Switching back to fabrics bought specifically for my coloring here are two knits. The solid colored one with the sparkles could be a floor length sheath with set in sleeves and a simple slit neckline. It looks like a “slinky knit” but it’s more like an ottoman and backed with a stable knit so there’s not much give to the fabric. The colorful one is a slinky and would make a great long vest or coat.
And here’s my last fabric purchase: Pendleton Challis wool from Denver Fabrics. Pendleton wool is “needle ready” so I don’t have to pre-shrink. The solid is a sand-washed silk.
This combo would make a great jacket, blouse and long skirt.
I have been pondering the other combo today and bought two patterns: Vogue 2134 and Vogue 2716 as well as some matching stretch lace as I am getting cold feet about bare shoulders.
I’m also wondering how formal others will be dressed. This is a not NYC and the Fur Ball is a charity fundraiser for the Humane Society. I’ll ask around tonight at the dance lesson.
