A COMPLIMENTARY 20-minute consultation with Teresa Sigmon ensures she'll create the best one-of-a-kind sketches for your body shape and size.
Since body shape isn't the only consideration, the sketches will also suit your performance level, your personal fashion tastes as well as your sewing abilities.
Each design package contains THREE sketches, in color, with detailed notes. In addition, fabric recommendations, where to buy and how much are included for each sketch.
Like many of Teresa's dress clients, you may have a difficult time choosing your most favorite sketch to make first.

COMING SOON: This program is a fantastic compliment to the COMPLETE programs. It’s a skill you want because it’s so versatile and effective!
With gathered accents, you can create asymmetrical or symmetrical designs AND it can be used for all dance and skate styles.
It’s a particularly great way to spruce up no-rhinestone costumes. Not to mention that gathered areas can enhance a small bust line and (when used properly) can minimize a full tummy. You’ll learn when, where, why to use gathered accents to help create a figure you’ll love.
DETACHABLE SKIRTS: LATIN & BALLROOM
COMING SOON: This program is a fantastic compliment to the COMPLETE programs. You’ll learn how to make detachable skirts that go over a leotard (use with the BASIC program techniques) or that slide inconspicuously between the dress and the leotard (using the ADVANCED program techniques). Smooth, Standard, Latin and Skate skirt options are included.
*Detachable skirts are NOT recommended for high level skaters, ice dancers or pair skaters since there is no guarantee the skirts will not twist around or pull down during high velocity movements, lifts and tricks.
