This coming Saturday I am going to a Sole Traders Christmas party which has been organised by Shilpa Mistry (no not related lol) and is being held at the Indian Ocean Restaurant. I could have a party for one but I guess that wouldn't be much fun now would it? or would it? :)
Joking aside it's a great way to not only enjoy good food and drink but also to make new friends and acquaintance. At last years party I met the lovely Deborah from Tiger Photography and we have since become very good friends.
I've not had time to shop and to be honest I haven't seen anything which shouts out and says "buy me" and I certainly haven't had time to make anything. Which put me on a mission to look through all my "going out" clothes - not that I go out much these days. So having rummaged through my collection I have decided this year I am going to wear a dress I made quite a few years ago and which still fits. It's a gorgeous deep wine colour and the over-dress is in grey with splashes of green, purple and deep red. I've altered the original dress pattern so that it splits open in the front to show the dress underneath.
I've taken some pictures today - not the best photography as you can see but you get the idea.
My Party Dress
I'm adding this to Wendy's handmade Monday blog even though it's not something I've made this week. I'm sure Wendy won't mind me sharing something I've made previously. If you have some spare time why not pop on over to Wendy's and see what everyone else has been up to.
