Here are a few words 
from our customers

“I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful cloak. It was a big hit and everyone loved it. It kept me warm through the best day of my life. Thank you again.” Renee F., via email - 2010


“I just wanted to let you know the gown arrived. It really is lovely and fits me better than I'd expected - almost exact - for an "available" item! I was wanting another gown, as my burgundy and black 8-gore gown was lost due to a small tornado I experienced last summer. I've been dreaming of an Eowyn green gown, but this beautiful piece certainly fills the need while I try to save for the more expensive gown in the future. As always, your perfect workmanship shines through. Thank you so much.” Kimy R., via email - 2010

“I received my order and I love it. I am happy with the quality of the material and quite impressed with workmanship. I come from a family of seamstresses and they are all perfectionists. I can't thank you enough!” Natalie S., via email - 2010

“My Galadriel Elven Gown was designed beautifully and to perfection! I have been dressing as Lady Galadriel since The Fellowship of the Ring first came out in the theaters and the gown you designed for me is undoubtedly the most beautiful, erethereal and deserving of a Queen of the Elves, that I almost cried when I first saw it.

You are truly an artist for you not only design gowns, but just in speaking with your customer, you capture them and somehow exactly how to design the gown. You picked the perfect color, which is amazing since all the information I could give you is that since my eyes are violet, I wanted the Elven gown to be that color to enhance my eyes. Your patience with me on my trying to decide on this exact color or color of sleeves, which put you having to rush to complete my gown, is most remarkable. My gown arrived in just three days from shipment and believe me for someone who lives in the Virgin Islands, that is a miracle.

I wanted to share some photos of me as Lady Galadriel, for I thought you might like to add them to your website as a most happy customer! I added quite a few, so you decide which ones you like best.

Again, thank you very much for making my best Queen of the Elves gown I have ever had!!!”
Delia J., US Virgin Islands - 2009


“The Zapp Brannigan costume was great and went over splendidly. Thanks again for the great job, and I’ll let you know in the future if I have any other crazy garment requests. Respectfully, Cadet McGee” via email - 2009

“OMG my dress is beautiful. Thank you so much. I can’t wait to send you pictures so you can see how amazing all of it really turned out.Thank you Thank you!” Angela T., via email - 2009

THANK YOU so very much. Our post office isn't open on Saturdays like most places and we justed missed the postman on Friday so my fiancee, Shane went and picked up the box on Monday afternoon. I told him he wasn't allowed to open the package and that he just has to wait until the 17th to see the dress. I finally saw the dress late last night after I got home. It all looks so wonderful, you did such a great job. I don't know to thank you enough. I will definitely send pictures with everyone wearing their outfits that you made. Thank you again.” Nancy P.,  via email - 2009


“I have been meaning to send you some photos of the cape in action. Many apologies for the delay! I got rave reviews and it turned out even better than I expected. Thank you for taking the time to work with me to help me get exactly what I wanted.”

“I wanted to thank you for your work on my beautiful wedding dress. The day was glorious, and you helped make me feel like a princess. I added crystals to the braiding at the top of the bodice to match those on my train, and it really set it off. Your workmanship was most excellent. Thank you so much.” Annie W., via email  - 2009


Wow! Those pictures are great! Thanks so much! May I put them on my site? You wearing the stuff is infinitely superior to my boring dress form pictures.”

“Yes. I also agree your pics do not show your talent to its fullest. Absolutely!!!! ” Tim G., via email  - 2009


“Everything was just perfect! I made some changes in my gown, by putting a red trim in neck and belt! It is my favorite colour...

Everyone loved my gown, and the simplicity of it, as in Greece most gowns are too much glossy and full of svarofski and stones! Some women asked your website to see!!!” Stela S., Crete - 2008


“You have done it again! The costumes are absolutely beautiful - we are thrilled with all of them. Thank you so much for all your hard work!!! You are so talented. Kate is so happy with your outstanding creations. Many thanks for getting it all done so quickly. You are a treasure.” Angela C., via email - 2008


“My costume director got to see the outfit last weekend, and she couldn't stop gushing about it. I'm so utterly thrilled to have something so beautiful and so well-made to wear! Just putting it on makes me feel the part of a charming and witty court darling.”
Callie M., via email - 2008


