    Wonderful job on the dress! You look fantastic in it. I have question though about your skates. It looks as if you have your tights over the skates. How does that work?

      Thanks :) They are over the boot tights. This means they get wide enough at the bottom and are shaped to stretch over the boot and secure at the bottom with hooks or velcro. I generally just wear them for shows and competitions, because they cover up my scuffed boots but hole pretty easily. There are sewing patterns to make them (I know Jalie patterns do one), but I just bought these from Mondor.
