About us:

We make pieces that are beautiful, they fit, and they last. We are always only a call or email away. We’ve lived in Grass Valley, California, for 35 years, designing clothes and costumes; everything is made here in our hometown, providing employment and skills-training in our lovely community.

If it comes to having to return a piece, we ask only that it has not been worn and still has the original tag attached. Enclosed with each purchase is a free return label, but it expires in 15 days, so check the date on the label.
