My garments and dresses are made from authentic patterns, historical photographs, drawings or specific patterns from customer's request. I also can use patterns you choose from your local retail store, just include the pattern name and number, in your e-mail when asking about pricing.

All of my garments are custom made to order, and I do not offer “off the rack garments” although I may sometimes have a display or sample dress you may be interested in.
