Everything was perfect, from the custom sizing to choosing just the right colours. The outfit always turns heads and has people asking who made it. Things arrived promptly, well packed and well made. See More

Me mum brought me a custom design waistcoat (police telephone box) for christmas. best waiscoat i've ever had. The quality is far better than all my other waiscoats that have aquired over the years wedding shops and top end suit shops. Service was incredibly friendly (even got a free cup of tea while i was discussing the design). The waistcoat was worth the money paid for it. From now on, i shall be getting any my waistcoats from here all the time. Thankyou for a truly amazing peice for my wardrobe collection See More

Loved my outfit. Jo's work never fails to impress me. Can't find fault.
The second commission of a bespoke corset made for me by Joanna was worth every penny. It fits superbly and was finished in time... for the Asylum as promised. See More

Jo created two screen accurate costumes for me from scratch just from screen shot images. She's a genius. Recommended for any costume builds!

I bought a Men's Victorian bathing costume off Blue Lady Couture last year. Really well designed, it fits a treat and looks brilliant.

If I'm a bit quiet, it's because I'm up to my eyeballs making ladies bathing costumes. In fact I'm surprised my eyes haven't gone squiffy with all the stripes! Ten of these need to be in America in a couple of weeks! Five done last week, so another five to do this week!

Today Facebook is informing me that my 1065 fans haven't heard from me in a while. Clearly my posts last week didn't count. Well, Facebook, this post better reach all of them then..... none of your doctored algorithm malarkey. In other news, here's a little slideshow of a custom version of our underbust waistcoat on it's way to it's new owner. You can see the original waistcoat design via the shop link. Let me know what you think.
Just one of a number of our luxurious velvet cloaks that went off to its new home in America today. This one is a delicious royal purple called 'Bilberry ' from our new range of velvets. The hood is lined in black silk and the entire outer edge is piped with silver satin. It's a floor length cloak, but my customer is so tall I had to drape it on the floor for the photos!
I've just finished three of these gorgeous bustle aprons for a theatre production of Hobson's Choice. Beautiful drapery, waterfall ruffles and a big bow, hand drafted from original fashion plates and the original 50s/60s film. I'm so pleased with them I might add them to my catalogue. The 'Miss Hobson Bustle' anyone?
