Cinderella Syndrome

I find myself unexpectedly attending a ball, and in typical fairytale style I have nothing to wear. And given that a fairy godmother seems unlikely to step forward I am reliant upon my own wits and skill.
Ha.
Now, in an ideal world I'd be able to make this in time (view D, with the flowing cummerbund of course).


But that pattern isn't even available in Australia yet. And said ball is next Friday. I need to get creative quickly. And given I'll have no time to search for nice fabric, I think I'm going to have to get upclose and personal with... satin. That most unforgiving and unflattering of fabrics.

Did someone say 'knitting'? said...

I hope you find some nice satin fabric and make it on time. I think you'll be able to pull it off though... you look nice and slim so don't worry! :)

I still love satin, it is so princessy.

It's so annoying it isn't here yet.. there's another pattern I like by vogue http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2970.htm?tab=designer_sportswear_br_suits_coats_jackets&page=1 and of course spotlight don't have it yet.. good luck with your creation, it'll be gorgeous I'm sure :)
