Hi! My name is Valinda.

I have been a seamstress since 2003, and have been sewing these designs since 2005. I promise high quality costumes and a customer service standard to match.

My dresses are made out of high quality satin, brocade & linings.

Each bodice is underlined with heavy weight interfacing and lined in cotton for comfort. Bodices can be boned on request. To make bodices adjustable for multiple sizes a unique zipper/lace up method was designed. For example this allows a size ten dress to have a zipper insert put in so it can fit a size 12, or be laced down to fit a size 6/8. The range of adjustments also can help with "hard to fit" body types.

Skirts are also adjustable. Multiple hooks and eyes or elastic waistbands give multiple sizes comfortable wearing. Skirts are not lined but can be for an additional fee.

These dresses are truly custom. Each is given individual attention and not manufactured in mass. They will not leave my home without my full satisfaction and confidence they are excellent quality both in beauty and durability. I will never ship out a dress that I would not be happy wearing myself. If there is ever a problem with any of the craftsmanship email me ASAP.

I am still looking for a fabric supplier. Some of the fabrics in the pictures may not be available; a similar fabric will be substituted.
