I don’t even know where to begin! I knew Bella had to create my Alice dress after seeing the detail in her live action Beauty and the Beast replica dress. I am big on paying close attention to detail and knew once I saw that dress that she was the one that had to make it!

I was completely blown away when I received the dress! It’s beautifully made, comfortable, and over all just a stunning dress. She’s worth the money! I wore this dress to Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland and received tons of compliments! People thought I was the “real” Alice and people loved the detail on my dress more than the version in the parks.

I will definitely be coming back to her for more dresses! Thank you Bella! You are amazing!

Thousand thanks for the nutcracker outfit!! It is so amazing, I have no words to say how magnificent it is. The outfit fits perfect!

It is exactly the same outfit as seen on the movie. In real life the costume is so much better as on the pics!!! My dreams came true!! I will order again soon!! I highly recommend this seamstress!!

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience when having my first custom dress made! Isabella listened to what I wanted the dress to look like and made wonderfully helpful suggestions to make my initial sketch even better. She helped me make decisions on fabric to ensure the dress would fit my description and budget. When sewing the dress, she sent me pictures, asked for my opinion every step of the way, and answered all of my questions honestly, with clear, understandable explanations.

After receiving the dress, some slight alterations needed to be made, and Isabella was happy and willing to make them immediately. She altered it perfectly and had it back to me a week later. Working with Isabella was an absolute pleasure. She’s talented, and the quality of her work and attention to detail is stunning! I highly recommend her!
