DD was devastated when her new dress arrived, not 2 weeks before Oireachtas, and didn't fit (beyond alterations). Two days (and a LOT of stressing) later, we saw DutchShamrock at the Coyle Feis, where she saw JUSTHOWTIGHT DD's dress was and that there was no way it was going to make it to the O! A few quick measurements and 5 days later, she delivered this beautiful, beautiful dress!

I don't know what we would have done without her random act of kindness. DD loves it and she looked beautiful yesterday at the MARO. Thank you, thank you, thank you DutchShamrock!

(PS - for anyone wondering, we were able to sell the "new" dress to another dancer in our school within 8 hours of having it...so it all ended well for everyone!)

What a beautiful dress on an dazzling little girl. Her excitement and joy is obvious.

The most beautiful part of the picture is your dd's brilliant and engaging smile. I couldn't help but smile back. Her smile spreads from ear to ear and is reflected in her sparkling eyes.

It is heartwarming when story ends... "Happily ever after!"

It never ceases me what can happen be accomplished when when people work together. What a wonderful life lesson and memory for your dd!

Thank you for posting the story. The people of DutchShamrock must be very special individuals. They are to be commended for their tireless efforts to ensure this happy ending. (or maybe I should say a happy beginning...)

Best wishes to all

Red seems to be the in colour at the moment. She looks spectacular in this dress. What a beautiful girl she is. I guess you know people in the right places. Well Done DS.

Just to clarify...DutchShamrock is another DDN member. Our daughters have danced "against" each other since they were beginners (we're not from the same school), which makes this story all the more sweet. The true definition of a feis friend!

Thank you, all, for your kind comments. She truly shined on stage!

@ DressShopping--What a fantastic moment to share with you! So did your dd hop off the stage and say "Thanks for making me put my wig back in Mom." :D
