Testimonials from 'While Shepherds Watched' Customers

Listed below are some of the wonderful comments I've received from delighted Parents and Grandparents about our costumes.

Just that little bit different

Thank you very much for the lovely nativity costume I bought for my daughter. It arrived the next day, in plenty of time for the dress rehearsals! Excellent quality and just that little bit different from the usual offerings.

Irene, West Midlands

Emma, Hertfordshire


Beautiful material, expert stitching, and fantastic service

The postman has just arrived with the parcel. I can't say how pleased I am with it! Beautiful material, expert stitching, and fantastic service. Price was perfect for the product. I will be recommending you and would be happy to be used as a testimonial. Thanks for enabling an ethical Christmas play.

Jonathon, Neath


I will definitely recommend your company

I just wanted to let you know that the costumes have arrived and are perfect! They are such lovely soft cotton and so much better than all the scratchy polyester ones in the shops! I won't need to make any alterations!

I'm so glad that the quality is still as good as it was when you made the costumes and I was very interested to see that the company in India has a connection with Bishopston.....I studied in Bristol and know it well! I'm very happy for my comments to go into your Testimonials page.

Often buying over the Internet is so impersonal and am very grateful for the prompt responses to my emails and very speedy despatch of the costumes. I will definitely recommend your company and I will definitely come to you first in the future for nativity costumes.

Really lovely quality and in gorgeous pinks and purples perfect for a little girl who was not a happy bunny having to be a shepherd in her christmas concert!

Thank you very much I will definitely recommend you in the future.

The colours are beautiful and the quality of the fabric simply superb

I did receive the costume yesterday morning very promptly - thank you so much the costume is lovely I must say the photo does not give it any justice, the colours are beautiful and so appropriate and the quality of the fabric simply superb. I didn't have a chance to try it on my child yet but I can see it is the right size - it is going to wear a rope/belt anyway so it will not be too long.


November 2012

Beautifully made and fits perfectly

Many thanks for the Joseph costume you posted to us to receive today. We are delighted with the outfit which is beautifully made and fits my four year old son perfectly. He thinks it is brilliant and is very easy for him to wear in next weeks production. A very easy to use website and a far nicer costume than any other I found when googling for a Joseph costume. Thanks very much and good to know it is cotton, fair-trade etc rather than the lurid polyester options available on other websites.... Happy Christmas!


December 2011

November 2011

A small part of Christmas has been taken care of

I have received my child's outfit (which is going to be an inn-keepers costume this year, and probably numerous other things in years to come!) Just wanted to say what a lovely outfit - I never thought I would be the type of Mum to buy my son's nativity costume but frankly, Christmas is quite a stressful time for parents and for a relatively small amount of money, which included postage, a small part of Christmas has been taken care of so and I don't have to worry it! Also, my son was able to choose the colour of tunic he wanted to wear which means he will be willing and happy to wear it. Not to mention that the outfit will be used again and again.

So once again, thank you very much - will definitely visit your website again next Christmas.


November 2011

It arrived today - Wow!

Thank you so much, it arrived today - wow what great service. My 6yo inn-keeper 1 (don't forget the 1 - very important apparently) is very pleased with it. It's a lovely costume and the cotton is beautiful. I look forward to his "There is no room at the inn" line said with as much style as his costume!

He will be so excited to see his costume

My grandson aged 6 is an angel in the school Nativity next week and he will be so excited to see his costume. His mummy is going to add some tinsel, but he is adamant that he "doesn't want to look like a girl", so this costume will be ideal. Thank you so much. I would be happy for my comments to appear on your website and would definitely recommend your site to my friends.

The costume is lovely, exactly what was shown on the website.

Website quick and easy to decide what outfit we wanted, and so simple to order. The costume is lovely, exactly what was shown on the website, he was so excited to put it on especially the head gear. I just hope everything goes well next week when they do the nativity play. Many thanks for a quick and efficient service/delivery.

I am so glad I found your site - the quality of the costume is excellent

Just wanted to say many thanks for your quick and efficient service. I ordered the Joseph Costume on Thursday and received it today (Monday), receiving an up-date on Saturday to let me know that my item had been dispatched. I have spent a few weeks now looking at many Joseph costumes but have been very disappointed by the lack of quality of material and manufacture. I am so glad I found your site - the quality of the costume is excellent, it is beautifully made and wonderful that it is certified fair-trade. My son is very pleased with it too and Mary will be proud to have such a well dressed Joseph on her arm! Many thanks again

Helen, Vale of Glamorgan

A huge thank you for the gorgeous costume I received this morning

Dear Lucy Just to say a huge thank you for the gorgeous costume I received this morning for my son. I love the sensible information given on sizing and close-up pictures of the fabrics, it was spot on! The courteous, friendly service was re-assuring. Delivery was very prompt and and the garments, neatly packaged. I look forward to future deliveries, come next Christmas!

Rachael, Dorset

Impressed with the quality

My 5 yr old daughter was desperate for a shepherds outfit for Christmas (and a James Bond suit, your guess is as good as mine). I was a bit dubious ordering from the web (last year it had to be an Elf suit and when it arrived it was flimsy, flammable.. Total tat.) I of course as always left it to the last minute and reluctantly took a chance. As soon as I emailed I spoke to a real person which was very reassuring. Then when the outfit arrived I was really surprised and impressed with the quality - and the fair trade information was lovely to read. As for my 5 year old daughter - she keeps touching it and showing off the quality to bemused passers by (it's not come off yet) -seriously! Unprompted. Can't get a better compliment than that!

Fiona, East Dulwich

No fuss seams, just comfort

Item received this morning so no problems with post. It looks lovely on and the fabric is gorgeous. As you say, no fuss seams, just comfort - and for my 6 year old daughter that's very important! Thanks again for a great service and an excellent product. I'll be back!!

Andrea, East Sussex

Amelia, Surrey

I was very impressed with the quality

I was very impressed with the quality of the angel tunic, the presentation (labels sewn in, neatly folded and ironed) and the speed with which you made it, given the short notice. It is wonderful to have something hand made that we can use again and again, is washable and will last a long time. Thank you very much for being so accomodating! I have already passed your details onto friends and would certainly come back to you in the future for any other nativity costumes we need.

Emma, Buckinghamshire
