AN ONLINE SEWING SCHOOL TO MAKE DRESSES
FOR DANCESPORT & COUNTRY DANCERS,
ICE & ROLLER SKATERS?

 

 

  • Dancesport, Country, and Skate costumes have been my specialty since I began my company, Seams Sensational, in 1993.
  • I have professional ballroom competition experience, and used to take ice dance lessons for fun (not competition). I know how costumes shoulde fit so a competitor looks and feels her best.
  • With the cost of lessons, shoes & boots, competitions, and travel on a steady increase, more and more women are attempting to make her own costumes (or her daughter’s) to save money.
  • There was a huge gap in the Dancesport, Country, and Skate industries for the DIY dressmakers. They had no support or source of comprehensive training. I wanted to fill that gap, so I created the Sew Like a Pro™ courses.

 

The first decade of making dance and skate costumes, I struggled to get dresses to fit as well as I thought they could. I’ll just say it. Struggling sucks.

I wanted a more efficient way to make custom dresses while maintaining my high standards and client satisfaction.

It wasn’t easy, but with each dress I created better techniques to where I can do an incredible fit on almost any body type.

 

I created Sew Like a Pro™ to be exactly what I wished I’d had twenty plus years ago.

At competitions, I regularly see women wearing a homemade gown.

How do I know it’s a homemade dress?

The style is often out of date, the skirt is too short or they use funky, non-stretch fabrics that a professional dressmaker would not use.

Many times, I see those same women not look or feel as confident as they could – and therefore not get the scores they are capable of – because the dress doesn’t fit well, doesn’t look fashionable or they are worried and self-conscious about the dress.

Also, every year I get dozens of emails and phone calls from women who made a dress that was a semi-disaster. They want to know if I offer advice on how to fix that dress they made so they can wear it.

  • I don’t want the do-it-yourself customers to continue fighting with fabrics and wasting countless hours reinventing the wheel that we call dressmaking.
  • I don’t want women to walk or skate into the competition arena and feel inferior or self-conscious because their dresses don’t fit well or look homemade.

 

I want to be able to help thousands of Dancesport and Country dancers, Ice and Roller skaters around the world make gorgeous, well-fitting dresses so they look and perform better!

CAN I LEARN HOW TO DO THIS WITH THE SEW LIKE A PRO™ COURSES?

YES!

 

 

 

Most women in the program make dresses for themselves or for women at the local rink or studio. Some make dresses for their daughters. A few of the women in the program don't dance or skate, but want to make dresses as a source of income.

During all aspects of the COMPLETE BASIC BALLGOWN and the ADVANCED PROGRAM FOR LATIN, SKATE & GOWNS, I teach you how to make costumes for yourself or for others.

I included a 4-part PRODUCTIVITY PLANNER that helps you track time, materials and expenses. I suggest using this for every dress, even if you sew for yourself.
