Welcome to Marissa's Thread

Combine your inner energy and creativity to show the world who you are.

You’re in the right place if…

You love to create, to learn, to be authentically you. You are not interested in the mundane off the rack life– or clothing.

You like your clothes to fit your unique shape and you want to look good wearing them.

You want custom, comfortable clothing that is made for you or you want to learn the techniques to make them yourself.

You want to know how to bring who you are on the inside out, through color and how you dress to present your beautiful energy to the world.


Hi, I’m Marissa Waldrop. I’m not your typical fit in the box kind of person and Marissa’s Thread isn’t your typical learn to sew or sewing site.

I help you connect to your inner creativity and help you bring it to the outside through color, design, energy and clothing.

People ask me all the time if I can teach them how to sew or if I can do clothing alterations. The answer is yes, yes I can, but I can do more than that. I ask “What else is possible?”

At Marissa’s Thread you will learn more than how to sew on a button, get some pants hemmed or about pattern making and design. I teach you about the intentional energy behind our clothing and color choices. Some people call that chakras. I like to think of it as the way you want to be seen by the world because of who you are on the inside.

Do you want to get creative and learn to sew, get some alterations done, or learn all about the energy of color intention and emotion to see how it can enhance how you present yourself to the world?

Can I just tell you how grateful I am for so many things leading up to this wedding?

When David’s Bridal canceled my alterations appointment I had scheduled without notifying me until I showed up to a locked door 3 weeks before our wedding, I was incredibly lucky and found Marissa Waldrop and Marissa’s Thread to do a super short notice alteration impeccably well.  I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.
