20-year-old Lotte Lutjes from the Netherlands has a reputation for great fashion -- and has a specific talent for recreating pop superstar Taylor Swift’s most iconic looks.

The impressive seamstress, who is unable to stand for long periods of time because of a neurological disorder, hand-sews all of the outfits and some, like her white and yellow costume, can take more than 30 hours to make.

WELCOME TO THE FEARLESS TOUR FRIENDS -- I spent every day of my week off on this! I think this has been the hardest one so far but I like the outcome! it's also tearaway like the original, I'll try to get a video of that soon -- this is one of the outfits I'll be wearing to my REP shows in June! I still have to make the rest wish me luck omg

"Yes, the wheelchair is mine," Lotte tells Radio.com. "I have a neurological disorder so I use it for long distances or busy places or long days. I'm bringing it to the show so that's why I decorated it. The white & yellow outfit took about 30 hours I'd say, but I made the black one in a day and a half because it was kind of like a backup plan. I'd say that one was about 7 or 8 hours."

the old wheelchair can't come to the phone right now... why? oh cause she's dead! (yes I use a wheelchair, for long distances only because I have a neurological disorder)

Taylor herself has even noticed Lotte's incredible commitment. The 28-year-old singer has liked Lotte’s pictures in the past and even commented on her Instagram page.

I should've been quicker with the skirt but here's the YBWM outfit in action! I'll be wearing a different outfit underneath but I still have to sew that (help me I have THREE WEEKS) taking it off is LOW KEY scary but it works! ---- (@taylorswift @taylornation @josephcassell1)

Lotte says she has seen Taylor ten times in concert so far. Her first time was in 2011, and admits for her "it's always kind of been a tradition to dress up for Taylor's shows."
