I asked Mary Ruth to make me a custom jacket based on the design of one of my favorite jackets using material my father had purchased in Japan in the 60s. She did such a terrific job that I asked her to make me another! Mary Ruth was responsive to my comments and adjusted the pattern as needed to fit the width of the material. She did a magnificent job of matching patterns and the crafts(wo)manship was superb! I would go back to her in a heartbeat.
