Welcome to Taken By the Sky! We are a family owned business located in Gresham, Oregon. Taken By the Sky began in 1998 when Laura and Chris first made costumes for the High Desert Celtic Festival. In those days, we didn't know much about boning, grommet machines, or how hot a human being can be when wearing several yards of fabric on a very hot day. No patterns were available for our children, and we didn't like what was available for grown-ups, so all our patterns were designed by Laura that year, and have been ever since.

We are dedicated to making the finest dresses and costumes and to making every woman feel beautiful. Most of our creations are one of a kind, so you will never have to worry about walking through the faire and running into several other women wearing the same costume. Each costume is cut and sewn individually (never mass produced) right here in the Pacific Northwest, in a smoke free home by Laura, Chapelle and Braden, with occasional pitching in from our other offspring. Please feel free to contact us with questions, comments, or just to say hi.
