Czech National Dance Costume by Dance Festival Costumes

Introducing another example of our work ,elements of a Czech national costume, our client (a dance teacher) had the skirt but needed the petticoat, blouse and waistcoat for a Czech national solo .  Using the “bible” on national costumes we came up with this design, a blouse with a big frill around the neck and puff sleeves with frill and lace detail around the edge.  The bodice is in black and laces up the front and was made using an authentic folk costume pattern, it is boned at the front edges which gives a lovely crisp look.  The petticoat was made to give both the correct shape under the skirt but also to look lovely when the skirt moved during the dance , showing lots of frill.  Our client was thrilled with her costume, saying:

“The costume was super! Perfect for her national and fitted like a glove. It has been made beautifully and I am very happy with all aspects of the service I received from you. Thank you for being able to do it in the timeframe and packaging it so professionally. First class service and wouldn’t hesitate to come back to you again.”

If you would like a costume custom made for a dance festival, whether it is for a national solo or anything else, we may be able to help, we can make the whole costume or just parts of it.  These do take time and research and often lots of different fabrics and trimmings to get them just right, contact us if you would like a quote but please bear in mind that it is unlikely that we could make a whole national costume for less than £150, group enquiries welcome and obviously can offer substantial discounts for these but given amount of work involved advise that you start thinking 10-12 weeks ahead for these.
