Subject: Since the TC is at the meeting, I would say, "I'm happy to make the dress the length you instruct me, but I just want you both to understand that if it is that short, there is a good chance it will be too short in 2-3 months and you may need a new dress." Then let the TC and the parent talk it out.

In reply to: Any advice please 's message, "Hi. I make solos for a local school. The teacher always visits with the dancer/parent for the initial meeting. She is requesting the skirts to be shorter and shorter, I know when making the dresses they will fit for 2/3 months... but it's not her that ends up with an unwearable dress after 3 outings.." on Wednesday, June 14, 09:40:46am

If the dress will be alterable, you can give them a price for how much that might cost. That way when the parent comes back to you in 3 months needing it altered, they will already know. I would be willing to bet that the next dress they need they will listen to your advice and not the TC.

Just wondering what the best/most popular stiffening is used for the skirts in dresses, and where do you prefer to buy it from? Thanks! :) (NT)New DMMonday, August 14, 03:51:38pm
