Keep the Flame Alive: The Podcast for Olympics Fans

Episode 26: Figure Skating Dresses with Pat Pearsall

Release Date: March 29, 2018

Unless someone has a wardrobe malfunction on the ice, it’s rare to hear an announcer talk about a figure skating costume. Yet they’re a vital part of a skater’s competition.

We wanted to know more about the clothes, so Alison spoke with figure skating dress designer Pat Pearsall, who gives us the scoop on the dresses she designed for two-time Olympian and PyeongChang 2018 bronze medalist Mirai Nagasu, what she thinks of mesh matching, and how to avoid wardrobe malfunctions. Plus, Jill reports about her amazing time at U.S. Speedskating’s Tour of Olympians!

Check out Pat’s designs at her website, and follow her on Insta and Twitter.
