Dance by Lina Update: Spring and Summer collection

Update on my dance wear line, we’re currently trying to develop 4 new things. The portable ballet barre, a mens sizing chart, a tweens sizing chart and a plus size line. I recently gave up on making leotards as it is too difficult to deal with the spandex fabric. I decided to stick to warmers, knit and cotton. Also some skirts, and our favourite tutu bag.

Here are some of the new colours we might be introducing by the end of this month! You can follow my Instagram account for other updates on colours. These colours are for our knit warmers.

For our long skirts, which did so well last year we decided to add a new  for spring: PLUM, we are also hoping to add at least one more rose colour, then for our portable ballet barre update we just finished our first sample! So we are much excited to showcase this by the end of the month.

We always appreciate our customers comments. So any suggestions are welcome! A lot of these ideas always come from you guys and what you guys want to see me develop next, Thank you for always supporting my line, its really almost like a dream come true that started as my own little hobby into becoming something quite big and special to me.

This is me 3 months after opening my official ballet dance wear line in the Philippines. Its been a big learning curve for me. It really feels like years already. Here are some of our BTS photos, I’m really hoping that I could do more things this year. I’ve been feeling a bit stuck this month to be honest. However this photoshoot was a really good decision for our new update on the website details. Check out http://dancebylina.bigcartel.com for more details.

This is the second photoshoot we had this month and I never got how important it was to have things like this until I started posting good photos. I used to just take photos by myself at home without realising how important the quality and style of photos are to attracting more viewers. I can’t wait to see what I’m going to come up with next! Tons of new challenges await me.

As suggested by my boyfriend, he told me to make this behind the scenes category on my page to show updates on what I have been doing for my Dance by Lina dance products. So far I have started production on Foot stretchers and my new Leotards. I’m still working on my website and for now I still have a long way to go.

Here’s a full view of how it would look like when used

I remember looking for the fabric for the foot stretcher. It took me about an hour to dig into the pile of fabric through many warehouses until I found these two very cute designs. I would have wanted 3 designs but I guess two was enough. Next were my leotards, looking for the rose coloured plain fabric was a struggle. Its really difficult to get by nice fabric because many local companies pre order them and leave nothing for the warehouses.

Heres the final outcome on the leotards that I was sketching a week ago. I’ll be posting some of my sketches from my snapchat and Instagram. Hopefully I could update my blog soon when I finish the other designs and move on to my other products. I’m really excited to make my contract official with The dance store Philippines.
