How to sew a praise dance dress

Praise Dance Wear

Unlike many other forms of dancing outfits, praise dance wear has to be modest and not draw attention to the body. The dresses of the women are normally long and flowing as it allows them to move better. For men, the pants are not close fitting and shirts are normally loose and worn outside the pants so as to make movement easier while providing a modicum of modesty.

By whatever name you call then, praise wear or worship dance outfits, they  all serve the same purpose – to help deliver the message of the Bible using dance as the medium.

Choosing the Types of Outfits

While dresses are the most common pieces for women, other garments include skirts suits, palazzo pants, tights, and scarves and yes, the right type of shoes if they are not dancing barefoot.

For Hip Hop praise dancers the outfits of choice for both men and women are generally pants and tunics. Many also include ties and caps to complete the look. Material that drapes over the body and has fluidity when the dancer is moving is good for some liturgical dances as they help to add a touch of beauty to the movements.

As with any other type of garment selection, it is also important to choose those that suit the body size of each dancer. Even if modesty is most important, the garments should be neat and attractive. To put dancers in gaudy or ill-fitting outfits will only serve to detract from the performance.
Since the garments have to be modest, it is important to follow certain standards, such as:

  • Sleeves: As a general rule, sleeves should be elbow length or longer so as to keep the arms covered.
  • Necklines: Since any showing of cleavage is too sexual, garments for liturgical or worship dancing should keep the chest area properly covered. Many designers of these kinds of dancewear pay special attention to keeping this area of the female body concealed.
  • Pantaloons, palazzos and culottes: Dancers normally wear these under dresses if they consider leotards and tights too close fitting or revealing.

For dances that require lots of jumping and leaping, palazzo pants and culottes are best as they enable the dancer to maintain their modesty while remaining flexible and free in their movements. They are also safer as long flowing dresses can become trip hazards when a lot of leaping is necessary during a particular routine.

Ultimately, when choosing your outfit you need to choose pieces that will serve the purpose, that is look divine. The right style and colors are important when choosing the outfits for the dance routines for different ceremonies and biblical stories.

Where to find Praise Dance Wear

Finding pieces for individuals and groups is no longer a difficult task. Many establishments actually cater only to people needing worship costumes and other types of clothing stores also carry gear for the church set. It is possible to find the right garments at online sellers or from off the rack in many stores. Some dancers, depending on their needs will even have their praise dance wear custom made.

How Much Do They Cost?

As with any other type of garment cost will vary depending on the type of material and where you buy your outfit. You can expect to pay anywhere from $20.00 up to a $100.00 or more for a dress. With accessories such as belts and scarves an outfit can cost pretty close to $200.00 for a woman.

Dance praise wear can be colorful depending on the season or type of ceremony as those that require solemnity will be mostly white, black or purple. Ultimately, the outfit should not take attention away from the purpose of the dance, ministering about the Gospel of God.

How to sew a children's ballroom dance dress

Dear Osinka!
My 8-year-old daughter is engaged in sports ballroom dancing, I need a dress to perform at the competition, but it is very expensive to order to sew it. I want to sew myself, but I don’t know how to build a pattern, please help!

Ermak, first of all, ask the head of the studio where your daughter works out the requirements for competitive dresses, they are very strict. You did not write what class she dances in, judging by her age, she is a beginner. When I was doing ballroom dancing myself, for juniors it was required that the dress be solid, not flesh-colored, no neckline, no sequins, no tutu, long sleeves, i.e. very simple cut. Usually everyone sews themselves according to the pattern of the most ordinary dress with a tight-fitting top and a sun skirt. The fabric is stretchy so it doesn't restrict movement. Stretch velvet looks very impressive. When the class of dancers increases, the requirements for dresses change, the higher the class, the more liberties and bells and whistles.
Good luck with your sewing and your daughter with dancing!

