WHEN WILL THE COMPLETE BASIC LATIN/SKATE BE READY?
In a sense, it’s ready now…

You skaters and Latin/Rhythm dancers don't need ballgown skirt training! (Unless you make gowns for other dancers and skaters.)

So that you don’t have to wait another day to begin making your dream dress, I created a giant Latin/Skate course that can replace the ballgown skirt training

These three Latin/Skate skirts are versatile, high-impact and have lots of movement.

Please inquire if you are interested in adding this to the COMPLETE BALLGOWN PROGRAM or if you wish to replace the ballgown skirt training...  teresa@seamssensational.com

 

 

 

WHAT IF I ONLY WANT TO LEARN ABOUT MAKING FLOATS OR RHINESTONING?
WHEN WILL THE INDIVIDUAL MODULES BE AVAILABLE?

Sorry, but at this point in time no individual modules are being released. I’m not sure when I will make those available.

For the foreseeable future I want to focus on what will most help you learn to SLP, which is, of course, the complete programs because they have everything you need in a logical, easy-to-follow sequence.

What is the difference between the BASIC and ADVANCED programs? (special videos inside) +

WHAT  IS  THE  DIFFERENCE  BETWEEN  THE  "BASIC"  AND  "ADVANCED"  PROGRAMS?

Both COMPLETE programs contain comprehensive training that walk you through every step of the dressmaking process.

No short cuts or training is left out the “basic” program. No magic steps are included in the "Advanced" program.

Think of it in terms of cooking, a gourmet chef has impeccable must-know skills that allow her to make either a casual evening meal or a more complex 4-course dinner. No matter which type of meal she chooses to prepare, she uses the same basic skills.

More complex dishes require more ingredients and more sauces than quick meals. Gourmet dishes also require more time, more work and more experience to pull it all together.

So with that in mind, the concept of "basic" versus "advanced" is not as much sewing-related as it is design-based.

 

IS  THE  COURSE  CURRICULUM  DIFFERENT  FOR  EACH  PROGRAM?

A few of the items are exactly the same in both programs:

measuring and pattern making
bra cup & elastic bonus training in modules 4
the 1.5 hours of training of "must know" rhinestoning tips

 

Some modules overlap the types of information offered, but are further specialized for the particular program. These modules include:

design and materials
cutting, basting and sewing
fittings

 

By popular request I recently decided to co-share these two programs:

mesh sleeves and upper body mesh coverage = original to the Advanced program, is now included in the ballgown program. ​​​​​​​This includes training to make mesh sleeves that cover the chest and back but has no armhole seams.

complete basic ballgown skirt training = original to the ballgown program, is now included in the advanced program.

straight and fluted skirts
ruffles
godets and gores
hem techniques: fishing line, crinoline (horsehair), rolled edge

 

Please watch the video (top of this page) or read the brochure (the next two Qs in this section) for more details about the curriculum and the exact schedule.

Please watch the video above (with the black and white dotted dress) beginning at about the 13:00 mark for photo examples of both basic and advanced dresses ... OR ... watch the two short videos below made especially to introduce each of the programs.

 

WHAT  TRAINING  IS  UNIQUE  TO  EACH  PROGRAM?

The COMPLETE BASIC BALLGOWN program is the only place you will find:

      • chiffon/georgette drapes (i.e. "floats")
      • lace: choosing, application, how to paint and dye
      • feathers: full boas and how to make tiny clusters
      • special ways to create additional skirt volume and flare including ruffles, points and swags

     

ADVANCED #1 FOR LATIN, SKATE AND GOWNS is the only program offering:

      • beading
      • fringe
      • yoke attachments for ballgowns, Latin and skate skirts
      • complex cut-away designs that create accent shapes

     

WHICH  PROGRAM  IS  RIGHT  FOR  ME? 

If you are new to dance and skate dresses, the BASIC BALLGOWN PROGRAM is perfect!

It walks you through every step of the entire process.
NOTE: I do not recommend the Advanced Program for those who are new or have minimal experience with making dance and skate dresses.

If you are an experienced dressmaker, either program is great.
You will learn all the essential skills, professional tools and tips you need to improve speed and efficiency on your "basic" and "advanced" designs.

If you are a moderate-level dressmaker,
the ADVANCED PROGRAM may leave you feeling overwhelmed with using multiple types of fabrics, applying skirts yokes and/or creating special cut-away design areas.

 

Ultimately, the program choice is your decision based on your sewing skills and design needs.

I would love to chat with you to discuss which option is the best way to revolutionize your dressmaking needs so you can save money, make money and have flexibility in costuming.

Feel free to email me directly with any questions or to set up a time for an online video call: teresa@seamssensational.com

 

PLEASE NOTE:  Upper body mesh as shown in the Advanced Program is now included in the COMPLETE BALLGOWN PROGRAM! ... it was added after the video was made 🙂
