Custom Design is as much an art as it is a science.
Attending dance competitions to keep up with the current costume trends along with drawing from a vast knowledge of previously designed costumes allows for the uniqueness of your creation.
I search to select the perfect fabric for your costume, allowing you to choose between several options to work within your budget.
Creating the pattern and fitting the style to the mannequin, all requires not just technical knowledge of design and construction, but also years of experience with materials and designs. I have 15 years of experience in the design and custom design.
Because we take great care in the preparation, planning and construction of your costume, we take orders in the summer for Fall completion. To secure a place on the schedule for next season, you may place a "Pre-Season" deposit of $50 per costume.
Orders may take up to 3 months for completion if placed in the month of Sept. Please e-mail for expected ship date.

You will be able to choose patterns that will best flatter your body type.
You will be able to choose your fabrics from several options I will select for you to best suit your skin coloring and figure. You will be given a number of fabric options and prices to be able to work within your budget. If you prefer, you may send fabric which you have purchased.