Just yesterday I built a pattern from Season
for a 9-year-old girl. Constant values ​​(constants) were recalculated in proportion to measurements. I finished building the swimsuit myself - the "seat height" plus 7-8 cm for a height of 140 (laid 10 - it turned out to be a lot ...) I cut out the layout (an old T-shirt). I wanted to slightly pick up the shoulder (by 0.5-0.7 cm), well, I drew a "line of panties" on the child.
The sleeve fits pretty well, everything else too.
Well, the skirt - one or two "suns", some make 2-3-4 layers of chiffon, some - an underskirt, for example, from organza in 2 suns, with or without a fishing line along the edge ... from the waist or from the line hips, who likes it better and goes ...
Many photos with "styles" rating on http://www.photodance. ru/
but for some reason it has not been opened for three days already ...
Easy parquet!

Many thanks to everyone who responded, all your advice helped me a lot.

please help in this matter! children from 8 to 13. girls. any answer revealing ball gown tailoring would be very helpful as i have no idea about it

It is sewn like a regular straight-cut dress. Flared underneath.
It is desirable to use stretchy fabrics.

girivenko natalya, recently there was such a topic, look at the link:

thanks html found a bodysuit pattern BUT for adults! for some reason I think that some coefficients are not suitable for children and I heard that the sleeves should be cut differently for dancing. arms are constantly raised, it seems that the shoulders do not rise, it is necessary to cut the sleeve with a simple cylinder, but I love everything according to the rules, exact coefficients and patterns, help! you can take a bodysuit from here

here's another link for you - there are interesting styles.
a lot of useful things - how to take measurements, rules for costumes, etc., etc.

and here is another

Try to recalculate the "adult" coefficients proportionally -
for example, if there is a factor of 3 for the measure (abstract) of 21 cm, then for your measure of 12. 5 cm the coefficient will be 12.5*3/21=1.78 (round up. ..)
I got it...
As an option (out of hopelessness) - buy a ready-made gymnastic leotard and chop off a pattern...

thank you so much, that's what I wanted to know!!!

and you have not tried not to build a pattern yourself, but to remove it from some bodysuit that fits well. I do like this. I have problems with the construction - no matter how I build it, I’ll throw it away (along with the spent fabric), but recently I took a pattern from my bodysuit, sits - exactly the same.
Well, flare from the hips. By the way, all ball gowns are sewn on the basis of the bodysuit. This is when you pull your hands up so that the dress does not crawl along with them. the dress is sewn to the body along the vertical seams (therefore it is desirable that they match). It is best to sew a bodysuit from a mesh, but of course, you can just buy a ready-made one and use it, and cut off everything that is superfluous.
look at the forum in Costume Design and Needlework there were already several threads on ball gowns.

Dancing, love, politics | severnoe-siyanie

If we omit the profanity, then Danila's father stood with his mouth wide open, powerfully blowing air. Translated into literary language, his speech would sound something like this: “My dear son, I fed you, watered you, gave you an education, attached me to the position of deputy, now I have knocked out for you your own, the only, beloved position of mayor. Yes, the town is small, but you have to start somewhere, then you will reach the governor. What are you, my blood, so disgraced your own father, where did you meet this long-legged beauty, who, drunk almost in a negligee, dances at the bar, uploads a cursed photo on the Internet and now all the media write about it. And what a horror, this information reached big, big people. I put in so much effort, and now everything can fly tram-para-ram. Why are you putting the folder like that, son?
Danila is already thirty years old, but he was afraid of his father just as in childhood. He lowered his head and did not dare to raise his eyes, he himself understood that he was to blame. Who knew that this fool would do such a thing? Of course, the girl wanted to show off, throw dust in the eyes of her girlfriends at a bachelorette party, drank a little - who doesn’t happen to. But she is the bride of the future mayor, she should at least think a little with her head, however, what is there to think - she is a blonde! And now the country has taken a course on morality, big people do not forgive such mistakes. Everyone has girls with low social responsibility, but they should not be known about and it is forbidden to take them as wives.

The father came out of the waiting room of his deputy son, slamming the door loudly. Danil shuddered, tiptoed over to the window to watch his father leave in an armored jeep. He quickly put the phone in his pocket and also headed for the exit, already imagining how he would fall apart on the couch at home and drink whiskey with ice, but at that time the secretary Lenochka knocked on the door.

