I'm in the process of having all my ones for this year made so have only got photos of Worlds last year...

Dance: I started breathing in the feathers on my shoulder about half-way through Starlight Waltz... sure as hell didn't help with my breathing problems...



OD: For Cha Cha... didn't manage to get many good photos of this one... Nice & Bright eh!





Finally Freedance: Not really relevant to the freedance but it's hard to come up with an outfit for Tango, Blues & Jive...







There's a couple of mine!... Or alot of mine... either way x

Jayson good job, no more makeup though or masks with the new rules. you sew quite well. you probably picked up a few hints from Petra as she does quite a few also.

No idea how to make them unfortunately... would love to though... my partner's mum makes them. I decorate them myself though... alongside with my partner's aunt... Would love to do more on them but don't want to seem like I don't want his aunt's input on them?

We got caught out on that mask thing... face painted one on Nick for when we done phantom of the opera and it was only about a month after that they banned it lol... his was quite scary looking though tbh... x

hey nothing wrong with a little freestyling on sewing lol. yes April another great figure and singles skater.....funniest thing i ever saw was one year at nationals i think she got the silver in freestyle, she went to get her medal and hit the toe stop or something and literally flew through the air a couple of feet, got on and cursied (spelling),,,,,,smiled,,,,was so funny after such a great program.

Hey I'm impressed! Now I want a sewing machine again, lol. All I have left really are my outfits I made for my teddy bears.

But when you cut, besides the half extra inch for seams, how much do you add to the measurements for the top part? I'm kinda unorthodoxed myself. Got a few patterns, then cut and sew to fit, lol.

I've NEVER used a pattern in my life for skating outfits, and it wasnt until I had to grade sizes that I used patterns for more conventional garments... however, for me it was always just pick up the scissors and cut.. and I cut way smaller than the size in lycra.. never to fit.. coz its always going to be too BIG! Mums always wanted the pattern for my skating pants, b/c the crotch never sagged.. had to break their heart and tell them there wasnt one! I have industrial sewing machines/overlocker so there was never any waste, and on an industrial overlocker - them teeth bite at 3,000 stitches a minute!!!

Basically, I learned by making outfits for all my teddy bears and dogs first, lol. Yes, they hated me when I did this. But it was just cut and fit. They had this contest though for halloween and my doggies won!

But man, I want a sewing machine now. I would like to make some jazz type of pants and find 1/8th to 1/4th inch hexpad foam for certain areas if I wish, just to practice in, lol. Or maybe just get some thick leather for certain parts so my pants dont end up wholy.

thats cute!! honestly, kids little costumes are timeless.. because basically a practise leo is a leo.. they all look much the same.. the trick is coming up with something amazing for the comps to blow em away! even for kids!!

more so now tho, especially at our rink... you see all the young girls wearing flat wrap mini skirt style, or less frills at least... or 'dress style' leos.. not too many with the full circle cut skirts..

All the kids at our rink just love those flat wrap types with the deep points in the front and back...the triangle skirt I think...I just can't fall in love with those. The coach asked me to skate around the floor with a cut out skirt so they could see how it looked and I couldn't get over the tails flapping between my leg thing. Deep Sigh....I love the old full circle skirts, I sure wish I could bring them back into vogue, lol.

I just ordered up a bunch of swarosvki crystals for a dress I plan to make my daughter, wohoo I don't think those have gone out of style I can't wait till they arrive so I can get started.

I think I like that better...but after three kids...the bare belly isn't going to fly, roflol. No way I'm going to sport my muffin top but the skirt I like.

lol.. just modify the length of the top to hit just below the top of the skirt (like a long tankini) and you are set

A tankini is a 2 piece bathing suit! They are very similar to the suits the girls have on in your picture. Some have shorter "tank tops" and some have longer "tank tops" hence the name tankini (tank/bikini)
