Sara of @burgesscustom taking measurements of @grandtargheeresort ski patrol vests that need mending. “Zippers are the most common issue,” she tells me as I ask about them. ⠀⠀
Finding a skilled tailor is tough in today’s world, but finding bespoke tailors who can mend the gortex you ripped to shreds is even more rare. Sara, one of the warmest and most welcoming people I’ve ever met, runs the show at Burgess Custom - a custom outerwear company in Driggs. She’s the CEO and head designer - and she has 3 seamstresses working along side her.
“Custom snowpants are my favorite,” she says as she pulls a pair off the shelf. She even made a custom onepiece snowsuit; it’s her favorite custom piece to date. Aside from beautiful custom pieces, she can repair and tailor outwear and backpacks on a beast of a sewing machine that can handle burly fabrics. ⠀⠀
Sara is one of the amazing women who I had the privilege to interview & photograph for my upcoming project. Stay tuned for the launch, which will include her full interview!
