‘Early Bird’ Discounts have officially started! We are calling all thrifty, plan-ahead coaches to take a look at our annual end-of-our-season special discounting. NOW is the time to design and order next season's team costumes from Satin Stitches (and take advantage of our fantastic discounts).
While you finish up your 2017-2018 season, you can start looking to the future by working with our design team to create new costuming for your 2018-2019 season. SAVE some serious cash! As the old saying goes: get more bang for your buck…
We have scheduled our first photo shoot of the year. (The above photo is from our last year’s photo shoot.) We are excited to again work with Satin Stitches’ friend, Kerry Riley from Needle and Black on this shoot. Follow Satin Stitches on social media to see what all the fuss is about! We have been designing NEW styles for our Web Store. We will have these new styles added to our customizable Audition and Pro Apparel very soon. And if you need last minute pre-designed, customizable team costuming be sure and shop our Dance & Cheer Practice Wear.
It’s also worth a mention of our Promotional $5 towards any dance costume order, when you purchase a pair of Pastry Dance Sneakers through our Web Store.
Do you need LAST MINUTE sizing alterations for any of your costumes?
Work with a seasoned, professional alteration person or company (such as Satin Stitches), who should know what is possible or not.
Here are a few general guidelines:
Extensions can be added to the crotch of a leotard to extend for a longer girth. (More can be added if you are adding a skirt, pant or short over your leotard).
An added section of fabric can be added below the waist area of a biketard, if the biketard is worn with a skirt over it.
Decorative belt-style bands can be added to lengthen the torso of everyone’s unitard, leotard or biketard.
If design features aren't in the way, side seams can be taken in. The center back on a costume may also be taken in.
If matching fabric is available - a gusset (an added piece) can be seamed into the side seams or center back of a garment to extend the width.
Collars can be extended. Pant legs and sleeves can sometimes be extended. Both can be shortened or taken in.
Bodices can be nipped in to create a more contoured shape.
There are many creative options that COULD be used if you have a little imagination and sewing expertise!
