Below you'll find a selection of my favourite customer letters of thanks, testimonials and Etsy feedback, all from just the past 18 months.
Megan - 3/4 pure silk top hat with birdcage veil - Etsy Custom Order.
The wedding was beautiful and I got so many comments on my fabulous hat! (Of course, I sang your praises as my source for "something special I had made in England!") In fact, I was recruited by a salon owner to model for a local TV advert the week after the wedding. She confessed to being "obsessed" with my tophat.
Teri, you are an absolute gem! I have passed on your business card already and fear I may need more.
Thank you again; thank you a million times for your beautiful handiwork on a treasure that will remain in my family and my heart!"
Anna - 3/4 size pirate tricorn and eye patch. "I got my hat and eyepatch and today. All I can say is the photos really don't do them enough justice. You've really outdone yourself. They are just stunning. I'm just gobsmacked by your talent.
I'm actually speechless... It's gorgeous! xx"
Clare - Silk 'Mad Hatter' tea party 4" mini top hat and matching garter - Etsy Custom Order.
"Custom order recieved today and it is beyond Brilliant. The whole process with Teri was a pleasure and hat and garter are beautifully made and I can't wait to wear them on my wedding day."
"The item shipped internationally within days. I was delighted to see that the picture didn't do the garter justice. It's beautiful! It's the perfect blend of delicate, well-made, with a flare of spice. The garter is quickly becoming a close second to my wedding dress as my favorite piece for the big day!"

Anna and Dan's Star Wars and Buttons Wedding
"Just wanted to let you know that I received all of my wedding goodies today! I absolutely adore everything you've made and can't wait to wear them - The shoes especially, are to die for. The garter is beautiful and fits perfectly. The ring cushion is gorgeous! And the little buttonhole/brooch you made is so cute I want it for myself! You already know that I am positively *in love* with my hat! I knew you'd make me something beautiful but this is something else! I absolutely adore it, you've managed to make my weird, eclectic theme really cohesive and just stunning.
Thank you so much for all your hard work Teri. You've been just wonderful from start to finish - creative, intuitive, helpful and generous. Not only have I found a brilliant seamstress who will make me LOTS of pretties, I think I also found a great friend! Be 100% assured that I will be back for more of your lovely creations
Love and hugs!
Andrea and Steve's Steampunk Wedding
"I contacted Teri approximately 6 months prior to our wedding, Despite the short time frame, Teri enthusiastically accepted the challenge.
Her creative skill and knowledge of what would work in practice meant that she was able to ensure my vision came to fruition. Teri patiently consulted with me on many occasions, with design ideas, fabric choices etc and even ordered swatches for me. She provided clear time frames and costs, which she did not exceed, so there were no hidden costs, well only when I asked Teri to make additional items.
In the end Teri made my dress, bolero and hat, 4 complete bridesmaids outfits (including mini toppers) and 6 groomsmen cravats. In addition to this, her husband made all the wedding party fantastic goggles.
We were all extremely pleased with our outfits, which were admired by everyone. Teri helped to ensure that our vision of a Steampunk wedding was realised. We are extremely grateful to Teri for helping to create such a special day and deliver a friendly, personal and bespoke service at such a competitive price and within such a short time frame. Thank you."
