Henry and Y Couture (Fashion) is now in McLean!
With talents, trainings, and experiences, Henry and Lynn are ready to serve you with the most beautiful gowns, dresses and suits. Henry and Lynn, a husband and wife team met at Fashion Institute of Technology while being trained in the fashion industry in 1989.

After the training, they worked as a sewing contractor for the famous designers like Bob Mackie, Issac Mizrahi and others. Then they opened a business specializing in custom designed women’s wear in 1993, in McLean. They have been serving women with all the kinds on designing and sewing needs ever since!

Henry and Lynn's scope of business includes:
  • Ready to Wear Womens Dresses
  • Custom made Wedding Gowns and Veils
  • Custom made Mother of the Brides and Mother of the Grooms Dresses
  • Custom made Special Occasion Dresses and Suits
  • Custom made Career Suits
  • Expert Alteration that requires the highest level of difficulty in sewing skill

At the first meeting Henry and Lynn design your garment. They start off carefully choosing flattering designs for each customer. Fairly often, customers bring a picture of desired designs. Henry and Lynn can of course corroborate with customers to create that ultimate dress of dreams! Then, you choose the fabric that will work with the designed garment. You can specify whether you want them lined or not, whether you want the most exquisite fabric or a sturdy and practical fabric. They take down your body measurement for the muslin fitting.




At the second meeting, Henry and Lynn have your muslin ready. At this point in the process, they can still make minor design changes, and make sure the garment is big enough, and long enough. They will make note of how much to let out, where to let out, where the pocket placements should be, etc.

For the third meeting, the garment is ready for fitting. Buttons and trims that complement the design of the garment will be chosen.

At the fourth meeting Henry and Lynn have your garment ready to be picked up. If the garment needs last minute changes, they will make the changes.

To sum up, the process is lengthy, but Henry and Lynn’s customers enjoy the process very much. Most of all, you will end up with perfectly flattering garment - even if you lose weight, you don't want to get rid of the tailored clothes!

Testimonials

It is always a pleasure working with Henry and Lynn! Their clients get double attention-to detail, to ideas, to the uncompromising workmanship in one's finished garment. Henry and Y Couture have my unqualified recommendation.
--Shelah Landsman, Potomac, MD.

I have been a client of Henry and Y Couture for nearly 20 years. They are superb both at designing and making clothes and at alterations. They keep up with the latest fashions and always know what will work best for each client. The clothes they have made for me are the best fitting and most comfortable ones I own. As for clothes I bought elsewhere, I am rarely satisfied with the alterations done even in the most exclusive department stores. As a result, there is scarcely an item in my wardrobe that has not been altered to suit my passion for the perfect fit by Henry or Lynn.
--Sally Pitofsky, Chevy Chase, MD

For the last 15 or so years, I've been enjoying the beautiful clothes created and produced by Henry and Y. Wonderful designs, wonderful workmanship and wonderful people to work with--Henry and Y has it all.
--Judith Viorst, Washington, DC
