Announcement    **Please read all shop policies before contacting me or purchasing**

Hello there! After a long hiatus, I have opened my shop back up to fill the need for face masks. I will also attempt to add a few ready-to-ship items of the costume variety as I can. Thanks for stopping by!
.
For the current forseeable future, I will no longer be offering custom-made costumes through Etsy. Please continue to enjoy my vintage and ready-to-ship items and I hope to be able to offer a small selection of custom costume pieces at a later date. If you are in the Houston, TX, area and are interested in having something custom-made, please send me a convo.
.
A note about pricing: We believe in full price disclosure. We do not list "starting" prices. Each costume is listed at a flat rate based on materials used in the photos. Costs may vary slightly (up or down) if you request that your custom item be made of different materials than those listed. If you are interested, send us a message! We would LOVE to make something for you!

...And The Rest Is History

(Working on an update for this story!)

I began sewing in earnest in 2000 when I took my first costuming class in Baylor University's Theatre Department. I have been fascinated by needle and thread, however, since I was a kid, when I sewed my own Barbie clothes and throw pillows.

My attraction to history and clothing has been lifelong. I am absolutely fixated on accurate re-creation of historical details and styles on costume pieces. I create fantasy and period reproduction garments using modern techniques. From Pre-history to the 20th century, I have done and continue to do research to achieve a correct historical look for all of my fashions. I use period-style fabrics when I can and everything is fully lined where it counts. The theatrical costuming techniques I use ensure that each garment will last through years of wear.

I have over 17 years of costuming and stagecraft experience and I love to use my skills to create beautiful and durable costumes. I am working on developing my own patterns that will work with my theatrical training in costume design and construction techniques.

My customized costumes are perfect for individuals for Renaissance Faires, themed weddings, SCA events, and period re-enactments.

I love history and I love clothing and I have opened this shop because I would love to share that with you!

Returns and exchange details
Custom-made costumes are not returnable. If there is a fitting issue with any product I have made according to measurements you have taken and sent to me, I will allow 1 return for minor fixes at no additional cost to you (except return postage to me). I am not responsible for damages incurred due to operator error, abuse, or inappropriate wear, nor am I responsible for major fitting issues due to inaccurate measurements, pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, or other body changes. It is important that the measurements you take be as accurate as possible (please see note on taking measurements, below). I am only responsible for as much information as YOU provide to me.

Ready-to-wear items may be returned (postmarked) within 7 business days of receipt and are subject to a restocking fee, to be determined according to the costume. Any item that has been worn and face masks are not eligible for return or exchange.

Cancellation policy:
On custom orders, notice of cancellation must be made 14 days before scheduled ship date to be considered for a partial refund.

Refunds will be issued through PayPal upon my receipt of the returned items.
Payment
I accept PayPal, Etsy payments, and money orders.

For purchases over $399, we can work out an installment plan. This is done through Etsy or Paypal in two separate payments. I require 50% payment to begin work on the costume and purchase materials and the other 50% is due prior to shipping. I generally require 6 - 8 weeks after receipt of the first payment to complete the costume, unless otherwise specified in the listing. Items will not be shipped until all payments have been received. For very large purchases, a payment plan can be arranged for smaller dollar-amount increments. Please ask.

We can work out payment plans on ready to wear items as well. Please contact me for details. All payments on those items are due before the item will be shipped to you.

In the event of cancellation, I require notice at least 2 weeks prior to the scheduled ship date for your item(s). I will then refund 1/2 of the purchase price of the item.

A minimum $35 rush order fee will be charged on all items requested before the specified ship date.
Shipping
All items are shipped via USPS, unless otherwise specified.

I take no responsibility for damages that occur during shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
A note about measurements and measurement-taking:

Accuracy in measurements is key for getting a properly fitting and flattering garment! It is also very important to have your measurements taken while wearing the shoes and undergarments that you intend to wear with your costume. Period undergarments such as hoop skirts and Victorian era corsets can alter your shape considerably and if not taken into account, will result in a very ill-fitting costume. Wearing the shoes that will accompany your costume will ensure that the costume length is not too short (if wearing heels) or too long (if wearing flats).

**If at all possible, please have your measurements taken by someone other than yourself. It is nearly impossible to get a completely accurate measurement when measuring yourself.**

When requesting a custom garment, it is important that you provide us with AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE regarding fabric needs, nature of the occasion on which you will be wearing the costume, sizing requirements, etc. This information helps us determine what kind of fabric will work best for your garment, how much room we allow in the seams, and what kind of trims that we buy, among other decisions that I make as the designer and seamstress that give you the best fitting and most durable costume I can make. I stand by my work, but I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for key information left out by you during a transaction. Please make KNOWN AND CLEAR all of your wishes and needs for your custom garment. I will not refund or re-make a costume if you fail to provide pertinent information during correspondence. Custom-made costumes are not returnable (please see return policies, above). By entering into a transaction with me, you are agreeing to allow me as the designer and seamstress to make certain executive decisions on your costume based on my knowledge and expertise in costuming. These decisions will fill any gaps in information that you may not have provided and are based on my business timetable (i.e., I do not have time in my business schedule to contact you and ask you about every single detail regarding your custom item and wait for your response. I will make small decisions based on my expertise and without your explicit consent to keep my business running on time and smoothly).

Frequently asked questions
Do you have this in stock?

We don't generally keep merchandise in-stock unless specified. Custom orders usually take between 6 to 10 weeks to ship, depending on the item. Check our "Ready-to-ship" section for a great selection of items that are, well...ready to ship!

Can I get this in a different color/fabric/style than what is pictured?

Absolutely! Every item in our shop is handmade and customizable to fit your needs. If you see an item that is close to what you want but needs some different details, don't hesitate to message us with a custom request. We would love to start a conversation with you about your dream garment!

I need this before the ship date...can I get it?

We charge a rush order fee for items requested before the listed ship date. The fee helps cover the costs of expedited shipping as well as the production costs of putting your order ahead of other orders in the queue. Please message us about rush order options, as the circumstances can change depending on the time of year.
