Description

This dress was made to look similar to my Irish Dancing school’s costume, so that the little girls could match their dolls.

The designs were cut out of Thermoflex (http://beacongraphics.com/heat_transfer/thermoflex-2.html) on a vinyl plotter and ironed on.

The dress is full lined, just like the real costumes are, and include a matching headband.

I made the pattern myself, and simplified the knotwork design of this costume: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3005/2746050423_1e3b6fbcb1.jpg

    Too cute! I should start lining everything in soft, shiny satin. That dress looks so comfortable!
