Thank you and welcome to Karen's photo album of unique square dance outfits. I make my own skirt patterns 100% of the time, and for bodices I check the bridal and formal sections of the commercial  sewing catalogs.  I have a collection of square dance patterns, and I make my own.

PLEASE NOTE:  I did not used to do custom orders; I used to sell on eBay full time.  However, since quitting ebay due to the frequent occurrence of plagiarism, I have been doing custom orders for several years now.   Please visit my "sale" link to see what I am currently working on.  If there is nothing available, please feel free to contact me to put in a request.  I have hundreds and hundreds of satisfied customers all over the world and I love what I do - designing beautifully dresses just for you.  Email me if you want to collaborate with me on a project. I will do my best to create something fabulous and sensational just for you.  Your satisfaction is my greatest pleasure.

Themed Dresses * * Everything from "Adult Sissy" to super frilly ruffly dresses, which can be used as anything from square dance outfits, to costumes, to role playing, etc.  Top notch quality items are professionally sewn & pressed and are not to be mistaken as costume quality.
Border Patrol Outfits which take advantage of border prints, panels and quilters' fabrics.
Christmas Special Christmas prints can only be worn at Christmas time, but what better way to get dressed for the holiday!
Clogging Instead of wearing crinolines, these shortie skirts and matching blouses are perfect for workshops... or for clogging.
Costumes In 2002 I was introduced to Renaissance clothing and tried my hand at some simple costumes.
Favorites My favorite skirt pattern is one I call "split gore". It allows a combination of fabrics in one skirt, sometimes the ideal way to use a minimal amount of an expensive print.
Fetish In 2002 I was introduced to the world of Adult Baby and Adult Sissy dressing.  I have put the "AB" stuff in this category.  While these look like children's clothes, they are actually large enough for adults.
Floral Design It was fun designing something unusual with either floral print or using my quilting talents to create my own floral design of a tulip.
Formal Occasion For special dances, like Round Dance Festivals, when organza and satin, gold and silver are the norm. The "sissy" dresses often fit into this category.
Indian Affairs Outfits made with Indian prints, using conchos and feathers for trim.
Men's Shirts Men's shirts are creatively cut to maximize the print.
Nature's Corner Fabrics featuring animals and outdoor activities... eagles, deer, horses, snakeskin...
Matching Outfits Sometimes men like to match their partners.
Mix 'n' Match Ideal for traveling... take one skirt and several tops, add a vest, remove a concho, add an overskirt... change the look!!!
Novelty When the Mickey Mouse dust ruffle looks soooo inviting to make a square dance outfit with....
Other Many more outfits, all thumbnail-size so you can click on the ones you want to look at in enlarged view.
Patchwork The effect of quilting without the effort!
Patriotic Prints To show off the country that you live in or visited...
Pink Eye Pink is one of my favorite colors.  
Prairie Outfits Callerlab has approved the long skirts as acceptable dancewear, which travellers enjoy without worrying about packing crinolines.
Sale Although I seldom wear the crinoline outfits any longer, I still enjoy designing them. Don't hesitate to tell me what you'd like to see on this page.  Mastercard & Visa accepted through PayPal.  Watch for UniKaren on eBay too!
Skirts From circle skirts to gored skirts... from ruffles and lace to something simple, anything goes...where she stops, nobody knows....
Southwest & Feathers The "signature" design for UniKaren Designs... a mini yoke on alternating gores in the skirt, tipped off with conchos with beads & feathers...
Stripes I am not into stripes, but when vibrant colors like red & royal blue are combined with yokes, conchos & feathers...
Summer Sounds A pretty array of lightweight, sleeveless dresses.
Wild West Square dance clothes which incorporate the increasingly popular "western" look of yokes and fringes.
