Okay, I have a confession to make. I don't wear jeans. I have a lovely pair, and used to wear them all the time, but haven't worn any for about 12 months.
This kind of makes more casual outings a little difficult for me.
I have this dilemma at present. I have a 30th Birthday Party to go to next weekend at the Birthday Boy's house. I've been instructed to wear something of a casual nature.
Michael and I had a conversation about what this is for me. Apparently (and correctly) Michael thinks I do slobbing around the house or glam girl in a pretty frock really well. Nothing in between.
I am sewing up Vogue 9668 in a red wool crepe and initially thought to wear that. It is too dressy. What should I wear????
I'm admiring Stitchy Witch's Jersey Cynthia Rowley Dress
I'm a bit put off though by most seamstress' comments that attaching the yoke to the bodice is really difficult.
I love the look though.
My other thought is to make a similar dress using the Burda Style Melissa bodice (very similar to the Jenny dress) with a basic gathered skirt on it.
What would you wear to a house-party for a 30th birthday? Any suggestions for what I could make? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
