I wore this dress out to dinner with Mr Sewaholic and his parents, and the waiter called me Lady in Red! And sang a little bit, I think. You can’t go unnoticed in a bright red dress.
What I’m Wearing:
- Self-Stitched Dress: Las Margaritas dress, Vogue 9668 in red wool crepe with bemberg lining.
- Jacket: Club Monaco, from my sister’s closet that she had for at least four years before giving to me!
- Shoes: Nine West, bought at Macy’s in January 2008
- Scarf: thrifted, Value Village.
I love this dress! Did you know the pattern is being discontinued? Buy it now if you like it and might ever want to make it in the future.
Thanks for all the lovely comments on yesterday’s post! I revealed my dorky self and you guys like me anyways. It feels good! Thanks for not laughing at me! You would have laughed for sure if you’d witnessed the swimming lessons… and I bet I can make you laugh singing the alphabet backwards too. Mr Sewaholic suggested I post a video for proof but I’m not so sure about that idea.
Oh and I love that so many of you are speed readers, too! That’s fantastic. You kind of have to be, to keep up on blog-world don’t you? And the secret glasses-wearers too! Tanit-isis is right, HD TV is so much more HD with the glasses on! Plus you can actually see the puck when watching hockey.
Misty, I will find a feather hat picture! In fact let me look right now… again, no laughing!
Ok, so that was in July 2009, it was over 30 degrees out, and I’m wearing over 30 pounds of wool and feathers. It was a memorial for fallen police officers, so we had to stand while hundreds of names were read out loud, and not pass out! And then, actually play the bagpipes too! I get it, I understand the seriousness and the respect of wearing full uniforms but still.
The cool thing about the feather hat is that it’s hollow – you could hide your purse in there! It’s like a cage with feathers on the outside. At the very least you can stash a pair of gloves in there for seriously cold winter parades.
Anyways, it’s no wonder I’m obsessed with sewing. Look at all the crazy things I’ve been required to wear!
