It may be summer on the calendar, but fall and winter (competition season) is in the air! Can you feel the design energy? “Everyone” has hopped on the bandwagon for working on designs for the upcoming competition and performance seasons. Our magic sketching wand is working overtime, so be patient with your requests, as this is the busiest DESIGN time of our year!
See Deborah and the Satin Stitches' booth at these upcoming events:
August 13: Colorado Spirit Coaches Association Coaches & Athletes Conference
September 17: Dance & Drill Coaches Association of Oregon Fall Conference
October 8: Washington State Dance/Drill Coaches Association Fall Conference
At Satin Stitches, our Design Team is here to help you fulfill your custom performance costuming hopes and desires! Download our generic sketch sheet or create your own. But get started right away so you can pick your desired delivery schedule. Choirs: keep in mind that your delivery schedule has a longer turnaround time. Don’t wait until it is too late!
If you can’t visualize what you think you want for your team or choir, check out our Web Store with customizable costumes. You can see the design, and if you can’t ‘see’ the design with YOUR colors – order a sketch WITH your colors! It’s a $5 fee which is then credited to your order, when you place it, so it is a win-win option! As soon as you pick a style, let us know and we will ‘pop’ in your colors. And if you wish some expertise on your options, our expertise is always free. Just send us an email or give us a call during our office hours.
After you have brainstormed what you would like your new team outfits to look like (including your thoughts on theme, silhouette, fabric and trim choices), call to book your design appointment if you are within driving distance of our shop (it is well worth your travel time to see our shop and interact with our designers), or request a custom sketch for your team. Make sure that you leave yourself enough time to consider your new designs and to complete your ordering process. Add time AHEAD of our deadlines for Guaranteed Delivery. Concert/Solo/Show Choirs, leave extra delivery time.
7 Reasons Why Costumes That Fit Well, Last Longer. If your costume fits:
You don’t have to safety-pin it – pins can cause holes
It won’t overstretch and break any seams
You won’t stress the fabric and cause ripping of the fabric itself
Elastic won’t overstretch and give out
Buttons and other closures won’t pop off, sometimes causing tears
Wear-lines won’t be created on hems, where they are turned up to a shorter length
Parts of your costume won’t catch on things because they are so baggy, causing tearing
At Satin Stitches, we offer 6 different width sizes in our standard women’s sizes (more than other companies), and then 3 different length sizes, for a total of 18 sizes from XS to XL.
Additional, we have Extended Sizes and Child Sizes, so your entire team can get a FABULOUS FIT. And our concert and show choir dresses are available in our dress sizes 0 to 26, also, all in Short, Medium and Long lengths.
Men’s sizes also incorporate our extensive sizing options with a full range of 34 to 52.
