 Can I learn to design a figure-flattering Latin dress? 

YES!

 

Sherri Hansen, dressmaker, Teresa Sigmon ballroom dancing costume Latin dance dress

 

"Designing a figure-flattering dance or skate costume requires very little 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.

In my Latin 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.

Look at me wearing this gorgeous red Latin dress.  It was made by one of my Sew Like A Pro™ members.  If Sherri can do it, so can you!"

LIVE VIDEO TRAINING:  Every day on April 29 - May 5, 2021, I host a live design training video conference .  Each session lasts  1.5 - 2 hours.

Please note:  as soon as you register for the masterclass, you can begin training with lessons already loaded to the site.  I will also be doing impromptu live coaching before the class officially begins on April 29.

 

DAILY HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:  I also suggest daily homework assignments. How much (or how little) you choose to do is up to you. Of course, the more active you are, the more you benefit.

DRESSMAKER APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING:  If you wish for even personalized design training or dressmaker training, each masterclass or challenge I offer a 3-Day dressmaker apprenticeship series that is only available to a limited group.

  • The apprenticeship group is limited to only 20 people so you have personalized attention for your sewing or fitting problems. 
  • In addition, you have the opportunity to learn from other apprenticeship member's questions.    
  • All three sessions are live, customized Q&A sessions held on Zoom. 
  • Each video call lasts 60-90 minutes. 
  • Replays are available until the end of each masterclass or challenge.
  • No holding back. No trade secrets withheld. I will answer all your dressmaker questions as openly and accurately as I would my Sew Like A Pro™ members. 
  • These apprenticeship sessions are platinum mine of information for those of you who sew dance or skate costumes, or who want to begin making them!

I hope to see you in the design classroom and in the dressmaker apprenticeship training!

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 competition Latin dance dress that makes your tummy look bigger?

 

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

Do you think if you looked beautiful in your ballroom dancing costume - accentuating all the right curves - that your performance would improve? 

Absolutely! 

 

Teresa Sigmon Bob Powers American Rhythm ballroom dancing Russia Sew Like A Pro

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, dancing in Russia with my American Rhythm dance partner.

After making a lot of competition dresses for myself and hundreds of clients,  I know how a dancer needs to feel in her costumes. 

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 fourteen 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 or walk onto the dance floor makes a tremendous difference in how you perform.

In the Latin Dress Design Challenge, you will get the tools and training you need to design your own figure-flattering costume. 

This MasterClass is ideal for beginning and advanced Latin dancers, Country dancers and Ice dancers! 

I hope you can set aside seven days to join me and hundreds of Latin, Country, Line dancers and ice dancers from around the world for my 7-Day Latin Dress Design Challenge.

You'll be glad you did. 😉

      Please address how to decide if a left or right slit is most effective given my body and more importantly (since I’m pretty symmetrical) the choreography.
