Because of their unique nature, no returns or exchanges are accepted on physical goods including antique garments, antique books and periodicals, reproduction clothing, corsets, accessories and sewing kits.
Additional policies and FAQs
All handmade items are specifically created one-by-one. Because of this, variations may occur within like items. That's the nature and beauty of hand-crafted goods!

I accept custom requests on a limited basis. Please convo me for more information regarding viability of the project and scheduling.

I do not sew complete custom costumes for sale. However, I am open to custom commissions for off-the-rack undergarments such as chemises, drawers and a variety of petticoats, off-the-rack corsets using the Historical Sewing corset pattern in custom colors and other historical accessories.

All items come from a smoke-free home. Although, we do have two resident cats who enjoy spending time in the sewing room.

Thank you for your business!
