Customer Comments


 Please will you pass on my thanks to all   at Costumes by Cloisters for the effort made over   my dress. We had a lovely evening on Saturday. I   had so many compliments on my dress. They   loved the design and the colour particularly of the   top. More importantly to me my husband was so   pleased and enthusiastic. I appreciated the   elasticated waist – it was very comfortable and   manoeuvrable; I didn’t have to adjust the elastic.   Diana


Dear Costumes by Cloisters,



I'm happy to say that my gown arrived this morning and it is absolutely beautiful. It fits perfectly and I am so impressed by the professional tailoring.  It's as if I was fitted in person!  Thank you, ever so much.  I will certainly send my friends your way.

I want to thank you because you made it possible for us to participate two events. Jane Austen Picnic with costume competition here in Sweden where we got an honour price !! The other event was in Bath where we were interviewed by BBC !! It was fantastic to meet people from different countries with the same interest. We learned to dance the very special country dance and it was really fun. It was also fun that the woman opposite the table in the gold gown asked me if my costume was made by you! We happened to sit at the same table. Lennart


 Dear Cloisters

Thank you so much for the dress and choosing the material. It is the most gorgeous item of clothing I own. It's beautiful and
fits perfectly. I love the style and adore the material! Thanks once again for a wonderfully personal and friendly service.       Belinda Hamblin                                                                                                                                         





Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into my wedding outfit. It was exactly what I wanted at a price that I wanted and was of higher quality than I could have expected for the price. It was nice to deal with people who could change things to suit my 'expanding' waistline at the last minute and who were always willing to please. I would recommend you to anyone who wants a bespoke outfit of outstanding quality at a great price.

Thanks again

I had an excellent evening, and the dress was, and has been, much commented on and complimented.
It really did the trick.
Thanks again.
Take care.




Hi Cloisters Costumes

The dress arrived today, it is stunning! I'll be in Bath on the 25th - I'm heading over for the JA fest and plan on wearing the gown to a Country Dance that night. But I will definitely be buying some more gowns from you - out of all the ones I have yours are the only ones made to a high standard and never have to be embellished/altered in the sleeves, bodice etc.

Hello Cloisters

Upon trying my bespoke, made to measure Regency wedding outfit on, I felt unstoppable. The suit has been made with the same love that I have for my beautiful bride, and I feel enormous pride to wear it upon my wedding day. Thank you so much for making my wedding outfit, one that reflects my character and truly makes me feel special on my most important of days.

Thank you Costumes by Cloisters for this fabulous regency gown I'm enjoying wearing. I have found doing business with you a true ease and pleasure. Great service, friendly, professional and I hadn't been out in this gown 20 minutes before someone complimented me about it, and it was with great pride I was able to tell them who made it for me, not to mention the fact I hadn't even met them and still the gown fit me like a glove! Well done cloisters Inspirations, I will most definitely be ordering from you again.  Nisrine Cunningham





Costumes arrived safely this morning! Already tried them on and really pleased with them - now all I have to do is work out how to tie a regency cravat! Thank you so much for your hard work - we can't wait to show the choir next week!

Dear Costumes by Cloisters

Dress arrived today and it is just so beautiful! I have always wanted a baroque style dress and I just love everything about this one. The fabric choice is stunning and it fits me really well. I can't wait to wear it tomorrow night.

This is the first time I have had a custom gown made and the experience was easy and fun. I was treated with enthusiasm and by the time I received my dress I felt like we were old friends. You were as excited about the dress as I was! The gown surpassed my expectations, I was thrilled with the quality of workmanship, custom details and the perfect fit.
