Wouldn't the Sewing get rather damp Cat??

Sorry.  ;)

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

The first batch of blogger garments have been put up and I must say I have deeply underwhelmed.  Only 'Scruffy Badger' has gone for glitzy fabric, and I wonder if Portia has even been to a cocktail party?  :(  Am I wrong to think that 'party clothes' need glam fabric?

I'm with you there- cocktail dresses should be glam and dressy, not something you'd have tea with your aunty in.  Maybe because so many places serve cocktails these days, they've become ordinary fare?

I would have entered it if there was free choice with the patterns. none of them inspired me at the time [although I have made a velvet version of the one Scruffy is wearing, with the other neckline option]
C'est moi!

I should have entered this as I'm always in dire need of nice clothes. Quite disappointed with the pics, though they aren't exactly big enough to see in full detail.

If you click on the makes in this link, you'll be taken to their blog page.   0_0  0_0 Two of them actually chose classic cocktail dresses.
