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.

MAKER INTERACTION AND COMMISSION PROCESS
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with all the aspects of communication between you and the maker.

 
How satisfied are you with how easy it was to initially contact the maker for a quote?
Very satisfied! She replied with a quote almost immediately.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
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.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
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!

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Extremely, I absolutely adore how the hoodie came out!

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Very satisifed, she was very professional and very polite!

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any 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! <3
