The Casino Night that never happened......

Added Apr 13, 2015

Great Yarmouth, ...






We were invited to a “black tie event” including a fancy dinner and a casino night. As always of course I told my husband oh dear, I have nothing to wear and went in search for material and patterns. As luck would have it, I came across a Vogue pattern sale on the internet, saw this and then got even more lucky and found this lovely velvet (even though it is a bit an unusual colour for an evening dress) on sale. a few days later I finished my dress only just to get a phone call saying there hadn’t been enough interest and the casino themed evening was cancelled:-(((((
But then, too many people complained, so at least the dinner was back on and I got to wear my dress :-))

      thank you rita! I love the back, which by the way was a lot easier to achieve then I thought.

      thank you very much RedBelka! The back was why I went for this pattern in the first place.

    wow!! Chula this is a stunning dress, i love the colour as It’s unusual and the back has a big wow factor. You look fabulous and I’m glad you got a meal out of a cancelled night x

      thanks for your lovely comment Mary ! I quite like the colour too, plus it was on sale, so definety worth getting as I needed a lot and didn’t want to spend too much on a dress that I won’t be wearing that often. Unless of course I wear it while I hoover the house :-))

      that would be funny! might just try it, see what the milkman makes of that:-)))
