- Each video call lasts 1 - 1.5 hours.

Lastly, I already loaded several hours of bonus video and a Neckline Success homework assignment to our design challenge Facebook workspace. It's ready for you to jump in with both feet.
I hope to see you in the classroom!
Are you tired of competing in costumes that have the wrong neckline and offer no bust support?
Are you fed up wearing dresses that have the wrong skirt shape for your thighs?
Do you really want another skating dress that makes your tummy look bigger?
What if you knew which skate dress design elements look best on your body shape and size?
Do you think if you looked beautiful in your costume - accentuating all the right curves - that your skate performance would improve?
How do I know?
I know, because I used to compete professionally in Theater Arts and American Rhythm in the ballroom world. That's me on the right, flying through the air. After I retired from competitive dance, I began taking ice dance lessons.
More importantly than all that, I know how adult skaters (and dancers) want to feel in her costumes because I have heard almost every success story and costume-melt-down story during my 30+ years of making custom dresses.
Also, my Sew Like A Pro™ sewing school members in twelve countries, add further testimony to how important a proper design is for competition costumes.
How you look and feel when you glide onto the rink, makes a tremendous difference in how you perform.
In the Skate Dress Design Master Class, you will get the tools and training you need to design your own perfectly-sculpted dress that flatters your figure.
I hope you can set aside three days to join me and hundreds of skaters from around the world for my 3-Day Skate Dress Design Master Class.
You'll be glad you did. 😉
