Wife, mother, dressmaker, dreamer.

I began sewing at the age of 9 with a simple patchwork quilt. I still remember sitting at the kitchen table with my mom’s green singer, learning how to control the speed and sew in a straight line, all at the same time! My mom and grandmother taught me by allowing me access to their scrap boxes and “stashes” of fabric. Now, a few years later, with my children grown and pursuing their dreams, I find myself pursuing my dreams here in The Fitting Room & CO.

Along with the teaching from my mother and grandmother, I also had the privilege of working for a Saks Fifth Avenue Tailor in Bethesda, have taken continuing education classes and am continually working at honing my skills and learning new techniques. I have spent my life experimenting with fabrics and patterns, making everything from dresses for my daughter to hunting clothes for my husband and sons. It is a creative outlet, a craft, a skill.

The Fitting Room & Co is my vision of sewing, dressmaking. bringing to life apparel that "fits" you, who you are, what you are doing,where you are going. The Fitting Room & Co is about fitting you, not about you fitting your attire.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you on your clothing needs, be it your bridal gown, the jeans you need hemmed, or a special project you have been mulling over in your mind.


Working with Kelley at The Fitting Room & Co. for my wedding was fantastic! Kelley in total worked on three gowns for myself and my mother and we were both more than pleased. My favorite part of working with Kelley was the custom short dress she made for my reception that was entirely made from my mother’s wedding gown.

The designing process was so much fun and it was so special to include my mom’s wedding dress on my day. My main wedding gown also needed quite a bit of work as it was several sizes too large and Kelley did a great job of reworking it so that everything looked and felt seamless. My mom was also very happy with her alterations for her mother-of-the-bride gown. Going to each appointment was something that my mom and I looked forward to! She is great at communicating and is very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Kelley for alterations as well as custom design work!



Success is not the arrival but the journey, the journey of a full and overflowing life. Giving more than I take, loving more than I am loved, working harder than required.

A vessel of love, light, and laughter.
