White Glove Sewing Service is Here

For those of you who have wanted to use Sprout, but didn’t have the time or skills, we now have a White Glove Service to sew garments for you!

We are excited and proud to announce a new collaboration with sewist Eloisa Rivera, as we expand Sprout to include garments sewn by Eloisa especially for you.

Eloisa Rivera is a brilliant sewist coming from a family line of professional dressmakers going back to the early 1900s. Like her mother, Eloisa first learned to sew at home. She started with small hemming projects, and progressed to fabricating beautiful and unique pageant gowns for her and her sisters. Throughout the years, Eloisa has had the fortune to live in many Central and South American countries, where she applied her masterful skills to open a successful uniform manufacturing business that she owned for many years.

Why are we doing this?

Our aspiration was to create a service that benefits all of us. A way for customers to get garments sewn for them, while fairly paying the people doing the sewing. We consider sewing a skilled craft and want to make sure everyone involved takes joy and pride in their contribution. This pride is evident in the fine craftsmanship that you will see in the garments that you receive.

How does it work?

At this time our White Glove Service is available on select patterns only. You can view these at the bottom of this page. The great part of this service is that you can add it to individual items in your order. Choose some items to be sewn for you by Eloisa, and sew the rest for yourself.

If a pattern is eligible for White Glove Service, you’ll see it as an option where you choose your size and fabric. Once in the cart, you’ll see the added cost as well as a place to send a note to Eloisa about your order. If you have questions about the content and care of Spoonflower fabrics, you can find that information here.

Please keep in mind that this is a new service and we’re still fine-tuning it. Please send us your thoughts via our Contact Page. We love helping you design custom garments, and we’re excited to see what you create. Feel free to share on social media with #sproutpatterns or send us a photo of your Sprout Project!
