Gaelic Games a.k.a. "black feis"

This weekend I will travel to Killarney to participate in the Gaelic Games feis!

The rules are: no dresses, no stiffener, no embroidery, no glitter... Only simple black skirts and tops or simple black dresses are allowed.
So, here is my outfit :-) Of course, I'll be wearing some tights to cover my ghostly white legs...

Please note that I will not be able to answer any emails with questions or requests from thursday 27th of sept to monday 1st of october.

Congratulations for Teresa on getting a first place at the Bonn Feis. Very well done!

Katy's dress

The next dress to be is going to be for Katy. The base fabric is a lovely sequinned petrol taft. The design has some lovely flowers on it that I really like. It will be a standard 3 panel dress with some pleated and ruffled details.

Next up is the cutting of the skirt applique and embroidery.
