Subject: BS! If these dresses were truly viewed as simple "stage costumes" they would not be so work intensive and cost so much. Same old lame argument:does not compute with the work put into them and the price. In those terms, support your argument, eh?

In reply to: in my experience. 's message, "If you choose to finish a dress this way, good for you, but it is not necessary for a stage costume, and nobody pays more for a dress finished neatly inside. People also first ask about how much letout and letdown there is when buying a used dress or OTR, so it is good to see the seam allowances straight away" on Sunday, December 15, 01:42:25pm

Beyond that, a properly made stage costume does NOT have shoddy workmanship. Seams are exposed where possible for alterations, but everything is finished neatly with the intention of being able to use, and reuse the costume many times. Professional stage costumes are WELL made, and Irish dance dresses shouldn't be any different. This isn't bridal wear, but everything should still be carefully finished, with a mind towards future alterations and wear/tear. (NT)--Tuesday, December 17, 10:01:15am