“I just want to say a big "thank you" for providing such a quality piece of clothing. I am so impressed with your work. It is truly wonderful to find a person and company that has such a unique idea and can follow through on it with such quality and precision. Looking at this dress, I think I can say, that I am truly blessed to have found your site on the internet and have this dress made. It is so perfect for me and for our wedding ceremony. My future husband is beside himself with how unique and perfect this dress is for me.
Once again, thank you!” Susan F., via email - 2007

“I can't begin to express how pleased I am with the dress, I felt like a fairytale princess and this day was the happiest of my life.  Thank you so much for being so great at what you do!” Thea T., via email - 2007

“I just received my kirtle and Normandy chemise. You are so wonderful. I really didn't expect to see it for another week or so. Your workmanship is impeccable, as usual. At first, I really could not tell which side was front when I went to try them on, and I had to look at the lace eyelets to really tell which sides were "right and wrong." The chemise is wonderful, too. It fit well and seems it will be very nice underneath the kirtle; and it should be very much cooler, I think, vs the more fabric of the standard chemises. They are washable!! Best thing ever about the items I've gotten from you, next to the fact that they are so beautiful and well made. They fit so well, I think I'm going bra-less. Comfort all around! Trust me, the pieces you've made for me are the only items I've ever worn outside my home that form to my body rather than making sure I have enough drape to hide the bumps and rolls. I'm that comfortable in them.”
Kimy Jo R., via email - 2007

“The dress was perfect! Here are some pictures although I am getting more as people send them to me. I am having a portrait done so I will send that also. The dress was warm, fit perfectly, and was stunning in the surroundings. It couldn't have been an easier process and you couldn't have been more helpful! Thanks for everything. Sincerely,” Reina R., Machu Picchu - 2007


“The shipment came in; everything looks awesome! Myself and all of my guys have tried theirs on, and everything fits perfectly. Thank you so very much, you have helped make our wedding perfect! We'll definitely be sure to send you some pictures. Thank you again for everything.” John S., via email - 2007

“We had high expectations for the Belle dresses, but you surpassed them all! We could not be more pleased with the quality and elegance of the dresses you made for Kate. Be prepared for lots of business from Houston as we proudly tell all our friends who made these exquisite dresses! Thank you for making Kate's dreams come true. She will surely shine as "Belle" in your wonderful designs. We are still just marveling at how perfect the dresses are. They fit beautifully, and the fabrics and finishes are superior. I am so glad I know about you and Fashions In Time.” Angela C., via email - 2007


“The clothing arrived yesterday, and we could not be happier with the results! Both the materials and workmanship are excellent, and the dress fits perfectly. My daughter also loved the cape, the hood was exactly as she had pictured! We will send you pictures of her wearing the dress and cape when she has been to the photographer in April. Thank you so much for your wonderful work! I probably should not say this, since we are sure to order again at a later date, but your prices are really way to low compared to the exellent quality of the garments! With best regards,”
Anita B., Norway - 2007


“I can't thank you enough. Of course, the quality can only be seen when you have the actual garment in hand and I was not disappointed in the least. Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for your patience with me. Your hard work and time paid off. The panné velvet was the perfect choice.

I can't thank  you enough or give you enough complements on your design and workmanship. Thank you so much for working with me. I enjoyed adding the fur, pearls and lace to the hood myself. I am no designer by any stretch of the imagination but it meant a lot to me to add some of my own touches to your impeccable work.

As you can see, the cloak absolutely made the ensemble. You have succeeded in making a 54 years old bride feel like a young princess. I can't wait for my fiancé to see me on Feb. 23rd! Thank you for my "magic" cloak!.”
Rhonda B., via email - 2007


“Got looks & fits great. Thanks!” Troy B., via email - 2007

I will certainly be writing to the British bridal magazines singing your praises and encouraging other British brides who are looking for period outfits to contact you. Thank you for everything, you have made an enormous contribution to mine and Steve’s very special day. Best Wishes.” Helen J., United Kingdom - 2006

“I completely forgot to send you pictures of my daughter in her prom dress! Here they are. She was a big hit at the prom and got a lot of attention from all the attendees. Hers was certainly the most unique dress of anyone there and she really enjoyed her evening because of it. This from a girl who HATES dresses and never even owned one until this dress! Thanks for doing a super job on it.”

