The hoodie is a bit large on me but that is totally fine since I like baggy clothes anyway! It is not too tight and fits really nice. Very comfortable!

Very well-made. Everything is sewn together well and has held up really nicely.

The interior of the hoodie is lined with some shiny black fabric.

Very satisfied! She replied with a quote almost immediately.

It sometimes took her days or a week or two to respond. Although she took a while to respond sometimes, she answered any questions or concerns I had.

Very satisifed, she was very professional and very polite!

Project Completion Time

Very satisfied but it was completed right before I left for MFF so I wasn’t able to send out the final payment, and I did not have my hoodie for that con. But I do not blame the maker for this. I was definitely able to have it for FWA 2017 though!

Final Comments

I absolutely love how this hoodie came out, it is very well-made and everything is perfect! I get compliments on my hoodie all the time.

While she was very friendly and nice to work with, I’d recommend not commissioning this maker if you have a deadline in mind, as my hoodie took about 6 months to complete. If you don’t have a deadline in mind, I will say go for it! She makes such great hoodies and she is such a sweet person too.

It took a bit of a wait to complete my hoodie but it was absolutely worth it and I adore it! I would love to commission her again next time I am able to!
