“Designing a figure-flattering, bust-supporting costume for ice dance, figure skating, artistic roller costume, Dancesport and Country dance requires minimal creativity and no drawing experience.

I teach design more like a science than art. 

It’s about knowledge – knowing how to determine what works on each body shape, and what will likely not look good on your figure.

In my free, 3-day “I got your back!” Dress Design Challenge, I give you the skills you need to create sketches that accentuate your favorite body parts and minimize the areas you don’t like.

 Teresa's personal dance, skate and dressmaking experience.  

 

Are you tired of competing in costumes that have the wrong neckline and offer no bust support?

Do you struggle with designing or buying dresses that actually fit your body?

 

What if you knew which back neckline dress design elements look best on your body shape and size?

Do you think if you looked beautiful and felt confident in your costume - accentuating all the right curves - that your dance and skate performance would improve? 

Absolutely!

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 fifteen 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 Back Neckline Dress Design Challenge, 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 dancers and skaters from around the world for my free, 3-day "I got your back!" Dress Design Challenge

You'll be glad you did. 😉

 

 Absolutely no artistic or drawing experience required.
