“Having cried in the face of ill-fitting clergy shirts I felt that heaven on earth had come when I put on this dress. I was back! No longer condemned to a life in men’s clothing; this dress is an absolute must if you wish to retain your sense of femininity whilst still looking as required!

The first time I wore it a friend saw me in the street and asked where was I going as I looked so good. Me, I was actually on the way to a funeral. Personally I am so grateful that Camille is here at this time!”

“I love my gathered waist clergy dress. I feel professional, polished, and beautiful when I wear it. I wore it for my ordination and received so many compliments on it. It gives me a waist…Love that!!! The fit is fabulous and I am wanting to order another one… I have recommended House of Ilona to many of my clergy friends. I am so glad I took the risk to order on line…It was scarey —but the return was super.

“This clergy dress is absolutely, gorgeous and beautifully feminine! It is designed with female clergy in mind. The gathered waist is not only the most comfortable but also most appealing in my opinion. What I love about it this garment is that I can sit in the pulpit comfortably without being concerned about anything. I was so pleased with my purchase that I ordered a second one in navy blue. Also, this garment is well crafted and true to size UK to US conversion chart. 
This dress is very versatile in that you can wear it with the clergy collar insert for a more formal look or remove the collar to wear it alone or with scarf or other accessories. Every time I wear this dress I receive so many complements. This is a “must have for any female clergy that needs to have an awesomely beautiful black dress. Well worth the price, indeed!”

“It would be robbery if I did not take time to write a review on this dress. I am an ordained minister in my denomination but never wore clergy attire because to me it always looked uncomfortable and masculine. When I found out that I had to be in clergy attire for our state convention this past June, I ordered this dress. I received so many compliments on this dress! In addition to the dress being stylish, it is so comfortable. So many of my fellow female ministers pulled me aside to ask me where did I purchase this dress. And to top it off, they went to my administrative bishop to get the ok for this dress to be the official attire for the women. As of last night I am still getting calls about my dress! Thank you so much for making sure that it came in a timely matter. I have told about 50 ministers about your website. (No exaggeration, maybe more). I will continue to be a customer and to tell other female ministers about your clergy collection. God bless you!!”