- Danil Anatolyevich, there is this one again, well, how is she there, with her dances, she keeps walking and walking, she has been sitting for two hours, I tell her, you are busy, but she does not leave, - Lenochka spoke confusedly, often not coordinating the words in offer.

Like everyone else, she was placed by acquaintance. Danil didn’t even remember whose daughter, wife or bride she was, but she was definitely someone: there are no strangers in the government.

- Damn her! Let him come in, - Danil again sat down at the table and took out the phone.
Anastasia entered modestly, sat on the edge of a chair, took out a folder, Danil did not look at the visitor, it was more interesting for him to look at the photos of his beloved on Instagram, however, most of them had already been deleted.
- Danil Anatolyevich, I sent you an official letter, but did not receive a response. Let me tell you how important it is to organize a festival of Russian folk dance. The future generation should know its culture and history. Dancing is the same cultural heritage as literature, painting…
- Nastya, are you? Danil looked up and saw his former classmate. He laughed, "What are you doing here?"
- Me? I came to the deputy for financial assistance in organizing the city festival of Russian folk dance "Dubravushka" among schoolchildren.
- You yourself are an oak forest, - he cackled, - How is life so young? Why so sad? Let's get up, we'll go, we'll have lunch, you'll tell me how you got to the oak forest with a law degree.
While they were driving to a restaurant, Danil Cherkasov recalled his student years with pleasure. He was a typical major, the son of a big official who did not need to think about anything - a red diploma was implied by itself. People like him are the main part of the faculty, but there were smart little provincials among them, they didn’t communicate much with them, if only to pay a pretty penny for an essay, otherwise it wasn’t their level. Nastya belonged to the poor students, but Danil then drew attention to her - her arched posture and the peculiar gait inherent in dancers distinguished her from the crowd. She has been dancing since childhood, having enrolled to study as a lawyer, began to earn extra money as a choreographer, and continued after graduation. Unlike Danila, she did not have a warm place, and she did not have a soul for jurisprudence.
- Danil, I'm very glad that we met! Please help organize the festival. Here I calculated how much we need to rent the hall, costumes, director and presenter. We have already agreed with the media on information support.
- Ha! Do you remember when you and I were in commercials? - Danil interrupted her, - Well, I was standing there in a business suit, and you were jumping in a fluttering dress. Wow, high! She stretched one leg so forward, and pressed the other, - He laughed again, - My father even kept a magazine somewhere. Need to find. I was still thin then, I was handsome.
- Yes, I remember. The photographer could not catch the frame, and then I landed unsuccessfully and twisted my ankle, you drove me home and tried to kiss me, - Nastya blushed.
- I still want to kiss you - he leaned over, but she dodged.
They had lunch, Danil took a folder with the concept of a children's dance competition from Nastya, casually threw it into the back seat. He was not going to do anything, although he promised to study everything carefully and help, but he was an ordinary deputy who was put in his place and told what to do - there were no instructions to help the girl Nastya arrange some kind of dance festivals.
Nastya called him on his mobile, wrote SMS, but he was always busy with business, traveling, etc. She is already used to the fact that people do not keep their promises, that in this life you can rely only on your own strength. She nevertheless arranged a festival of Russian folk dance, not as large as planned, but it turned out well. She herself acted as a choreographer, director, and presenter, took a small loan from a bank for gifts and diplomas to the winners, and agreed with a summer playground in a city park free of charge for being mentioned in the media. She invited important people, even printed expensive beautiful invitations, but they did not come. Danila, as a deputy, also called. He, like everyone else, assured of his presence and ignored.
He really had no time for this, all the time he was busy preparing for the election of the mayor of a small regional town beyond the Urals. His PR people worked hard to compose a decent biography and erased the obscene facts of real life. There were many trips and speeches to the electorate. All this exhausted him, and then his father decided to marry him to his friend's daughter.
