I always appreciate it if you alert me to where you have seen my photos on another website so that I can protect my work. All of my photographs are copyright protected and may not be used without my express written permission. Using someone else's copyrighted photographs is illegal under the U.S. Copyright Act at 17 U.S.C. 106 (

I am still working on new designs, so keep checking back! Some of the characters on my to-do list include John Smith, the Beast, and the last fairies from Pixie Hollow. Some well-known characters are being redesigned, including Mulan and Tiana. I am also opening a brand new section called My Middle-earth, which will include costumes from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies. There is always something exciting going on in the sewing room around here!

If you have an idea for a character not listed in my store yet, send me a message and let's plan it together!

I have been featured in several articles! Check them out here:

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you offer rush orders?
- All rush orders must be approved and may include a Rush Order Fee. The estimated shipping date can be found on your receipt, and the current turnaround time will be listed in the shop announcement.

Do you sew adult sizes?
- I am sorry, but no. I only sew my designs in children's sizes 2T to 10.

How do your designs fit?
- Sometimes costumes are made to fit loosely, as in a 7/8 size. Mine are made to fit like clothing, true to size. I recommend ordering a size up if you want to be able to enjoy them for years to come.

Why is your turnaround time so long? Why does it take even longer for larger orders of 3+ items?
- Quality takes time. I sew my designs with serged seams, topstitching, careful cutting and laying out, lots of ironing, edging of ribbons and fabrics, and lots of attention to detail. I also have to allow time to get the embroidery done and the specialty original fabric printed and delivered. Finally, I run my store completely by myself, and still live as a mother, wife, friend, and even church secretary. My inspiration for new designs come from these other sources, and they are important to me. I am honest about my turnaround time and work diligently to maintain it.
If I ask for 8-10 weeks to create one dress, I must allow additional time to create multiple dresses for a single order before shipping.

Do you have anything in stock, ready to ship?
- All of my designs are custom made for each order and to the measurements you send me, so I very rarely have anything in stock. Sometimes I do sell the costume pictured in the listing.

Do you sell patterns of your designs?
- No. To protect the integrity and creativity of my designs, I do not sell patterns of my designs, or my original fabric or embroidery designs.
