Homage to My Tarascan Ancestors

I made this as an homage to my Tarascan Indian ancestors.
I incorporated elements from Tarascan Indian traditional dress into a modern style dress. 

The bodice is a modified version of the Georgia Dress from By Hand London Patterns https://byhandlondon.com/collections/sewing-patterns/products/georgia-dress


The skirt is  the Hollyburn Skirt Pattern from Sewaholic http://www.sewaholicpatterns.com/hollyburn-skirt/




I changed it to have a side zipper and pockets because I love pockets.




"I'll leave you with this.
I don't care how many angels can 
dance on the head of a pin. It's
enough to know that for some people 
they exist, and that they dance."
Mary Oliver