The girl Lida was a typical well-groomed secular fool with a red diploma from a prestigious university. She even went with him to the city and immediately threw a tantrum. After Moscow, London and New York, she was offered to live in a city where there are only two hundred thousand people, and the main attraction is the smoking chimney of a metallurgical plant. There are no boutiques, no nightclubs, and there is practically no asphalt for her Bentley! In general, just as her father did not love Danila, Lida also had a father who also loved her, unable to bear the suffering of his daughter, he canceled the wedding and sent Lida to heal her nerves in Courchevel.
While Lidochka was conquering the snowy peaks, Nastya, who got into debt after the festival, thought about life and realized more and more that life does not think about her at all. Thirty-one years old, not married, no children, she has a favorite job, but there are no prospects, finances sing sad romances, and she herself wants to howl in pain and despair. She has so many ideas, a great desire to work, but no one needs her good impulses, and if at the age of twenty she still lived in dreams and believed how she would turn the world upside down, making Russia the most dancing country, having exchanged the fire of aspirations for the fourth decade, a series of failures extinguished. Nastya curled up on the bed in a rented apartment and quietly cried. Why is this world so unfair? Apparently, her best friend is right: in order to succeed, you must either be born into the family of a millionaire, or give birth to a millionaire. The first was not lucky initially, and the second also does not shine.
Anatoly Cherkasov, the owner of factories and steamboats, received a clear instruction: if you want to see your son as mayor and download natural resources from the region - marry offspring, because the people need to see the mayor as a family man. Danil was ready for any choice of his father, but then he remembered Nastya. This is the perfect wife! The quiet, downtrodden dance teacher.
Nastya understood the plight of her situation, besides, summer was coming - not the season for her dance school. It was already difficult to pay the rent, and then the debt from the festival “hung”. She, naive, thought that all respectable uncles and aunts from the ministries would come, see what a good deed she was doing and help her to do further. The phone vibrated and highlighted the subscriber: "Danil Cherkasov." Nastya answered the call with hope.
- How are you, beautiful? What's new? - Danil, as always, was cheerful and relaxed.
- Danil, hello! I am glad to hear that I have held a Russian dance festival and plan to do more. I have all the reports, we even made a video ourselves, - Nastya spoke hastily, she really wanted not to lose hope for help.
- Let me pick you up, tell me at dinner.
She was again with a folder of documents, again excitedly talking about her project, about its cultural and educational significance, but again he did not listen to her.
- Nastya, marry me, you will be the mayor's wife, - he laughed at the play on words, and she looked at him in confusion. Then Danil, with his characteristic cynicism, explained why he would marry her. Of course, he would never marry someone like her, not to his taste, but then you understand such things. That's so rude, not even trying to say romantic nonsense. She wanted to cry at the same time from resentment, to slap him with all her might, to throw hot tea in his face, to yell, but from childhood she learned to restrain emotions in public.
For a girl, the most important thing is to get married! With all the moral values, Nastya understood that she had nothing to repay the loan to the bank, that her dance school would never bring a normal income, and she was also unlikely to be able to see her students on the big stage. She agreed to Danil's proposal on one condition that this marriage would last no more than four years. The young people shook hands in a business-like manner and went home.
Danil gathered a council of PR people, they quickly came up with a romantic love story from their student years, found a ten-year-old advertising poster where they were with Nastya, made several photo shoots in the Love Story style and began to competently build an advertising campaign. The wedding was chic for a narrow circle of people, and for the people a modest report was made and a charity trip to the orphanage was made, supposedly on the day of the wedding, although it was three days later.
The small town impressed Nastya very much, however, not the town itself, but her new living conditions - a five-room apartment with expensive furnishings, a car with a driver, regular vacations abroad. It is not important WHERE you live, but HOW. She was quickly sewn business dresses and suits that looked perfect on her figure, and the choreographic posture immediately distinguished her from the crowd. She would easily overshadow Melania Trump, Carla Bruni and the Duchess of Cambridge combined, because in addition to the perfect figure, she also had a beautiful Slavic face and Russian soul.
They lived well, talked little, they had no sex. Or rather, she did not have, but he had, but not with her. Danila always liked colorful girls, with big breasts, so - oh, blood and milk. Tight, with a relief tummy and inflated dance legs, Nastya did not impress him, besides, she had the flat-chested ballerina.
