Anyone know where I could get a dress that is a "Jean Butler style" like she wore in Riverdance?

-Try Reel Irish Designs. They are out of Texas. And the owner is great. She made my solo dress and I just love it.
You can email her at reeldancer42@hotmail.com

Anyone know where I can get a pattern of a show dress in girls sizes? Any ideas other ideas??


-Just buy a dress pattern that they call a princess line. The front piece is cut on the fold and the side pieces are coming from the sleeve at the bust line on down to the bottom of the dress. There are many patterns if you look that you can change around to what you want.

-Check the KWIKSEW pattern book. I made a Jean Butler-style white dress for my daughter using one of their patterns.

-The most important things to look for in a pattern would be the general shape of the dress. Princess seams are essential -- look through the pattern catalogues to see the choices. The patterns also list the finished width, the wider the fuller. Place a tape measure circle around your daughter's legs to get an idea of the fullness. Remember that if you shorten the dress a lot, it will be narrower than the pattern states. Once you find a pattern with the correct overall shape, you can change the sleeves and neckline to suit your preferences.
