So the Irish dance world is full of big wigs, hard shoes, soft shoes, poodle socks, and of course horribly expensive (albeit beautiful) solo dresses. Simply, these are super embroidered, bling-ed out dresses that girls compete in.
They often cost more than a simple wedding dress.
I’ve always wanted to try to make one and have been on the hunt to find an appropriate pattern.
I found one!
I’m super excited – I just want to try and put one together – NOT that I have one of those super fancy, industrial embroidery machines mind you but – I’ve always wanted to ATTEMPT to make a solo dress.
I’m thinking I need to wander around a fabric shop to see what fabric would work.. I do have some ideas………
but – YAY!