You are amazing.  He's tickled to death, which absolutely only reiterates my happiness. It's exactly what he wanted. Hilary, once again, we both sincerely thank you for your talent, your patience and your kindness. Have a wonderful day.” Lisa S., via email - 2006

“I just received my dress the other day and it is amazing! It is exactly what I wanted, it fits perfectly, I couldn't be happier. Another satisfied customer,  thank you, thank you, thank you! Mary J., via email - 2006

“Thank you so much for all the effort you put into my wedding dresses. They are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! Your attention to detail and craftsmanship are better than anything I could have ever bought. I can’t even begin to think how you made such a beautiful dress that fit so perfect, from so far away! You are a sewing GODDESS! The bridesmaids are crazy about their dresses! I will have to cut my niece out of hers after the wedding because she doesn’t want to take it off. There are no words to describe how happy I am with my dress. When I saw my dress and tried it on, I knew that everything would be perfect!” Damon & Maria, Colorado - 2006


“I just want to let you know that I received the dress today, and it is just beautiful.  It fits my daughter perfect. Thanks so much for the excellent service. I really appreciate it. It has been a real pleasure to deal with you. This has been the most positive experience I have had in ordering a dress for the wedding. I wish the Bride would have had us order the same style of dresses for the rest of the bridal party. Thanks again.” Kerry P., Canada - 2005

My gown has arrived! It is truly stunning in every detail. The colours are beautiful, it fits and all my anxieties have been dispelled. Thank you so much for all your patience and hard work, and for listening to my endless fussy requests! My wedding day will now be complete. Although I have never been a girl to dream of white dresses, in my green and copper gown I will feel like a princess for the day and am looking forward to it.” Rachel T., United Kingdom - 2005


“Hello Hilary! You created my wedding dress, bridespeople costumes, groomsman costumes and parent's costumes in October, 2005.”


“I just wanted to finally thank you for all the hard work you did and last minute changes you made due to my bridal indecision!”

“I enclosed several pictures for you to view and show on your site. My dress and veil was everything I ever dreamed came out perfect! You were kind and patient with me throughout the entire process and thanks to you my wedding day was the best day of my life!”
Jennifer S., via email, 2005

“I just wanted to let you know that I recieved my cloak yesterday, and I am very happy with it!!! This is the black fitted cloak in wool with the matching coachman’s cape sewn onto it. It is everything I hoped it would be. I am sure when I wear it the rest of the Seattle Seafair Pirates will take notice and inquire where I purchased it. I will definitely recommend you to all of them!!! Thanks. P.S. I think I will order in a few months a lighter weight one to wear in fairer weather! Jeff H., via email - 2005

“My dress arrived today and it is PERFECT! It fits just wonderfully and I love the detailing you did on the collar. As soon as I have a chance I will take a picture in it and send it off to you.

The colors are exactly what I wanted and it fits perfectly, just like the first one I got from you - which is currently going through its 3rd faire season and still looks great. I've received many compliments on the bodice and always make sure to say where I got it. Thank you so much for offering nothing but well-made products to your customers for a good price! Thanks again.” Carly H., via email - 2005

“We had our trying on session for Jenny and the dress fit "like it was made for her". It not only was beautifully made but, best of all, Jenny looked beautiful in it.

“It is the MOST breathtakingly beautiful dress I have ever laid eyes on (and owned). Words cannot do justice to the splendor of the garment. It's a great joy to see those fabric and lace swatches we ruminated upon, transformed into such a work of art. As always, you are magnificent. PERFECT FIT!! Now I know how good Queen Bess felt all the time, dressed in those heavy rich brocades. A very good feeling, indeed.” Mary S., Singapore - 2004

“I received my dress yesterday! It is beautiful. Thank you so much. I have heard of people going to a seamstress 3 and 4 times and still getting a dress that doesn't fit correctly, yet mine fits like a glove. There aren't words to tell you how much I truly like my dress. I can't wait to wear it. I would be glad to tell anyone what a wonderful experience working with you has been, and how pleased I am with the dress.” Cyndi H., via email - 2004

"I received the package today. Everything is absolutely beautiful and fits great! Thank you so much for helping me have the best costume of the Pirate's Masquerade Ball!" Robin M., via email - 2004

