Never received my item..I talked to the shop owner multiple times and she originally told me May 10th. BUT it never came ...it is my event today and she tells me today because of her problems she was unable to finish the product... I Have had this order in for nearly three months now very disappointed if I had something to show for my patience like craftsmanship I would give more stars but I don't she is good about responding to messages that is all that I know for now

This listing is no longer available

This bodice fit so nicely with just the right amount of length to hold everything together! Being reversible I could get many looks out of it...green or navy and could even change the ribbon.

I really love this bodice! I was a little worried that it would be too small, but as I was lacing it up and tightening it, it turned out to be the perfect size. The quality is great, and I LOVE that it's reversible. I can't wait to buy more from this shop, and I'm definitely going to recommend them to my entire Renaissance group.

About

I adore history, and creating period clothing is the perfect way to bring the past to life!

Hello and welcome to my Etsy store! I've been the creative type as far back as I remember! As a child, I did drawing and cross stitch embroidery with my mom. Since then I’ve dabbled in dozens of creative mediums. I had my first experience with my grandmother’s sewing machine when I was 12 and since then I've been hooked. I quickly became passionate about period costuming. I created my first period costumes when I was 15 and have been sewing them ever since. I love the feeling of a flat piece of fabric taking shape in my hands and becoming a functional garment or accessory.

Throughout the years my creative passions have lead me on an amazing journey. I’ve worked with theater companies, fashion designers, and independent film directors. In early 2010, I opened my store here on Etsy to branch out with my own designs.

I work full time out of my dog friendly home studio in the San Francisco Bay Area. Utilizing over fifteen years of experience, every item in my store is completely handmade by me, from the research and design to photographing and shipping! Living in this beautiful part of California keeps my creativity flowing! Whether I'm visiting the Golden Gate or strolling through wine country, I'm always inspired by my surroundings.

Welcome to my Etsy store! Everything you see here is handmade with love by me. It is my passion to sew and create and I love every minute of what I do!

I am a one-woman show! Every aspect of my shop is run by me, from the cutting and sewing of each piece to the product photos and shipping. I do not outsource or have assistants of any kind. I work out my home studio. My home is dog friendly but they do not have access to my studio.

Your feedback is important to me! I love reading your positive feedback and Facebook comments and greatly appreciate the time you take to leave it! If there is an issue with your order, please contact me so we can work it out!

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ's:

My measurements are outside of your standard sizing, can you customize something to fit me?
Yes! Please convo me your measurements OR include them in the "notes to seller" section at the time of purchase.

Can I send you fabric to make my item? Is there an extra charge for this?
Of course I can use your fabrics! Please convo me for my shipping address. There is no upcharge for most fabrics, excluding beaded or sequined, fur (faux or otherwise), leather, suede, etc.

I would like something made from a fabric not listed in your listings. Can you make an item out of a different fabric?
Yes. There are just way too many fabrics to list in each listing so if there is something you'd like that isn't in the listing, please convo me! There may be an upcharge for different fabrics so I will send you a quote before creating your custom listing.

I'm interested in a costume that you don't have listed in your shop. Can you create a custom item for me?
Yes!! I love custom work! I have made historical costumes and corsets from many eras, and everything from simple to ornate.

Can you copy the costume in this photo or other seller listing?
No. I will never make an exact copy of another artist's work. I can however, use paintings or extant historical garments as inspiration to create your costume piece!

Do you make cosplay costumes?
On occasion, yes, usually as a custom order. Cosplay costumes are my interpretation of the original costume and I work with the customer to create the look they want to achieve.
