Satin Stitches® has costumed solo studio and ballroom dancers for decades.
Because Satin Stitches® has been working with dancers of all ages, sizes, and shapes for over 40 years, we understand the wants and needs of these dance artists. Creating figure-flattering solo dance costumes and custom ballroom dresses for dancers without perfect bodies can be elusive and challenging for even the experienced costume maker.
Deborah, and her talented staff have dedicated themselves to creating custom performance costumes that flatter EVERY body shape. Deborah's aesthetic skills were honed with extensive fitting experience before, during, and after completing her BFA degree (Fashion Design Major) - years before starting Satin Stitches®. And then by working with thousands of solo performers and groups at Satin Stitches®. Deborah has written many published articles over the years, which educate others on the "tricks of the trade" for emphasizing the positives and minimizing the negatives, for every possible figure type.
When designing for groups (so that everyone appears proportionately identical) and for solo performers, Deborah presents all design options regarding creating the most flattering costume. Besides the obvious - exact necklines, waistlines, colors, silhouettes and so on - fabrics and any decorative details can influence how flattering a design really is. This is professional "couture" costuming by Satin Stitches®.
We are also happy to re-design and alter your favorite or newly purchased costumes. Additionally, we re-design and alter all men’s dance apparel.
If you are looking for something comfortable that functions like your costumes, we have practice wear available in our Web Store.
You too, can have a custom designed and fitted Satin Stitches® one-of-a-kind costume, which is truly Designed for a Sensational Performance!
