My name is Liby Ball, and I specialize in custom-made costumes and formal gowns. Generally speaking, if you can give me a picture of what you want, I can make it.

I have many years of experience in bridal shops as a seamstress/alterations specialist. I have made award-winning Halloween costumes and stage costumes. I have made wedding gowns and dance-team costumes.

Making gowns is my specialty, and I would love any opportunity to make something glamorous for you! Cost for custom garments is based on approximate hours needed to complete the project, and quotes are available. Muslin samples are also available for custom work, and range from $50-$200.


-I received my dress today. I love it! It is just as described and pictured. Fits perfectly. You are awesome!

-Beautifully made! This has to be the best seamstress ever!!

No refunds on custom-made items. If an item doesn't fit quite right and your measurements have not changed, I will alter it for free and refund your shipping.
Custom-made items must be paid for in the following manner: Payment is due up front. Materials may be billed separately. Only after payment is made and cleared will I ship the item.

Shipments to foreign countries sometimes get held up in customs. Clients may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches the foreign country. Additional charges for customs clearance are at the responsibility of the client. I have no control over this.
