I have survived the earthquake and the hurricane that hit the east coast, and went fabric shopping! My parents are throwing us a lovely engagement party, and obviously I have nothing to wear. I need to look fabulous, but can't find anything in any store. I did find shoes, that I NEEDED to have, so I decided to sew a dress for the occasion.
Simplicity 5707 is something from my stash, and the black dress with the lace overlay was my inspiration. I went with a flocked polka dot tulle instead of lace, in this gorgeous, deep purple/ maroon color. I call it vintage burgundy ooh la la. Silk charmuese in the same color for the dress. I will probably be over-dressed, but oh well.
