WHERE TO COMMISSION: a list of seamstresses/tailors

We often tell people they can have garments commissioned if buying japanese brand clothing isn't an option, but without knowing where to turn, that advice doesn't help; so here's a list of links to websites/LJs of people taking commissions.
Please note that this database is neither exhaustive nor perfectly up-to-date; keep in mind that a commissioners' availability is subject to change.
It is also crucial to research any seamstress/tailor further should you be interested in commissioning them, as I cannot keep track of their feedback, nor guarantee the quality of their work or customer service.
