Irish Colour

Tomorrow the girls are competing in a Irish Dancing Competition. We were fortunate to be loaned a dress for Emily by the teacher (Laura now fits into Emily's old dress). This dress has been worn by many students, but is still stunning.

I can see now why Irish dresses are so expensive. Most of the colours on this dress are solid satin stitch, although some sections are appliqued on. Sequins and rhinestones are also used.

This dress is so heavy. I hope Emily can actually dance in it! Thank goodness the weather has cooled down, November is not really the season in Australia for wearing a heavy velvet dress.
Hopefully after tomorrow I can post some photos of her actually IN the dress!
