Ready Made Figure Skating Dresses

Ready Made Figure Skating Dresses
Having spent over ten years training in this sport, the dresses played a large role  
Back In the 1970's I have to say I don't ever recall shopping for figure skating dresses; I was fortunate to have a Mom who could sew dresses for me. What I enjoyed most was being able to design my own dress styles, then mom would simply create a pattern based on that design. Thanks to Mom, I sure had some gorgeous dresses.
Nowadays, many moms are much too busy to sew their daughter's figure skating dresses so they'll either have them made by a seamstress or purchase them from a local figure skating store, other skaters, or online.
It's actually quite affordable to select a figure skating dress from Amazon. If you have to take it to a seamstress for adjustments, you can still do that. However, if the skater has a fairly typical body frame, the likelihood is the dress will fit just fine.
You'll notice the online selection is quite vast and most dresses come in alternate color choices as well as various size options.
HOW ABOUT THE FIGURE SKATING SKIRT?
Have you ever felt that you invented a new idea..lol -  I remember in the 1970's arriving at my Figure Skating Club wearing the first ever Figure Skating Skirt. I do mean 'the first'. Since I had always worn a different style top over my dresses during practice, just the skirt would be seen. So one day I asked mom, 'let's not sew a full dress, let's just do the skirt portion - we'll cut it off at the waist'. That way I can wear any top I want with it during practice, changing it daily as I always did.
Figure Skating Skirts
So there I was showing off what I believed was my invention in our skating club...after that, other club members started having them made! Of course, today they're quite common. I often wonder, did I invent this idea?
Of course you can easily find Figure Skating Skirts at Amazon as well. I've featured one here.
So go ahead and research those pre-made dresses before you decide to go to the expense of having them made! But for competition, we always love custom-made dresses don't we!
