Following Passion

My daughter started competitive figure skating. I put my fashion design degree to work, designing and creating her figure skating dresses. Requests come in from admirers, and for 5 years I work my corporate job and design and create figure skating dresses during the weekends and evenings, and on holidays. Then one spring, I have so many dress requests that... I take the plunge, and Sk8 Gr8 Designs is officially started, full time, in August 2013.

I truly love what I do. I love figure skating, especially when the new programs and dresses are unveiled. I understand the USFSA and ISI costume guidelines, and create dresses at every skating level, from beginners to competitive skaters going to regionals and sectionals . I offer my clients individual attention, reliability, quality, honesty, a good value and a fit that won't be outgrown too soon.

What should you know about Competitive Figure Skating Dresses if you're a new skating parent?

Competitive figure skating dresses fit snugly, allowing the judges to see the beautiful lines of the figure skater. Skirts should also compliment the young skater by not being too long or full, and set low on the bodice. Swarovski rhinestones offer the gorgeous shimmering flashbulb “pop” that can be seen from the stands. Sequins and others beads look good close up, but often are lost when the skater is on the ice.

Sk8 Gr8 Designs dresses are fully lined front and back, and the high quality lining fabric smooths the body and provides warmth. The fit was developed over years of making competitive dresses. The dresses are made with high quality fabrics, Swarovski rhinestones in size 20ss (unless noted otherwise). All fabric edges are finished, stress points are reinforced (they are athletes!). I offer many size variations for great fit for the young skater.

Thank you for reading my story!
