"The corset arrived and is a beautiful fit.
Wonderful work. Thank you! This is the best fit yet
from our patterning. Thank you. I’m just starting
to season it now, but the laces are lovely and straight
at the back and the shape is beautiful." Ms. T

Located in Oakland, CA, and via email/online,
Sheri is our choice for the
most comfortable, durable waist-training corset, suitable
for long wear with minimal seasoning. She is the choice
of many of our coaching program students (and Ms. T) for the above
Sheri also has a special flair for the dramatic and the
artistic, and specializes in working with
unusual patterned and metallic leathers and PVC. She
loves to create
fanciful corsets as a basis for evening wear, wedding gowns,
costumes, such as her Russian Princess ensemble, seen
We also adore Sheri's dramatic sea-themed
"Octocorset" modeled during her fall, 2012 trunk show at
famed Britex fabric store. Just when we think we have seen it all, Sheri comes
up with yet another stylish or outlandish theme corset and
is her own best model. Thus, clients are invited to inquire
about their own fanciful and original designs for costumes,
sweeping ballgown skirts, and sexy posture collars and
gauntlets to coordinate with your corset, seen below,
modeled by our corset-enthusiast German friend, Martina.
Sheri is our most experienced corsetiere/seamstress and
has been working in the specialty custom corset and fashion
business since 1990. She joined ROMANTASY'S team
in 1992. Her creations for our clients include
well over a
thousand corsets produced in that time frame, in addition
to creating corsets for an equal number
of her own private clientele.
Long experience in the field benefits appreciative
clients with Sheri's always spot-on advice.
Sheri is expert at fitting full-figured clients. (Please
note however, that fittings of the interim cotton
for an OVERBUST corset style, must be in person with Sheri at
her Oakland, CA location.)
also delights in working with brides. Note pictured right, a recent bridal
ensemble created for the Modern Eden gallery owner.
For a more "Southern Belle" image, Sheri's
skirts are cartridge-pleated for maximum fullness, often
utilizing eight yards of fabric!
She's a busy lady, not only a noted corset and costume
maker, but also past Events Coordinator of the Greater Bay Area
Costumers' Guild and a current active member. She has
been making costumes since she was a teenager, and
learned to make corsets as undergarments for costumes.

- "I love wearing my new pink corset and
I'm following the rules. Wore it successfully today,
I even cinched it up myself. Please add me to your
email list - I'm a serious waist trainer.

- "I received my Sheri corset last week. It was
wrapped so artistically that I was almost hesitant to
open it--almost. When I did open it, I was not only
astounded by it's incredible beauty, but also shocked to
realize how small it was, and that my waist is really
that short! The fabric is gorgeous, and it is readily
apparent how much skill and care went into the crafting
of this garment." Angela (1/27/11)
- "Ann and her team of corset-makers and
seamstresses do exquisite work. Ann was especially
great when planning my wedding outfit. Her wedding
consultations are worth every penny, and I highly
recommend that service. She helped me choose Sheri to
make the perfect corset, skirt, gloves, etc. The results
were just wonderful- everyone was amazed by my wedding
ensemble!" Nicole (Yelp review; Sept. 2010)
- "I received my new navy and magenta silk
Sheri corset and it is beautiful!"
- "I picked up my corset on 12/26. Wow!!! It is
Beautiful!!!! Sheri did a absolutely wonderful job!!!
- "First off I wish to express how happy I am
with the custom corset created for me by Sheri.
It not only looks beautiful but seems quite durable and
sturdy for many years of use." Jennifer (11/29/07)
- "OMG! It's absolutely
beautiful!! I couldn't stop touching my new corset and am very,
VERY impressed on how well made it feels and looks.
Definitely a quality piece of work. I am very excited
to start learning how to put it on and wear it, but
will obediently read your words before trying. Please pass on my
grateful admiration to Sheri, as she did a spectacular job. I will definitely
give you progress reports as I slowly start my training.
Warmly and enthusiastically yours." Susan V. (6/13/07)
