Located inside Cat’s Meow boutique, Purrple Pinzz offers personalized alterations and costumaire design. Karen, the proprietor, is an experienced seamstress and costume designer whose work has been seen in many theatre productions and has helped men and women alike create stunning impressions at formal balls and proms, themed events, and other social occasions.

Karen’s period pieces are backed up by research to ensure that the looks she’s creating are historically accurate, while the creative costume designs she dreams up are influenced by her background in printed textiles, jewelry making, and metal arts, giving her a comprehensive understanding of color, texture, and shape.
In addition to dazzling displays of artistry, Purrple Pinzz also deals in the day-to-day, whether it’s taking in a seam or sewing in a pocket.
