i made this dress last year for the benidorm fiesta!! everyone dresses up and its great fun. this one shouldered dress was an easy two piece pattern from last year. i call it my go to pattern as i’ve made a few variations on the origional by adding a sleeve etc’. i used two feather boas and they where a good match. the feathers took me longer to hand stitch on then making the dress lol. three hours in total. i did lose a few feathers but my friend who’s daughter irish dances gave me a great tip, they use! hairspray!! i sprayed the feathers like mad and it worked.
