I have red (matte) silk that needs to be a dress appropriate for a Sunday afternoon wedding. It's my sister's signature color, and since she'll have to wear white that day, my sisters and I have decided to wear red for her. Did you know I'm the last of 9 (5 girls and 4 boys)? (Don't worry biggest sister... the bride does not check my blog!)
So, I need your help! I've narrowed my favorites down to these two BWOF from the May 09 issue. My fabric (amount and weight) will work for both, so I can go either way.
Dress 117 (3 dots)Here's the pics at BWOF."Enjoy making a grand entrance? Then this slim dress in moss green satin with cap sleeves is just the thing for you! The draped front bodice is just one of its many attention-grabbing details."
I like the lines of this (sexy, sexy!), but worry about my leftover baby pooch sticking out. I think the pleats will help hide it, and I really like how simple this is for a Sunday afternoon luncheon. Just picture it in red... where's Angie the wonder-techie with Paint when I need her???
Dress 122 (2 dots)Here's the pics at BWOF.
"Très chic! When wearing this feminine summer dress in washed silk with short balloon sleeves you’ll feel like you‘re in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris."
Paris aside, the A-line skirt will be more forgiving, but I'm afraid it's too casual. But the red silk will amp it up...
So ladies, voice your opinions. DH, you can chime in, too. Big Sis, what's your vote (I bet it's the first one...) Little Miss Princess likes the second one, but what say you?
p.s. Thanks for your compliments on the prom dress, it's a huge weight off my chest to have it be done and see how much she enjoyed it. If I didn't value your opinions and feedback, I wouldn't be asking you to help me choose this pattern now, would I???
