neutrals.

Cooler colors and sophisticated neutrals provide a calm, relaxing, and pensive aura.

The Tailor Maid
can help create both of these looks, and many more!  Bring us your favorite fabric selections, or let us create your own custom look for your dinner, pool, or picnic table. At about only $5.00 a napkin, you can achieve the chic and customized look your decor has been yearning for at a very affordable cost.

Another great thing about custom napkins? They’re green! “Good for the environment” green, that is. No more paper napkins to throw away!  You can mix up your decor with lots of color, and cloth napkins are also such an elegant touch to every dining space, be it out by the pool, on your deck or patio, or in a classic dining room.

Visit us today and let us help you punch up your patio!
