Describe your Experience.
Pros: Amazingly talented Seamstress. Even though the beginning was rough, she was amazing to work with and was very kind and understand. The outfit is accurate to a tee. Nothing even slightly out of place. A perfect replica.
Cons: It started in June of last year. I contacted Miyori about doing a commission and she gladly accepted. However I had her on a tight time line.
The first time I received the outfit it was not what was expected. It was a rush job, and there were quite a few things wrong. Hem not sewn, threads...basically a mess.
At first I was angry, but I soon realized that it was not her fault, but rather my own. I had requested something in a ridiculous time line, so she could not be blamed at all for it. She is a busy girl in school, and I had expected too much in that short amount of time.
In the end I was the one at fault for this mess. Never Miyori, and I as a commissionie accept that.
I contacted Miyori a day later, asking if it was possible to have it redone, with a larger time line. She accepted and agreed to only charge me for materials. A fair trade and I couldn't be more happy we did. I just wish I had more to pay her. And I think I will.
Comments: I couldn't be more happy. I finally got the outfit I have tried to get for two years now, and finally without being ripped off. The sew job and everything is amazing. Nothing is to complain about, and I would gladly work with Miyori again if she would allow it XD I could not recommend her more!
Final Grade: A+++++
