A lot of people start with a Kwik Sew skater costume pattern, IIRC.  It's design for four-way stretch fabric, so it works as a good base for a ballroom costume.  Let me google.  I shall return. Smiley

Woulda  thunk?  McCalls bought Kwik Sew.  Shocked

Anyway. Yep.  I'm pretty sure these are the right patterns .  Not sure hat machine you use -- a regular sewing machine or a serger -- but these patterns use the right types of fabric,  IMO. Smiley

Exactly. And the fabrics can be a real challenge.  Stretchy fabrics paired with slippery ones. *sigh*

Latin costumes can be a bit different, though.  I've known people who just started with a bodysuit or (the brave ones) a ready-made bikini top and pants.
