Shaylah’s Dress

Since all are at the Oireachtas is Atlanta now, I can start posting pics of the dresses we have been working on.  Busy, busy, but thankfully not as stressed as last year…even though I put in many, many hours on each project because I am so picky, I do now have a sense for how long it will take me for the most part…sort of…maybe…well, maybe NOT!!!!

Anyway, Gina said I can post some pics of Shaylah’s dress…I will post pics of the dancers in full regalia when I get them.

So, to recap, here are the pieces of Shaylah’s dress with the design that I digitized and embroidered:

This is one side of the back skirt…it will have a reversed pleat. There will be panels on the front of the dress, each one with one of these embroideries on it.

    Beautiful, as always.
    I love the remote control on top of the dress. Is there a button to hold down for higher jumps? Is there a turnout feature you can set to “automatic”? Can you program your steps right in?
