I think it's one you haven't worn while gardening.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

What's a posh frock?  ;)

I can tell you what it’s not... any of the horrid dresses shown in the Channel 4 ‘The Posh Frock Shop’ program  :devil:

Define holiday season.

We celebrate Diwali, US Thanksgiving, Sinterklaas, Christmas and St. Stephen's day.

Some of them we dress up for (by we, me and my daughter) and some we don't.  Some get new pajamas (Sinterklaas and she can wear them to her pajama day at school, too), some double up duty...all depends what it is what the dress code is.

Any holiday/festival you celebrate and want to wear a posh-ish/special frock/outfit to.
Hope that helps  ;)

Nearest I get to a posh christmas frock is a bit of tinsel round the top of my wellies :)

I've got a pattern for a ridiculous jersey onesie (with a tie waist). Considering making it in a nice velour.

Meh to onesies how do you go weesies without freezies?  I'm thinking more satin lounging jammies for glam....

I don't drink a lot which means I don't wee a lot either. Shewee maybe? Open down flap?

Or I wouldn't actually mind having a little slit at the crotch actually... Probably inappropriate.

Maybe I should make a more voluminous version of my Victorian/Edwardian open crotch undies?  As long as you are in ahem select company, they are very comfy and FAIRLY decent.  I say vicar!

I have some nice royal blue figured velvet which I would like to magic into a posh frock but I would like to wear it this coming Friday!  Trouble is, even though it's jersey and with the right pattern should go together on the overlocker without too much fuss, I have visitors all day tomorrow, and I have meetings and other committments on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Could it all come together in one day? >:) -<

On the topic of everywhere being central to somewhere - the end of a peninsula down in the south east corner of the country isn't very central to anywhere.
