So what to do…

SM 800 shutterstock_64972783So what to do? How can you avoid last minute worries and excessive expenditure for new costumes and a better fitting new pair of dance shoes?

As a professional in the dance apparel industry, I can tell you that dance costumes fabrics are one of the hardest pieces of clothing to sew because the fabric stretches.

So in order to avoid dealing with the headache of fixing garments made of stretch materials, sequins, glitter and tulle – I strongly suggest that you spend some time studying the measurement chart closely for the company you are ordering from. These guidelines need be followed and measurements taken correctly.

I know! You have already done that and still got your daughter’s costume and it is too big!  Well, something tells me that you didn’t take the measurements the right way.

It is important to understand where to locate four main areas in the body when measuring for a costume – bust, waist, hips and girth (the circumference of the body).
