Announcement    We are now booked for custom orders several weeks out!! If you have a special order you would like before then, please feel free to contact me and I may be able to work your dress, pants or shirt in between other orders.

Each unique figure skating dress, pants, or shirt is hand-made at JES Ice Designs, a SacksNBrand Ice Designs LLC partner. Each one-of-a-kind competition or practice skating dress is sewn from stretch fabric or stretch velvet!

Some items may be similar or use the same fabrics, but like snowflakes, no two will be ever exactly alike! However if you LOVE a dress or shirt, but need it in a different size, we are happy to create something similar for you in YOUR size…

Also if you are looking for boys figure skating pants (elastic waist, heavy stretch fabric, no boot strap at bottom of legs), in a size or color not shown, please message me! I have heavier weight 4 way stretch nylon spandex in red, white, black, dark brown, buckskin and royal blue in stock and ready to sew!! The pants can be ready to ship to you and your skater in just a few days!! I’m planning to start a higher line of pants with boot straps and a higher level of shirts with the attached underpants section soon!

If you are looking for my hand knits, they moved to their own shop at the end of August! CookieKnitsStudio! Check it out!

We use only the finest fabrics and Swarovski ® crystals. All seams are double stitched when possible. Bodices are completely lined in larger sizes and at least front lined in smaller sizes for added comfort in almost every dress. All dresses are BRAND NEW unless otherwise noted and made completely in the USA (almost always in my new studio in Glen Allen VA, to be exact!) We trade as a Sacks N Brand Ice Designs partner.

If you see a dress you like but it's not your size, please contact me! I may be able to make something similar! PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL CUSTOM ORDERS TAKE AT LEAST 8 WEEKS TO COMPLETE, MAYBE LONGER, SO PLEASE PLAN YOUR ORDER ACCORDINGLY!! The only exception to this guideline is the standard scoop necked dresses or the standard key hole back dresses listed as a partial custom order.

And although we only routinely ship to the USA and Canada for most items, we may ship to other countries as well if the shipping is not prohibitively expensive. Please contact me if you find an item you are interested in and we can check out the shipping costs! Any additional charges for shipping overseas or to Canada, including VAT or duty/customs charges, are the buyer's responsibility, not our shop's responsibility, so please take those surcharges into consideration when ordering.

Thanks again for visiting my shop!

About JESIceDesigns

On Etsy since 2013

Sewing changes from a hobby to a necessity to a business

I started sewing skating dresses over 20 years ago, when it was difficult to keep 3 skaters (one boy and 2 girls) in skates, lessons and competition wear. It was also difficult to find reasonably priced but well-made competition skate wear at that time, and since I have been sewing since middle school when my mom and aunt taught me, I thought that sewing the costumes might be a way to save a little bit on the cost of skating.

Soon word got around the rink that I sewed skating dresses and JES Ice Designs grew from there. I have shipped dresses as far away as the UK (a Dorothy dress that was absolutely adorable!) and Denmark (a beautiful lyrical dress). I have also had dresses that “competed” in several recent synchronized skating sectionals; the 2011 International Children’s Winter Games; the 2008, 2009, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 intercollegiate national championships; the 2014 and 2015 Lake Placid Ice Dance Championships; the 2014 National Solo Ice Dance Championships; and the 2015 and 2016 US Figure Skating National Championships!

Several years ago, another skating mom who was also sewing dresses and myself joined forces to outfit the local synchronized skating team with reasonably priced dresses, since the team was just starting out. We found that our strengths and talents complemented each other nicely. So we continued to collaborate on different projects informally. Soon a burst of orders made us to decide to form a partnership, Sacks N Brand Ice Designs LLC! (Please visit our website at www.sacksnbrand.com and our Facebook page Sacks N Brand Ice Designs.) But all of our dresses are still made by Laurie and myself.

I have a great husband, who has been known to make last minute runs to the local sewing store for me, and 3 awesome now grown children. They are my inspiration! As much as I love piecing colors and patterns together, they are my constant assistants and critics!

    I am a part-time working mom in Glen Allen VA. With 3 skaters at one point in time, I started sewing their costumes to save a little bit of cash. Word spread and business grew. All dresses are still made in my sewing studio though!
