Of course it is always about what you are going to wear.
I made this dress last year out of a great blue rayon.
I adore it but Im not too keen on the sleeve treatment. Also, the darts in the back were a bit too snug. So, I decided to rework this dress in order to wear it.
I took out two darts in the back, and thought that I would have to alter the skirt to compensate for the extra fabric but the stretch was subtle enough that I didnt have to.
I decided to add some open sleeves to the dress. It didnt take too long to do. Now I really adore the dress. Its amazing how some simple fixes can really make something likable again.
At the Cicada, I got a lot of compliments on it, and even a woman who wanted to take some pictures of me to use in a painting. There was a great bartender there tonight and she made me a Manhattan that really hit me at the end of the night. It was fantastic.
At the end of the evening, after the band had begun to pack up, we managed to get to the Oviatt penthouse to see the original suite. Ive been there before, and I adore the bathroom. Its amazing. Here are some pictures of the penthouse and some of the details.
It was a great weekend, and my apartment is destroyed from all the clothes! I got an email today that I was invited to a birthday party at LindyGroove. I dont think I have time to get a present, its this Thursday! I might go. They offer a free beginner class at the start of the night. Its been a New Years resolution to learn to swing dance, so this might be a good start!
We shall see!
