Sew Sister To Host Runway Show

(Filed Under Fashion News). Sew Sister Fabric hopes to draw local attention to its custom-made lingerie with its first runway show this Saturday in its hometown of Austin, Texas.

The event will showcase five collections: basics in black and tan; eco-friendly pieces made of 100-year-old kimono silks, reclaimed silks and natural fibers; pieces in warmer-toned fabrics; a collection with shantung and ruffles; and a bridal group. It is open to the public and will start at 10 p.m. at 101 West 5th Street.

Sew Sister's repertoire is quite impressive: bras, bustiers, shelf bras, mastectomy pieces, flutter shorts, thongs, panties, compression underwear, waist cinchers, "pretty much anything you can think of for intimate apparel," says owner Megan Summerville. Cup sizes run an astounding range - from 28A to 52N - and 187 different sizes are available.

Sew Sister makes these garments for walk-in customers and for boutiques in other states, like California, Arizona and Florida. But no boutiques in Texas are carrying the line.

With the show on Nov. 8, Summerville hopes to change that.

"It's about showing people what we can do," said Summerville, who started the company six years ago. "We want to get exposure that we're a custom lingerie house where we can take measurements and fit right to our clients."
