I needed something appropriately Halloween related that wasn’t your regular vampire or wolfman for my Halloween shows and stumbled across this beautiful item. And am I glad I did! The service received was impeccable. I honestly couldn’t ask for more. Polite, prompt with replying to messages and the speed at which this was made to my exact measurements was amazing. The only thing that beats the quality of service is the quality of the item it self. Wow!! I’m a juggler and struggle with getting jackets to fit yet still allow enough room for me to actually do the show. This ticks all the boxes and more. I highly recommend both the item and the creator. I’ll definitely be back in future.

Perfect- it's a good material for an apron, fits gorgeously and looks so perfect. It fits really well over my costume but still fits the bill, and it does look adorable. 11/10

I have unusual proportions, and haven't had much luck with off the rack corsets. Jema did her pattern drafting magic, and now I feel supported and beautiful. She did an outstanding job.

It's nice but needs another closer (button or straps for bow) to lay like it does on the mannequin. It'll be a simple fix. The sewing isn't the best quality for the price and the straps are slowly unraveling, but I really like it and have received compliments. Shipping was very fast!

My daughter says this is amazing! I have not seen it yet but she is dancing in it tomorrow in a Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde piece. I think it will be perfect! Thank you!
