Nifty Duds Design
Custom Costume Designs
for Dance and Skating
Over the past 12 years, from my home, I have designed and sewed over 1000 dance and skating costumes, custom fitted to each dancer. Working closely with the instructor and the dancer, I try to incorporate the feel of the music with the design and fabric, as well as taking into account the physical body type of the dancer.
Fabrics are chosen based on their quality, durability, appearance, stage appearance, comfort and stretch (stretch fabric must be 4-way). Patterns are made on an individual basis for each person for that custom fit that doesn't come from "off the shelf" products. Pricing is based on fabric choices + time required to construct, minimum of $70 plus cost of fabric. Some samples of costumes that I've done are in the photo gallery.
Other items that are available in regular sizes are basic jazz pants from $30, ballet body suits from $25, fleece skating jackets from $30. I will custom fit for an additional $5.
