LBD V1250, ver 2.0

Disclaimer: Black does NOT photograph well. Sorry!


Our 12th Anniversary is tomorrow, so we celebrated last night by going to dinner. A fancy-schmancy dinner!


I whipped up another Vogue 1250 on Thursday night during game 5 of the Tigers-Yankees series. What a game! I couldn't deal with just sitting there (it was a nail-biter of a game), so I stepped over to my work table and sewed my stress away.


The fabric is a recent purchase from Haberman's, a stretch crepe de chine, that is both lightweight and soft, like a sueded silk.


I chopped 4" off the bottom, and took in the waist about 1/2" in both side seams. I will pick-up the smaller size pattern at the next Vogue sale...

The greatest thing about this version is that it can be both a "night out on the town" dress, and a "belted with a jacket or cardigan" dress for work.

We had a great meal (crab legs and porterhouse) and a fabulous dessert. The funniest part of the night was our pit-stop on the way home at Home Depot. Can you sat, "over-dressed"???

Very nice! That is the pattern of the year, isn't it? Our 12th anniversary is also tomorrow (Oct 9)--we'll be doing a casual dinner at one of our favorite Indian restaurants.

Ask any man - there's nothing sexier than a woman all done up and in high heels shopping at Home Depot. Amiright?

Happy anniversary!!!

Happy Anniversary! It so happens, that the Oct 9 is our anniversary, also. We've been married 40 years today, and happier than we've ever been. Wishing you many wonderful years together.

Happy Anniversary! You look great in your dress and you both look so happy together. Hmmm, wish I had thought of that dressing option in Home Depot back when I was single:-)
