About

Eastside, Westside, all around the Town

After a career as a professional runner, I began coaching high school athletes. When the small, rural town I lived in needed a gymnastics coach, I became certified to coach that sport at age 40 and started level 5 and 6 teams. My kids were not able to buy expensive, commercially made leotards, so I started to sew velvet leotards for my students and team.

When I moved to New York City from the Oregon coast, I got rid of most of the contents of my sewing and craft room, anticipating life in a small apartment with no room or time to sew.

I found a full time job teaching gymnastics in the city and also began working as a private running coach https://www.coachup.com/coaches/heathert .
The mom of one of my little gymnasts wanted a purple velvet leotard for her daughter's birthday and I told her I could make her one. She told me about Etsy and suggested I go into business.

I bought a new machine and unpacked the one box of supplies I had moved across the country with me when I left everything to be with the love of my life, composer Martin Bayless ( martinbayless.com ), who was my high school sweetheart.
In 2014, we will celebrate our 40th anniversary of true love.

I discovered the resources of the famed garment district and was inspired by the color palettes and style trends in midtown Manhattan. My design icons are Coco Chanel, Calvin Klein and Jason Wu, with their clean, sleek lines and refined whimsey. I love working with velvet and jewel tone colors, with just a touch of glitz!

Life is about taking chances and following your dreams, working hard and taking chances. Inspiration is everywhere. Just look up at the lights on the 59th street bridge and spin some dreams!

I currently accept PayPal for all transactions and take credit cards through etsy's direct checkout.
Shipping
Most orders will be shipped USPS within 5 business days of your payment. Larger or custom orders may require more production time. In stock stock special sale items are shipped within 3 days. Please let me know if you require expedited shipping.
Most items ship USPS Priority mail in the US and Parcel post to Canada. I use eco friendly, recycled packaging material whenever possible to help protect our environment for our kids.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do accept returns within 2 weeks if an item is the wrong size. Children's body lengths differ and will affect the fit of your leotard. To insure proper fit, send me a girth measurement (top of shoulder, around crotch and back up to shoulder).
Leotards should be tried on with undergarments. I can not accept returns of items that have been worn, used or soiled.
If you need to exchange for a different item, on receipt of the original purchase, I can ship a different size if the style/color is in stock. If it is not in stock, I can provide a similar option for exchange. Refunds of purchase price of a returned item ( minus shipping) will be given if the item is returned in new , unused condition within 2 weeks.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need something special, feel free to ask about custom orders. Please allow up to a week extra production time most of the year and up to two weeks during the busy Fall/Winter Holiday season (from Halloween through New Years) and during the late spring dance recital season.
