Announcement   This is my Hobby and creative outlet - I do not have time to take orders right now. Thanks for looking at my Etsy shop.

Few very common questions I get that might help you with your purchase

*#* Care for your clothing - take it to a trusted cleaner. Never iron over lace, tulle or the boning in the dresses :) Tell cleaners not to press the boning. If you ever have any other care questions please send me a convo - thanks!

1. I do ship to everywhere using USPS, please feel free to ask me about shipping costs. Shipping for US is first class for small items and 2 to 4 day priority for larger items. Outside US will vary. Insurance is extra - please ask for it before checking out.

2. I don't take custom orders on my work unless the item description says I will make it to order.

3. I will reserve items if you are a repeat customer, if you have not purchased from me before I will not hold an item for you. If you need to make payments in small amounts I'm happy to work with you, please ask before buying.

4. I don't use sizes I use measurements in inches instead, sizes just vary way too much for an accurate fit :)

5. I have a rescue kitty named Lady Howard - she is a super cutie. No smoking in this household.

6. Sorry, I love all the great photographers out there, but I don't ship my clothing for photo shoots. If you would like to shoot, my rental rates for the Seattle area are reasonable. I will ship out clothing for established and guarantied publications only.

7. I consider my items costumes so there is no returns! If you don't like it or it's not the right fit for you there are always auction sites you can sell it on :)

8. I do make all sorts of shapes and sizes! You will find a lot of smaller sizes do to the fact that I sell a lot of them to photographers for book covers, video shoot and every once in a while a movie.

If you are a publication, please feel free to contact me for photos, I work with some excellent photographers and models in my area.

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask !
