"Fashion's Night Out" presented by Birmingham Fashion Week. And this is what I wore:
This is Vogue 1267 from Tom & Linda Platt. Such a fabulous asymmetrical, high-low hem sheath dress. This pattern had been in my "to sew" stack since it first came out. And I thought this occasion was perfect for it.100% fuchsia wool crepe from Mood.com. The pattern suggested a lining and I normally am a firm believer in lining all woven dresses. But this fabric had a natural stretch and the lining fabric (china silk) that I chose, did not. So I decided to go without. I had a lot of concerns on how the dress would wear without one (i.e. would it ride up)?! I wore a nylon slip underneath to make sure that it stayed in place.

I found the neckline to be a bit high. I altered the back and front about an inch. And I finished the seams with my serger. Also, the long side of the hem has a "weight" in it. I used a quarter for my weight. I added a statement necklace, a clutch and mary jane platform pumps to complete the look.
"Wait! Mommy, is my face and hair okay?! Yes, Mikaela... you look beautiful!"
And for my date, I brought Mikaela along! We had a fabulous time!