"I wanted to thank you again for the beautiful wedding cloak. I can't tell you how many people wanted to know where in the world I found my "beauuuuutiful cape." :) (I was sure to refer them to your website!) The cloak was a big, big hit! I wore it into Alyeska Resort, where our reception was held. It was wonderful to have, as it was only a few degrees above zero that night. We made a formal entrance with the wedding party and walked up the Grand Staircase at the hotel, where all of our guests were gathered and waiting for our arrival. I've attached a picture our photographers captured as my husband and I were making our way up the stairs. I think you'll be able to see how happy we were that day. Know that the smile on my face is there partly because of you. It felt like it was in a fairy tale. What a beautiful wedding it was...thank you again for adding such a special touch to this memorable day." Meghan L., via email - 2004


"I received the gowns and they are just beautiful. Thank you so much! I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how pleased we are! All three of them can't wait until the wedding so they can show them off. With the quality of your work and your dedication to customer service, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I will be recommending your website to anyone who wants to know where to get the best! Thanks again!" Kim S., via email - 2004

"I got the package two days ago and I am very pleased! the chemise is oh so comfy and not see through! The bodice fits like a glove and the fabric is the perfect color, and now I can reverse it and with the two skirts I already have, I can make four outfits! Thanks so much for your quality and speediness the companies said it would take three times longer to make and ship the bodice and for almost twice the price, I am telling everyone at the ren faire about your wonderful company." Jennifer S., via email - 2004

"I recently returned from my trip home for Thanksgiving and I got to see my cloak while I was there. It's BEAUTIFUL!!! I absolutely love it. My dad says I look like royalty - and when I'm wearing it, I feel like it, too. :) It's just perfect. It has been a true Alaska winter this year - crisp and cold with lots of snow and multiple appearances by the Northern Lights, too! I'm getting so excited for the wedding (it's just a few weeks away now)! I can't thank you enough for adding such a special touch to my wedding ensemble. I'll be sure to send you a picture after the wedding. Thanks again." Meghan B., via email - 2003

"Your package arrived in fine condition this morning. I must say that your dress is everything that I hoped for. It is stunning! I am very pleased, and will certainly come back to you in the future, and also recommend you to all of my friends. Thank you again for an absolutely wonderful present to give to my daughter this Christmas!" Richard Y., via email - 2003

"I received my two-tone purple circle-sleeve princess dress and it fits beautifully. I met you on the second day of the Renaissance Faire in Woodstock, CT and you gave me your card so I could custom-order a dress from your website. I must say I am very pleased with the quality, workmanship, fit, and style of my dress and my boyfriend loves it too! Thank you for creating such a wonderful garment for me." Lee D., via email, 2003

"I just wanted to let you know that the gown arrived today, and it's absolutely gorgeous! It fits like a glove and I can't wait to wear it to the party. Thank you so much for all of your hard work! It was an absolute delight doing business with you. I'll be sure to send you some photos of me wearing it ;)" Sarah Z., via email - 2003

"My cloak arrived today, and it is perfect. The hood is just as I hoped, and the soft mossy green that you chose for the lining is lovely. I could not be happier, and thank you so much for putting up with the last minute change on the hood. You're great!"
Mary L., via email - 2003

"First of all, the cranberry/burgundy color is perfect and second, the over all bodice is beautiful! I tried making my own, but it just didn't fit right . . . yours fits like a dream! The one thing, besides being reasonably priced, that made your bodice stand out more than many others was the fact that you would actually use my measurements to custome make it. When I saw that I didn't dare go anywhere else! This bodice is the perfect piece to add to my small faire wardrobe, which I hope grows. Thank you again for being a very nice person to deal with. I'll be more than happy to tell anyone who asks, where they can find such a beautiful bodice (and much more)! Thanks again." Carly H., via email - 2003

"Thank you for the beautiful dress, it was beautiful and did the job and can't wait to start wearing it to the Renaissance faires this year. It is nice to have wedding dress that is versatile and not one that has to be packaged up after using on those glorious days of wedding bliss. Thank you again." Kelly H., via email - 2003

"My dress was delivered and it is so beautiful...and it fits like a glove. I love the back with the gold laces. You out did yourself. Thanks so much and I will send you a couple of pics from the wedding." Debby G., via email - 2003

"Just wanted to let you know that I picked up my corset today, and I'm really happy with it. The fit is good, and I think it will get me through this faire season nicely. I recently signed on to assist the wardrobe mistress for the Greater St. Louis Ren Faire, and I'm thrilled to find a decent corset made to a person's measurements that people can actually afford. Thanks much, and I'll remember to drop
names." Linda T., via email - 2003

(I believe she would wear it constantly if she could.) Also, I was impressed by your prompt responses and courteous emails letting me know exactly what shipped. You're a class act. Much appreciated!"
Ramona A., via email - 2002

"I am so sorry that I've been ordering chemises from others all this time, when I could have been ordering from you!!! I received and LOVE my newest chemise!

