A friend recently asked me to make her daughter an Irish dancing dress for Christmas and a matching dress for her American girl doll with this kind of flavor (or at least, this is one of the pictures she sent me):
I’m excited–and a little intimidated. I have never seen an Irish dancing dress in person, but am pretty confident in my abilities to make one. It will be a tough project without an embroidery machine (I’ll be faking that part), but it should be interesting.
Thank goodness the husband is going to be out of town this week–I can’t wait to get down to working out the embroidery and designs. Just me, the puppy, and hopefully only a few late nights. Pictures to come later.
