Welcome to Deby's Sewing

Deby's Sewing Service is a one woman enterprise offering a full range of quality alteration services for busy clients. I bring over 40 years of experience and creativity to each project. 
Being an Alterationist means that services span from mending & repairing your everyday clothing to fitting the prom and wedding attire to fit you, the way you want to feel on that special day!
I have been sewing since the age of 6 (it's my secret as to how much over 40 years that has been!) I was taught by my Mother, Grammy & Nana; Thank-you all!
The business started in 1977 and continues to expand no matter where we live, my craft & skills grow with each new project.  I've been at the current location for 12 years.

Questions for you

  • Do you live within 30 minutes of Augusta?
  • Are you getting married and need some alterations to your gown to make it perfect for you?  Do you want your mother, future mother-in-law, bridesmaids, flower girl and grandmothers to look fabulous  in their attire?
  • Are you going to prom  and need your dress to fit you?  Do your friends also need to be fitted?


  • Let's set a date to gather your group of 4-5 friends at your place.  Allow 15-20 minutes per girl and 30-45 for a bride.  Everyone bring their dress, shoes and appropriate undergarments (if needed).
  •  I will travel to you, bring my pinning kit and knowledge of what needs to be done.  
  • For a Bride,  I  typically start 2 months prior to the big day, meeting 3-4 times spaced 2-3 weeks apart.   For the others in the group usually only need to meet twice.
  • Prom & Special Occasion wear we typically meet twice.
