My first solo!

I am so very excited... I picked up my new solo dress today. It was made by the wonderfull Molly Bennett and Knotwork to Me, and I couldn't be happier.

I'm getting better pictures taken on Saturday, but I couldn't resist doing a self-timer snapshot tonight.

Anyway, I had to share, especially with people who understand my excitement, since there's no one around here who understands the giddiness of getting that first solo.

Wow, that is a *gorgeous* dress! And you have every right to look that happy in it!

Other question: what wig do you wear? It looks so good!

Cluich- The wig is the wig pro collection, dancers style. I've not danced in that yet, since Colorado judges don't like full wigs on adult dancers. I usually compete in the poppy claw clasp syle- that one looks pretty much like my own hair.

^^ Really? That's silly, especially since you look so good in it! At least you're wearing the wig instead of the wig wearing you (like you see with quite a few kids ...)

I saw that dress hanging up at the dance studio on wednesday and thought it was beautiful! I glad to see it's yours. I love it that more adults in Colorado are getting solo dresses, it makes it more fun. By the way at Winterfeis there were at least 3 or 4 full wigs on adults, I don't think people care what 1 judge commented once.

Glad the dress turned out so well; I have to give credit to Reelghillies for the design and her role in making it.

I absolutely love the moon made from knotwork and the two on the side panels look like dolphins to me. I keep clicking on this thread just cause I like your dress so much! How long did it take to make it?

Molly and her lovely crew designed it last spring, I picked the fabric in July, and it would have been finished in November, had I not injured myself. Since I wasn't going to need it for three months, we knocked back the finished date to this weekend, so I could have it for my birthday. So it's hard to say how long it took. Molly? anything to add?

It's lovely! I think you ought to wear the wig in competition, it suits your face and balances nicely with the dress. Post more pictures! What's the back look like?

Carlow63, Pog chose a "rabbit-eared" cape, and Reelghillies blended the knotwork on the front into wavelike double spirals for the hem.

I love the knotwork on the center panel--looks like a moon and stars.

Good luck in it. It's lovely!

That's such a pretty dress. Those are great colors for you!!!

You'll do great. believe me- first solos do so much for your dancing: I went from not placing all in my first prizewinner feis (in a school dress) to getting first in my second with my dress.
