oh my gawd..MY NEW DRESS!!!

at last!!

its red and white--obviously lol.
its not quite finished yet.
its kind of a compilation of my mum (dressmaker, not specifically irish dresses) and my boyfriends mum (who's made dresses for worlds) ideas.

in the picture the bodice is pinned on, and the sleves are yet to be adjusted.
the underskirt is a bubble skirt,which i find irrisistibly cool. and i'm still finishing the headband (sorry, the picture wont come up.).

its quite a bit more bling-tastic in real life, with gltter overlay wherever theres white or lace.

the cape, not finished yet, but is white lace with the glittery fun.

just had to share :)
ill post pics after my first feis in it (which happens to fall on the night of my 18th birthday)

A wonderful dress, I love the butterflies on the underskirt. Why are you not using this fabric for your cape? Want to go incognito?

thanks for the lovely comment :)
yeah i was trying to keep it as traditional as possible (keeping with modern designs) so i thought lace would flow with the look better.
i'm probably going to use a big butterfly as a broach for the cape though, so the underskirt isnt totally random.

I know I said this on Saturday, Ond, but I'm going to say it again: "AAAA FKJHAFKJFHKJFHKFJF!!1!!1". The dress is gorgeous, and it looks stunning on you. His Mum couldn't've done a better job, it all fits together so well and suits you right down to a tee.

Now I wish I would've entered this weekend's feis to see you dance in it! Ah well...there's always INDA Premierships. :) You'd better do it! I want to see your Drunken. :D

i have more pictures!! from my comp yesterday.
Image hotlink - 'http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f40/Onigigz/maherhamiltonfeis_edited.jpg'

excuse the whiteness of my skin lol.
i tanned i promise! its just that the tan didnt take effect till this morning haha

and i was very dissapointed when i was told that i didnt kick high enough so you could see the butterflies lol.

i tied for 6th/11 which i was extatic about!!! against various state and national champions from my age group and the one above me.
and the girl i tied with was 5th in the state (kinda like your O overseas) last year-but to give credit where its due, she did stop so she probably wasnt dancing her best lol.

in concluion, i was very very happy.
