Izabela has been making my costumes for nearly 10 years and I have always been pleased with each of them . She has made me gowns from many different historical periods. For example ,for a 12C Queen , a 15thC Duchess , Queen Victoria's Mistress of the Robes and Lady Augusta who is currently preparing for the Maiden Voyage of the Titanic. Not to mention a Benedictine Abbess ! Often she has made me hats , belts , underwear, headdresses, veils and bags to go with them. All of these costumes have required very different fabrics and styles and all have been completely authentic and meticulously researched . She is happy to work with fabrics I have provided but has also helped with sourcing period correct fabrics when I have been unable to do so. She is always open to my ideas and happy to discuss different ways of achieving what I want, even when I'm not able to accurately describe it. She listens to my vague descriptions, then takes her pencil and paper and makes my dreams a reality . A few days later , as if by magic, I have the gown I wanted- on time , in budget and made to fit .
