Preparing to Record "One World" - Costume-Making

We listened to many different Celtic songs and went with Celtic Woman’s “One World” because it’s a very powerful song about people working together to create a better world for everyone.

We wanted ethereal costumes to reflect the mood of our song and found a pattern for Celtic/Medieval dresses that was simple, modest, and beautiful. The most difficult part of that process was finding different colors that we all liked and that looked nice altogether!

We bought the material and spent the weekend cutting out our patterns and watching movies together. Mom and Christina sewed our dresses this weekend because Mom has knee surgery scheduled for Tuesday.
