Teresa Sigmon, creator of the SEW LIKE A PRO™ training series, teaching YOU to make professional quality dance and skate costumes

 

WELCOME!

I’m delighted you are interested in Sew Like A Pro™, the online sewing school for those who make (or want to make) Ballroom, Latin, Country and Skate dresses.

My mission is to help you realize your full potential as a designer and dressmaker so you, or your clients, always look and feel fabulous.

Do you know how to sew street clothes but have not had the courage to try making a competition dance or skate dress?

Have you tried making a dance or skate dress and it was so difficult that you vowed never to do it again?

Are you already making competition dresses for yourself and want the skills and confidence to sew for others at your local studio or rink?

Do you get tired of wearing the same dress over and over, but don't want to spend $1,000 - $10,000 on a new or custom-made costume?

Are you already an accomplished seamstress who wants professional training to hone your skills to improve client satisfaction while increasing your efficiency and profits?

learn to take proper measurements and make a custom pattern for competition Ballroom, Latin, Country and skate dresses

If you answered YES to any of these questions,
my Sew Like A Pro™ training programs will revolutionize your dressmaking experience.

How do I know?

I created the school to teach you everything I wish I had known back in 1989 when I made my first competition ballroom dresses!

Don't worry. I’ve got your back... And your side, your sleeve, your skirt 😉  
You can SEW do this.

What is the difference between
Dancesport, Country and Skate dresses?

Every woman has arms, legs and body curves.
Every woman moves, bends, stretches, spins, and jumps.
Every woman's dress must stay in place and look good on her.

So what is the difference between the dress styles?

Ruffles are fabulous on all dress styles. (Even ballgown skirts have ruffles.)

All dress styles use skirt yokes.

Both dancers and skaters love wearing mesh!

After looking at the images above, can you tell me what the differences are?

Every design is unique as it should be. Yes, there are subtle differences between the dress styles that allow it to adapt to its own style of dance or skate.

However, all of these dresses are made using 70% - 90% of the same construction principles. You will learn those principles in these Sew Like A Pro™ courses. You will learn everything you need to know to create competition-quality dresses like the ones you see above.

 

Whether you decide to enroll or not, I ask that you please let all types of competition dresses be your inspiration. Do not label dresses as "dance" or "skate" to the extent it hinders your ability to see the potential of every design. Keep an open mind, you will be a better designer and dressmaker if you do.

Look and feel fabulous in your Dancesport, Country or Skate dresses.

What should I know about the Sew Like A Pro™ courses?

Which sewing programs are available? +

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? +

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.

 



What is the detailed curriculum taught in each weekly module? +

Scroll the remainder of this sub-page for all the written details in each module.

Truthfully, not all the training is included here.  It wouldn't all fit on each page ... and I keep adding training videos or imagers to the membership site!  Oh, I didn't say free upgrades are included?  They are.
