About

As far back as I can remember my fingers have itched to make things. So, I do!!

I鈥檝e dabbled in all sorts of arts and crafts, acquiring skills and mastering

techniques along the way, but my first, longest and most enduring love is sewing/designing.

My grandmother put the first threaded needle in my hands when I was about seven years old and taught me some simple embroidery stitches. Since them I have wanted to gobble up anything and everything to do with fabric and fashion.

And now you, my dear Bride, will be the beneficiary of all this experience and creativity and skill to create your dream gown, redesign or restore a precious heirloom or perfect the fit of a purchased gown.

I can鈥檛 wait to meet you!!

    A wonderful experience

    My partner and I loved working with Marilyn to address our wedding alterations (suit with dress shirt & wedding dress). This was our first time getting garments altered, and she made us feel at ease, and was always happy to answer any questions we had. The garments turned out beautifully, and we can't wait to wear them on our big day! Thank you again, Marilyn + studio

    The Marilyn Johnson Sewing Design Studio, LLC's reply:

    It was a joy to work with the two of you! Thank you so much for the review and even more for letting us know that you are happy and excited about the work we did to perfect your outfits. Both of you will look picture perfect on your wedding day!!
    Best Wishes,
    Marilyn Johnson

    I bought a dress off the rack. It was beautiful and fit perfectly on the top however, i'm too short and it was very, very, very long for me. The bridal shop told me that the only way to get it shorter is to cut from the middle because all the beading is on the bottom of the dress. They recommended a place but my conversations with that company over the phone was not very satisfactory and the place was too far for me. I searched around my area and found The Marilyn Johnson Studio. She had really good reviews so I took my chance and scheduled my appointment with her. My dress had something like 8 layers inside that I did not know about. I knew it was going to be a real pain cutting from the middle and making each layer shorter. When I went to my last fitting, I felt so beautiful. The dress fit me perfectly. Marilyn and her team really did a great job.

I often refer my brides and their wedding parties to The Marilyn Johnson Sewing Design Studio for alterations and custom designs. So of course when planning my own daughter's wedding and needing some alterations we knew right where to go. Marilyn and her team took great care of us and our needs, not only making sure our dresses fit perfectly, but they customized a veil I'd worn at my own wedding.
