Brigid is a dancer in the MAtR. I was contacted by one of the senior dancers at her school who had been given the job of liasing with the chosen dressmaker. I was very lucky that this was me.
^This was the original drawing I did and e-mailed to Brigid and her mom for their approval. They liked the design, apart from the striped fabrics in the pleats so we used the pink and green combo. My trusty assistant, well my friend, Margaret and myself started the dress and despite a few unforseen delays along the way, we finished it in time for Brigid's 'O' in Philly

This is the headband we sent over, together with a regularone which could have been a backing for a tiara.
The dress, unfortunately, was water damaged when it got there and to date we're waiting for UPS to make a decision about compensation.
