This is an Irish dance dress that I made for my daughter in 2004 so that she could compete in Irish dance competitions (feisanna).  It is also where I learned to satin stitch my appliques!  It took hours and hours to make this dress.  It is a very heavy dress and the front panel is stiffened with super heavy-duty Pellon interfacing.

Thanks!  Nana, she did very well in competitions.  She has a bunch of medals lying around the house.  She is in college now and no longer competes, but she has resumed taking lessons and is also helping to teach the other students in the dance school.

This is stunning! If you enjoyed the process, I'd suggest quilted clothing and enter shows!

Thanks, everyone!  My DD is actually thinking about entering a competition as an adult this summer.  I'm thinking about going down to VA to see her dance again.  I really miss going to the feisanna (Irish dance competitions) with her.  It was always fun mom/daughter bonding time together.
