It's beautiful. What type of dance does she do?
What is the underlying fabric?
Is there applique as well as embroidery?
Thanks,
She is an Irish dancer, and the level she competes at is where the dancer can wear a solo dress instead of a school dress, which every one in the dance school wears untill they get to a high level, and they also wear it for team competition.
the dress is green velvet and is lined with white peau de soie
The pleat is also white peau de soie, with embroidery.
The harp is applique with embroidery on it too.
I used to do a lot of sewing and remember making a fancy blouse of peau de soie (gosh I love the way that sounds). I used to keep my machine out at all times, but, now this computer sits on the table. It seems like such an effort to get everything set up - threaded, bobbin wound, etc, that I rarely make anything anymore. Plus, all of the fabric chains are now carrying more crafting materials than fabric.
Anyway, the dress is something that she can keep forever. What a treasure.
It is entitely lined inthelovely sounding and looking white peau de soie. The first time she wore it she sat on a Blueberry muffin!!
Thankfully, I know what I am doing and the entire dress is handwashable.
I washed it ad it all came out of the white.
OMG, what a hoot. Sitting on a blueberry muffin is nearly as bad as sitting on a peanutbutter knife!
does she do ceili, sean nos or step dancing? i am involved some traditional irish music festivals in the north east, you may be interested in my friend kirean's site

the dress is quite beautiful
That dress is so pretty! I am more of a cross stitch girl myself. I have never done anything on clothing though.
Sure the dress is cute, but the daughter! WOW!!!
She takes after her mother!!LOL
