Figure skating legend and 1976 gold medalist Dorothy Hamill recalls her first skating costume. It wasn’t designed by Vera Wang or Christian Lacroix. Alas, it was a sad, frumpy little frock hand-stitched by her mother.
“My first skating costume was red and knitted and it had a little white marabou trim at the bottom,” Hamill recalled. “That was it. No other embellishments.”
