Pattern for ultra simple black tie event dress...suggestions?
My fashion police dtr said I need to wear/acquire/sew a new dress for this event. I would prefer wearing the red sleeveless jacklet dress I wore to her wedding 12 years ago. It is a classic style. Current retired lifestyle is more denim and chambray and I'd rather spend $ on a long handled cobra hoe! Has anyone a quick to sew, simple suggestion?
Fancy evening dinner event at Hotel.
I really prefer an overblouse with a slightly A-line skirt. I already have a floral silk (lined) skirt with 'comfortable to my eyes colors), that I could find a matching solid silk for a top.
All suggestion welcome for consideration! Thanks
