Dress & Skirt Patterns

Next to the tutu, beautiful flowing dance dreses are the most sought-after designs for ballet.

These beautiful patterns are designed for fit, comfort, flow, and, of course, flattery!

They're all here - empire, hip-cut, full-circle, half-circle, Spanish, Arabian, Nutcracker - for dance roles from ballet to modern to jazz.

Perfect for 'classic' roles, and as the starting point for your own wildest creations.

Developed over many years of tutu and dance-dress design and construction, these are the same patterns Ms. Folts uses everyday in her own custom designs.

Please Note: Our costuming books and costume patterns assume an intermediate or advanced level of sewing skills. Our instructions do not cover or teach basic sewing techniques or skills.


All Book and Pattern sales are final - no returns, no exceptions.