Nastya was bored, she often let the driver go and went shopping herself, at first the inhabitants shunned her and whispered, then they began to deal with their problems, she listened to them and in the evenings cautiously, in a feminine way, inspired her husband. Nastya realized very quickly that Danila needed to create a positive image for career growth, appease her dad and big bosses from Moscow, and her inner urge demanded to change the world for the better, to benefit society. First, he bought two new ambulances, then, on her instructions, he repaired the kindergarten and, as Danil did not resist, the city had to arrange a Russian folk dance competition. The dance festival was shown even on federal TV channels, the next year Nastya connected the entire region, almost all twenty-three cities took part. It's good to be the mayor's wife, just call and everything is decided very quickly: both the site and the money are in the budget, and the media gather on command and write laudatory reviews.
The inhabitants of the provincial town idolized Nastya, and her soul, striving to sow the good and the eternal, unfolded. And now she has already arranged a new competition among schools, this time for landscaping the territory and even called a fashionable landscape designer from Moscow. People were delighted, they especially liked the figures made of bushes and the clock with a working hour hand made of flowers. Among the volunteers, she gathered the cleanliness police, who proudly watched so that no one littered. The eternal misfortune of Russia - roads, she also decided, at least the central street was normally paved. Every month she held some kind of event: the most beautiful entrance - how many artists were found in this small town! The best playground in the yard - the men themselves made swings, slides and sandboxes. The winners were given modest prizes, but they were more pleased with their photographs in local newspapers. And most importantly, all this was done on enthusiasm, without budget money. Residents even decorated the New Year tree in the city center with homemade toys, and with the saved budget money they bought expensive medicines for the seriously ill. During the three years of Danil Cherkasov's rule, crime decreased, the birth rate increased, the city changed beyond recognition. Residents stopped drinking, watching stupid serials on central TV channels, they were more interested in local news with their faces, and since it’s on TV, you need to look decent. A simple Russian girl, Nastya, was able to do what no ruler in any country could do: she gave people the opportunity to create their own cultural life. She did more to strengthen the marriage than all psychologists put together: will a woman “nag” her husband and yell at her children when she needs to sew a dress for the annual ball of the queens. Oh, it was an unforgettable sight! All the women of the city, from one-year-old girls to the oldest resident of the woman Avdotya, who celebrated her centenary, walked in evening dresses along the main street through a column of admiring men.
Moscow journalists became frequent guests of the town, which they had never heard of before. Thanks to its popularity and rich cultural life, tourists have been drawn to the small Ural city. Small business began to develop - mini-hotels, souvenirs. Nastya became a celebrity, and Danil, receiving praise from above and from his own father, was already trying on the governor's chair. At one of the press conferences devoted to the problem of small towns, Putin himself set him up as an example, calling him a young, energetic mayor with a creative streak. But then there was a scandal.
One girl with reduced social responsibility, as the president designated this type, left for the capital of the region and gave an interview to the yellow press about her love relationship with Danil Cherkasov, and even provided the editors with photographs from the sauna. But even here Nastya saved Danila, she turned to the residents, read out a report on the achievements of the mayor and the new plans of the city council. Danil had to squeeze the officials and start building a new hospital, as well as the Palace of Culture - this was already Nastya's desire. The construction was proceeding rapidly, TV reports were regular and everyone quickly forgot about the scandal, the main thing is to switch the attention of the people in time.
This incident brought them closer, now they not only talked about business, but also heart to heart, and sometimes even fell asleep in the same bed. Not that Danil lost interest in a wild life, but more and more often he wanted to be at home with his wife. With Nastya, he felt calm, with her he was like behind a stone wall, she supported him in everything, helped, prompted and helped out, like a real Russian woman from Russian fairy tales. He even began to like folk dances, once at the fair he bought himself a shirt in the style of the Russian national costume.
