Rae Cumbie


Though Savvy appreciates the ease and comfort of off-the-rack clothing, she has to admit that there’s nothing quite like a custom-made item. Add to that the fact that she’s the daughter of a tailor yet can’t sew a stitch and you can understand her appreciation for the skill of this noble domestic art. So she was thrilled to find Rae Cumbie toiling away in creative bliss in a modest house in Anneslie. Rae does “high-end alterations and redesign work.” Want to do something with that wedding gown besides pack it in a trunk? Have it made into a christening gown. Pondering a figure flaw that no mass-produced dress can disguise? Let Rae do the fixing for you. Or just don’t want to see yourself coming and going in something nine other people out there may have bought? Let Rae make you a one-of-a-kind article. Silk, wool, cotton, lace, even polar fleece— if you want it, Rae can do it. And if you’re handy with a needle and thread, you can even buy one of her Fit for Art patterns and make something yourself. 410-377-0706, www.raecumbie.com
