SALE TILL MARCH 17th
Fine dressmaker workmanship went into designing this vintage Traditional Irish Solo Dancing dress / costume. This was tagged a 12 by the estate sale. Please check measurements...
The fabric is a medium weight navy gabardine with large wales. I am not sure if this good quality fabric is a wool blend or all synthetic. The pale pink lining feels like silk..but not positive.
There is Celtic gold color, not metallic, accents on bodice and skirt with clear rhinestone accents.
The shirt has inserts of pink satin and Celtic embroidery. The cuffs are pink satin with a small bow.
The collar is hand croched.
This Traditional Irish Dance Dress has been worn and much enjoyed by a child years ago. I also have 2 other of her dance dress in other designs made by the same designer in sizes 10 and 14 listed in my shop. The workmanship is fine and not like the newer dance dresses of today. The navy dress is in very good used vintage condition. The only thing that I could detect are shiny spots on the back of the bodice that could have come from a too hot iron. This is noticeable while holding the dress close to the light and eye...not from any distance. I was so delighted to find these dresses. In fact, I was walking out from an estate sale with nothing and while walking past a low rack I just happened to touch this dress. I was not looking for girl's dresses at that time. I was thrilled that they had 2 others!
Here are the measurements....
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER...13"
I will attach the 2 other styles to this listing for you to see in case I do not list the others in fast enough!
Please see the rest of my shop!
