“I have been using Beverli Barnes Custom Design Inc. for more than a decade and absolutely love her work.  She has provided gowns to myself as well as every single articling student that has come through my office.  I have also recommended her to many of my colleagues.  Her gowns are custom fit and beautifully designed.  Her attention to detail helps make every single gown spectacular for that specific individual.  I highly recommend Beverli Barnes Custom Design Inc.”

“I have been dealing with Beverli Barnes for more than 25 years. Beverli has made all the Court Robes, Waistcoats, Shirts and Tabs for myself and my articled students who were called to the Bar. I hold Beverli in the highest esteem. She is not only a highly skilled tailor but is a contributing party to the community at large. I regularly recommend Beverli to anyone looking for custom tailoring, especially Court Robes. “
