Have you seen my Etsy shop pictures on Ali Express, and other China based internet stores? I am not affiliated with Ali Express and other China based sites that have copied my photos to their site, along with many other fine etsy sellers. I have not given permission for Ali Express not any one else to copy my photos from my etsy shop. Buyers who saw my photos on Ali Express, and ordered, reported that they were highly disappointed when they received inferior low quality items that were of no resemblance to my item-dress pictures.It seems as though those sites are using etsy shop photos to allure buyers into making purchases , that the buyers later regret. Please be careful , and be sure you are at the etsy.com site when you order.

My friends and I had originally made panniers for my costume, and all was going well until we discovered (at the last minute) that the skirt was too heavy and was causing my panniers to collapse in one spot. I contacted this seller with only a few days to spare. They tried to help me trouble shoot the problem, and when it became obvious that we didn't have enough time to make the needed changes they immediatly made me a set of panniers and shipped them to me. I don't know how they did it so quickly, but the panniers are lovely. They are high quality and the sewing and construction is so much sturdier than anything I had previously seen or sewn when researching my panniers. They fold up for storage and they are sturdy enough that I expect to get quite a bit of use out of them. I wouldn't hesitate to order from this seller again.

About

Childhood Sewing Hobby Becomes Showbelles Couture

Sewing has been my passionate hobby since childhood. I began with Barbie doll costumes, sewing them by hand,needle and thread. My mother had an old 1930s Morse sewing machine that I practiced on during my primary school years. As mother and I updated to newer machines, I advanced from intermediate to advanced level sewing before entering high school.

I began a small custom couture design business in 1975 during my college years. While studying art history, classical music, and piano, I became fascinated by fine craftsmanship of designers from the 17th,18th and 19th centuries. It was then that I learned how fine exceptional clothes are crafted and constructed.

After a lengthy career in community social work, I did a mid career change. I longed to create fine theatre quality historical, period, vintage inspired costumes and clothes. The fashions of those times required impeccable craftsmanship. I could not wait to dive into that impeccable level of sewing and design.

I have over 36 years of experience creating couture level clothing and costumes. My work can be seen on all 7 continents. My first online store is Showbelles on ebay. www.stores.ebay.com/Show-Belles-Costumes-and-Clothes . I currently have over 900 positive feedbacks at 100% at my ebay store, where I began development in 2004.

I began developing my etsy shop in 2009. I officially opened Showbelles Costumes and Clothes Couture on Etsy in 2012. I am the designer,seamstress,pattern drafter,sample maker, curator,photographer, shipping clerk, and more. Feel free to send pictures,sketches, or designs that you wish to have constructed.

I can make and construct most any type of garment,lingerie,swimwear, dresses,sportswear,uniforms,costumes and clothes. I also make wedding or bridal dresses and gowns,formals,prom,cocktail,semi formals,thetare,opera,reenactment clothing,western wear, hats,gloves,craft items,stuffed animals, doll clothes, and much more. I create home fashions and upholstery. I even re-upholster RV's. This is a lot of work, but work that I so dearly love and enjoy.

The most wonderful perk of all is that I can spend more quality time with family and friends, while enjoying my business activities... especially the creative process.Thanks for shopping and visiting. Have questions? Please convo or email me. May brotherly love and peace cover our planet. May you have a wonderful season.

How? I managed to keep my overhead costs down very low. My items and offerings are reasonably priced. I can offer reasonable discounts for qualified orders. Convo me to discuss a discount for a qualified order.
