Our family has attended over 10 weddings in the past 2 years. And for several of them, I've been the pianist, so I wear "professional black" to be as inconspicuous as possible.
In September, I attended a wedding that I was not a musician in any way! It may sound shallow of me, but I was thrilled to finally be able to wear color to a wedding (don't get me wrong, I LOVE playing music for weddings, but black is ... black), and in honor of the occasion, I decided to make myself a new colorful dress. :)
6582, which is a 1960 pattern. For a while I had an slight abhorrence to anything from the 1960's, because after all, it isn't as cute as the 1950's, but recently I really started to like the clothing styles, crazy poofy hair, and wacky make-up. :) I guess watching the Dick Van Dyke show at least once a week for the past 4 years has helped me adjust to the 1960's. :)
The fabric is a rayon/linen blend. It was a little "drape-y" for this pattern, so I would recommend using a stiffer fabric, but I still liked the end result.
And who could resist putting on sparkly sunglasses? :)
Thanks as always, to my fabulous photographer sister for the photos.
