    My dress is kind of heavy and it usually will fall off while jiving even being tucked. Anyone has any tip? Deeply appreciate!

    A quick question and hope any swing/jive dancers can help.

    Does anyone have tips on how to keep a quickly tucked heavily beadded train from falling?

    I know a hook wouldn't hold in my Jive either - a lot of them have the same issues as a tuck because of the up/down movement especially in your lower body.

    You basically want a sewing hook that can "lock."

    Not really, because of the way most of them are shaped. I tried to find an image, but I need to go through my closet - I know one of my older showcase costumes has one.

    I've seen an actual button, and te loop for the button sewn into a seam so it's pretty tight on there.
