So far, we have three weddings to attend this year: Georgia in May, Nantucket in July, and Alabama in September. Here's what I have on the drawing board for my wedding guest wardrobe:
Dress # 1:
Pattern: Gertie's bombshell dress or bombshell bustier with silk organza maxi skirt.
Fabric: I am using my prized Thai silk, purchased on a work trip to Bangkok in 2013.
I have already muslined the bustier and cut and basted the underlining to the silk fashion fabric.
Dress # 2:
Pattern: Anna dress
Fabric: Baby blue lace from Metro, with ivory crepe de chine lining.
Pattern: Gertie's Bombshell bustier + midi skirt
Fabric: TBD -- Cashmerette's Jenny posted about this silk gazar fabric from B&J and I couldn't help but fall in love with it! I went to B&J last weekend to check it out in person and am *thinking* of splurging on it for the midi skirt.
Out of the City
This past weekend, we headed up to Spruceton Inn in the Catskills for some R&R. We spent Saturday and Sunday doing 5-7 mile snowshoe hikes and our evenings enjoying being unreachable. What a difference a device-free weekend makes!
