About Sue

Blue Std w Tony 2019 WI State.jpg

Me in my latest ballroom dance creation, with dance professional & instructor, Tony Karadzhov.

I am all about making you look your absolute best for your special day, whether it’s a wedding, prom, charity ball, or other special event.

I offer my clients -

  • Friendly, fun service

  • A perfectionist’s attention to detail

  • Kind style advice

  • Tender care to your special dress


Since opening Fitting Sewlutions by Sue Tenney in 2003, I have worked with hundreds of clients and mastered the skills to

  • fit & flatter bodies of all shapes and sizes

  • work with difficult fabrics, lace, and beading

  • assess style and proportion of necklines, strap size/placement, belt width/position, jewelry shape/length, etc. to optimize your appearance. 


While my current focus is on bridal alterations and vintage restyles, I spent several years making custom bridal and formal gowns, as well as ballroom and latin dance dresses.  In my prior career as a finance executive in the corporate world, I traveled extensively overseas and developed strong analytical and problem solving skills - which I continue to use in fitting complex garments and figures!


For 18 years I've been an active member and leader in the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals (ASDP).  In addition to sewing and design, my passions include ballroom & swing dancing, gardening, stitching, hiking, and Zumba.

Hello Sue, just wanted to say thank you again for working on the two bridesmaid dresses I had while pregnant.  The last one worked out fabulously as well.  And, here's a picture of the little guy who caused us such trouble!  Thanks again for your great work.