Once he was driving home and unexpectedly asked the driver to stop near the flower shop. As soon as Danil left, the saleswoman called all her friends, which means she informed the whole city that the mayor bought a hundred and one roses for any wife: “This is what love people have! And when asked for what reason, whether it’s Nastenka’s birthday, he answered: “Just like that!”
Nastya met him with a delicious dinner, she was in a cocktail dress and even put a bottle of wine on the table.
- How did you guess that I was with flowers? Daniel kissed his wife on the lips.
- So today is a special day. You are about this, aren't you?
- Yes, I'm actually just like that. And what's the reason? - he went to the bathroom, - Wait, I'll wash my hands, tell me.
When Danila entered the living room, Nastya had already poured wine into glasses.
- For freedom! She made a toast.
Clink of glasses, a sip of red wine and Danil's perplexed look.
- I do not understand - he looked carefully at his wife.
- Our marriage bond ended today. We're getting a divorce, honey! - Nastya sat down on a chair, throwing her legs back and Danil lustfully looked at the beautiful female knees.
- I don't want to. It's all right, - he looked at her and for the first time noticed that that quiet, downtrodden dance teacher was no more. A gorgeous, well-groomed young woman sat in front of him, but most of all he was struck by her look - confident, bold, courageous.
- Sorry, dear, but we have drawn up one piece of paper at the notary's office. You know that I will always remain a friend to you, so we will part very quietly, without scandals, we will come up with a reason why I will leave the city, but for appearances I will periodically visit you and attend official receptions, - she went into the corridor and he noticed a suitcase, - Sorry, a taxi has already arrived. And yes, here is a folder with my suggestions, do a few more good deeds for the city until you become governor. Thanks for the flowers, but I can't take them with me.
When Danil was left alone, he sat in silence for a long time. He was in shock. How so? Surely that can't be right, can it? And if he can, then not with him. He called dad. Of all the words of profanity, the father said only one phrase corresponding to the Russian literary language: “They don’t get divorced with such people! For the sake of people like her, kings abdicated!”
Nastya stayed overnight in a small Moscow hotel, she had many important meetings in the morning. During her marriage, she has earned enough connections, and connections are everything! Her future was determined and calm. She slept well for the first time, however, in the morning she got a little bored with the lovely inhabitants of a provincial town, and what can I lie to herself - she really missed Danil.
Danil called her every day, then flew to Moscow - it was necessary to sign divorce papers. He tried to talk to her about feelings, but she translated everything into deeds. She was very worried whether he studied her folder with proposals for the improvement of the city, whether he paid attention to the eighth point.
He did not understand at what moment love came to him, but he realized how cruel and soulless he was towards Nastya. At the end of spring, she came to the opening of a new school, the construction of which was also her merit - she tracked down a millionaire, originally from this town, and he sponsored the construction. The press secretary gave Danil a printed speech, he began to read the text:
- I am glad to welcome everyone to the opening of a new modern school. This is an important event for our city. Over the past four years, we have achieved a lot: the birth rate has increased by 5%, production has increased, it is planned to open a dairy plant, which was closed in the difficult nineties for Russia. Our country is growing, and with it our city is gaining momentum. Together we were able to achieve good results in a short time, you already know that I am being transferred to the capital of the region. After becoming governor, I will continue to develop small towns. Every inhabitant of our vast Motherland should live with dignity and be proud ... - Danil hesitated, put down the sheet and looked at Nastya, - The most important thing in life is love. Without the love and support of the family, we are nothing. I am grateful to my wife and I think you too, - at that moment there was a storm of applause, and the photographers turned their cameras on Nastya, Danil continued, - Often we men do not appreciate our wives, we do not pay attention, we are rude, but on Russian women worth the world. Only thanks to them we live, only they give life to a new generation. Nastya, my dear Nastya, I love you, - Danil hugged his wife and the photographers captured the kiss, and the lucky ones were lucky to take a picture, as a tear rolled down the mayor's cheek. The women of a provincial town sighed tenderly: “Sometimes people have love!”
They drove silently to the airport.
