3. What are asymmetrical and full-cut dance skirts?
Most of our figure skating dresses have symmetrical short skirts. We also provide option to change it to asymmetrical dance skirt (one side shorter than the other) or full-cut dance skirt (one inch above the knee in the front while one inch below the knee in the back - the difference between the front and back of the dress is usually about 5 inches or 10 centimeters including a few inches for the length of the knee).
4. For boys/men figure skating shirts, can I add matching pants and belts?
Yes! You can select the customization options in the product page. We make pants and belts of various colors to match with the color of the shirts. The belt and the side seams of pants are decorated with white rhinestones. If you want to remove the decoration or prefer different color decoration, please let us know by putting your specific requirement in the "Additional Comments" text box.
5. How to apply rhinestones with an iron?
Preheat The Iron:
Preheat the iron to a high setting. Turn off the steam.
Preparing The Rhinestones:
Place the cloth or fabric on a firm, flat surface. Before applying the rhinestone, insert a piece of paper between the front and back of the garment so the glue will not seep through the backside of the garment.
On the back (bottom) of each rhinestone is a heat-sensitive glue. Inspect the rhinestone designs and decide where you want to place them in the fabric. Make sure you are happy with where you want to place the rhinestones because once ironed they are attached permanently to the fabric.
Ironing The Rhinestones:
Cover the rhinestones with a piece of cotton cloth and iron the rhinestones with a firm, even pressure. Do not move or slide the iron. Heat all areas for about 15 to 30 seconds depending on the size of the rhinestones and design, larger rhinestones take more time. Reposition the iron once or twice when you think some parts of the design did not receive heat pressure.
Let the rhinestones cool to room temperature. If any rhinestones become loose, re-iron the areas where the rhinestones were lifted. To make sure that all rhinestones are firmly in place, turn the garment inside out and iron briefly from the back of the fabric. To prolong the life of your rhinestone clothes, machine-wash it inside-out on a gentle cycle with cold water and hang to dry.
Apply rhinestones using hotfix applicator.
If you only need to attach a few rhinestones, it's better to use a hotfix applicator.