Shannon M., via email - 2002

"I just wanted to let you know I received my stuff today...and I couldn't be happier. I have ordered alot of stuff online. Particularly Renaissance garb...and very rarely been satisfied with what I received. Not only am I satisfied, but I could not be happier with everything. Thank you so much. I will most confidently refer anyone I know of looking for Renn wear to you. Not only are you good...but you're fast as well. I just can't say enough. If you have a customer feedback page please feel free to post this there. Sincere thanks." Robin L. via email - 2001

"I just wanted to say you did an outstanding job on the bridesmaids dresses for my daughter's wedding. Everything came off perfect without a hitch and it was a beautiful wedding.

Sicily C., via email - 2001

"I received my cloak this past weekend and it's great! :) Thanks :) Fits great and feels better than I was expecting...Thanks again, and I will definitely keep you in mind when I find myself looking for period clothing." Anthony C., via email - 2001


"This is my version of a thank you note, I have been all over the net seeking corsets and farthingale's before I decided on yours...quite honestly because you were the cheapest I found.

What I was expecting to get for about 2/3 the price of what everyone else was quoting and what I got really surprised me so much that my friend also ordered a corset and farthingale from you.

This was my first attempt at an actual period costume and not the generic peasant that most people attending Renissance festivals go with, and without your farthingale and corset it would not have worked out.

Thank you for an excellent value that made my efforts possible." Laura R., via email - 2001

"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know I received the cloak on Monday. It is absolutely beautiful! It turned out even more lovely than I had hoped for, and I wanted to write and let you know how much I enjoy it. I will no doubt have many inquiries in the future as to where I obtained it, and I will be most pleased to brag about your work! Thank you so much!" Olivia V., via email - 2001

"We just received our first ever order. My chemise came just in time for my 1st night in my new wrought iron canopy bed. I felt like a princess in a fairy tale! All my life I wanted such a garment, but never knew where to get one. Because you asked for my measurements, it fit like a dream! Very unusual for me as I am a little bit tall. It is just the right length and the sleeves are scrumptious. Even my husband approved! We can hardly wait to go to the faire in "costume". THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" Mary B., via email - 2001

"The girls and I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job you and your dressmakers did on our bridesmaids dresses. I have to be honest and tell you that this is the first time I had six dresses made by someone I never even met! When I first talked to you on the phone, you were very informative and put me at ease immediately. The wedding ceremony was beautiful. Thank you!"
Annemarie, Angela, Karl Ann, Carol, Stephanie, Kristen, and Sharon, via email - 2001

"My 9 year old daughter is doing a "Medieval Times" project in grade 4 (comparing clothing then and now). We found your website and catalogue to be informative and resourceful! Your "costumes" are wonderful!!! I am a graphic designer by profession and appreciate all of the work you have done. We both, thoroughly enjoyed our tour! Our compliments to you!" Judy P., via email - 2001

"Hilary is about the easiest person I have ever worked with. She listens very carefully to what you'd like, makes very useful suggestions about fabrics and styles and sews like a whiz! She is incredibly fast and never makes a promise she doesn't keep. What's more, the single time I was disappointed in a sleeve length, she took the item right back, no questions asked, and fixed it within days. She has sewn many items for me, one from a photo I'd sent of a dress I admired. How she managed to make that dress to fit my measurements perfectly, with me not there for fittings is a miracle. Somehow, she always makes me look like a princess, though I am far older and larger than the traditional fairy tale princesses of yore *chuckle*. I have had her sew clothes for my daughter and recommended her without reservation to several of my friends. Needless to say, they are thrilled with her work as well.

"The dress is AWESOME. My mom was a sewing teacher for a long time and taught me and my sisters, so it was ingrained in me what a careful seam is, etc. (Unfortunately her skill didn't rub off on me as it did my sisters; in fact, my younger sister is a costume designer in LA, and I would love for her to see this gown.)...I am so happy I wandered onto your Web site. I will continue to peruse the Fashions in Time site to see what else you might have there; this was a true find, and I am thrilled." Margaret V., via email - 2000
