I really thought I had reached an age where my peers were finished with marriage and were having divorce parties instead. (Sorry! But you know it's true!)
But no, a couple of FL's golfing friends have decided the time is right and have invited us to attend their nuptials in November. Which would be fine... except they have also announced a tartan theme!
So I need something new to wear. In tartan. So help me!
I have that lovely blackwatch brushed cotton in the stash. I am wondering if I could get away with a 50's style blouse using the va-va-voom pattern, but with long sleeves, pairing it with a petrol-blue satin skirt?
I happened to buy the satin from Croft Mill a while back, thinking I would make a slinky sleeveless top... but it turned out to be a rather stiff fabric, completely unsuited to blouse-making.
- Would it work as a bubble skirt?
- Would a bubble skirt work with a 50's style blouse?
- Or should I go for a circle-style skirt?
- Would the resulting outfit work for a wedding?
I am not going to ask for your advice on shoes. I am wearing my red Irregular Choice rose shoes again, no matter what!
The sewing queue has just been thrown out of the window. Again.
