Using Gerber AccuMark Pattern Design Software, I have designed a jazz dance costume. The costume, which will be showcased in the Dance Department's Annual Undergraduate Senior Projects Concert, is based upon the basic leotard and follows the history of jazz dance aesthetics. I experienced the entire production process, from creating the design to sewing the final products together. Although specifically made for the Senior Projects Concert, this dance costume could be sold to any jazz, lyrical, or contemporary dancer in any size or color(s).
