Fabulous Fitting Workshop Feb 4-5,2023, women's dance skate dress, header V2

Register today to join the Sew Like A Pro™ two day fitting workshop!

What are the goals of this fitting workshop?

1) Help women dancers and skaters learn to fit and alter their existing costumes so they fit and feel better.  

2) Offer techniques to help participants who make their own costumes learn to adjust the usual store-bought leotard and sleeve patterns so they can have better fitting, more flattering performance dresses.

This two day workshop is ideal for blossoming teenagers and adult women who dance or skate:

  • Figure skaters and ice dancers,
  • Artistic roller skaters,
  • Ballroom dancers and Dancesport competitors,
  • Country, Swing and line dancers,
  • Argentine Tango, Salsa and other types of solo or partner dance.
  • Even lyrical, jazz and contemporary are perfectly suited to this workshop.
  • Of course, if you are a man who sews these types of women's costumes, you can absolutely join!

Do you know how to sew, ?

Logically, the step after fitting a dance or skate leotard and sleeves is sewing, right? 

Therefore, it makes sense that you should have at least minimal sewing skills so you can follow through with the suggested alterations to your own dance or skate costume.  However, if you really don't know how to sew, you can still sign up.

Do you want the skills to fit and alter your costumes so they look better?

Yes, I want to register for the fitting workshop!

, thanks SEW much for your interest in this 2-Day Fabulous Female Fitting workshop!

I began my own ballroom and skate dressmaking company in 1992.  For decades I struggled with my perfectionist tendencies that demanded I create the best fitting dresses possible.  And I did.  Fitting women's curves was, and still is, my specialty.

In 2014, I was blessed with the idea of beginning an online sewing school specifically for those who want to make women's costumes for ballroom and country dance, ice and artistic roller skating.  It is called Sew Like A Pro™. 

My school is the only comprehensive, interactive, personalized sewing school for dancers and skaters in the entire world.  If you wish to learn more about it, click here

Wow, has the school grown over the years!  I continue adding training to the school because there is SEW much I want to share with theSew Like A Pro™ members. 

Plus, I also teach free training open to the public, and a variety of tuition-based programs to suit your sewing needs.  This workshop is one of the many free classes I offer.  I hope you sign up, .  You will be glad you did.  It's fun, free and highly informative!  How can you go wrong investing a few hours of your time in that? 

I look forward to seeing you in our Fabulous Fitting Facebook group!

Yours in dance, skate and sewing,

Teresa Sigmon
