Complete course of sewing rhythmic gymnastics leotards
What I can teach?
I am able to teach you sewing technologies, that are used in our workshop for production of rhythmic gymnastics leotards, I shall reveal our secrets and “know-hows”.
The majority of technologies, which we use in our workshop, were developed by me personally, when I started sewing rhythmic gymnastics leotards; they were refined and improved to perfection during many years of existence of our workshop.
I shall teach how to professionally sew a leotard and enjoy the creativity of the process.
What I am unable to teach?
I explain how to avoid mistakes in designing, but it is a matter of practise to be able to create beautiful drawings.
I also demonstrate how to draw an applique, explain the main principles of arranging applique elements on leotards, but at the same time I am unable to move your hand to make everything look beautiful.
I explain how to correctly paint and shade elements of leotards for it to start to play, I am unable to make decisions for you on which colours to choose for your leotard, and again I can not move your hand to make painting look professional.

Frequently Asked Questions
Svetlana! The course has been simply extraordinary! Each lesson is a total immersion in the amazing and magical world of beauty. In 2014, my daughter started training in rhythmic gymnastics (it is a similar story for most mothers). And here I am, the one who claimed she would never sew, I was firmly convinced that I could, cut the first leotard. Ugly and crooked, with a thick layer of paint. But my daughter fell in love with it and was overly happy. And then I came across your work. My enthusiasm simply can not be described in words, how wonderful they were! But, unfortunately, I could not leave the younger child to study. And I waited ...
I tried many ways of cutting the leotard base. Readjusted, corrected. And finally, you have opened online courses! Dear Svetlana! Accept my sincere gratitude for your work, patience, talent and desire to pass on your knowledge. Each lesson is an invaluable bundle of knowledge and experience!
I can say with certainty that it was thanks to you that I was able to find something that really pleased me. I know how you feel about the copies. I also have 2 copies of your work. Not being able to learn at the time of tailoring from you, I tried to learn from your work. Svetlana! Creative inspiration! I wish you good luck, lots of health and happiness to you and your team! I bow low before you!
Svetlana! It is very difficult to describe in words all the enthusiasm that I feel after passing your course!
Before training, I sewed just one leotard for my daughter, literally "by trial and error", making a bunch of bloopers, mistakes, repeatedly ripping and stitching again. But still there was a billion questions. And after completing all the lessons, I finally found the answers to all my questions and even more!
Thank you very much and your spouse for this
unique, titanic and priceless work, responsiveness and patience to
your students! I feel sad to part with this course, because it almost
feels like " home" =)) But I'm looking forward to your new
course on sketches!
Svetlana, I thank you for such a wonderful course! For those who cannot come to you personally - this is a find, it's a treasure. I'm glad that I was able to finish my studies, reached the last lesson and, after all, something happened (Hurray !!) as a result, I got to sew, draw, decorate and just receive plenty of positive emotions from the learning process and the creation of such beauty.
After the course
all stages of the process are more settled in my head. Thank
you for the straightforward explanations and clarity of understanding
of technical nuances. Now it's a little thing left, to practice (sew)
and achieve the best result. As a coach, it's close to me. While
creating a new music composition, I will learn to create a leotard
for it to complete the image of a gymnast. THANK YOU !!!
Thank you very much for brining this project to life. I still can not believe that it exists, and I was your student who managed to complete the study. Honestly, I am still overly excited and cannot stop jumping from happiness!!!
After completing the course, I believe to have become an absolutely different person, as if everything had turned inside out and fell into one place.
As a beginner, it was incredibly interesting, I used every opportunity, every spare minute to read and watch the tutorials. I was so eager to finish each lesson asap to start a new one.
This time of being a student was like “Alice in Wonderland” to me. The fairy tale is over but I still have an unbelievably beautiful miniature masterpiece in my hands. I call it a mini leotard, which kept all the magic of emotions from the completed course. It is incredibly gorgeous!
