Subject: Design Recommendations for a very T H I N dancer

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: Sunday, September 23, 03:28:30am

I am about to start a dress for a very small - pencil thin - dancer under 11. Dancer and mom are great, giving full creativity to me. They only have one request. Whatever I put on the bodice, they don't want it to make her look thin. I have a few ideas, but thought I'd ask here to see what advice you might have. Thanks very much!

Horizontal lines in the bodice come to mind. Anything that will make her look wider. (NT)-Sunday, September 23, 03:57:41am

I second the horizontal line comment. Light color base, add color in the appliqué, embroidery. Maybe a big design in the center that goes around the middle..like the Celtic star dresses. (NT)Good luckSunday, September 23, 07:19:26am

You could also use a pattern the starts in the center of the bodice and fans out - like a sun burst or that same idea of something fanning out like sun rays. Would "expand" the dancer. (NT)momThursday, September 27, 08:35:16am

Second the light colour for the bodice. Also shiny satin fabric can make the wearer look bigger than a matt fabric. The fullness of the skirt should also be considered as a wide wide skirt makes the wearer look thinner. (NT)RWednesday, October 17, 07:41:50am
