A frock for cocktails & #EdinburghFrocktails

When a chance comes up to get all glammed up I will jump at it.  But then the overwhelming feelings that I’ve got to make what I’m wearing fit like a dream, it’s scary – REAL SCARY and It’s to be ready for Saturday the 2nd of September!

Speed isn’t my strongest point when it comes to making something.  I look at all the Instagram feeds and see what and how many creations are made in a day and some people creative sometimes 3 or 4 in a weekend, which again scares me.  The fact is, if I do rush things, then it looks rushed and not brilliantly finished.

So instead of me leaving the frock until the very last minute, I better start thinking pattern and fabric now.

Question, How glam are we talking about?  (cause I don’t want to be under or over).

This dress must be easy to make.  But it has to be wow (at least to me anyway).

Plus like Lesley of Sew_Sleep _Deprived, we also have a big fat zero of weddings to go to and feel the need to actually get dressed up.  I am lucky that we have a social life due to having no kids though.  And like Lesley, I am super jealous of the Dressmakers ball and the Sew Brum meet up, we really need to add a disco ball event for us Scottish Sewists!

So what am I thinking?

I love to do something with a lace panel.  Maybe just the bodice and then the skirt and just flow.

So that’s the thought process at the moment, I’ll let you know how I get on with it later, perhaps leaving the big reveal until the actual #edinburghFrocktail date (yeah I know, I am a big tease)!

So if you’d like to come and join Lesley and the Scottish Sewists for a cocktail, please note your interest in the comments section on her blog post.

Cheers,

Emma

  1. Aww maaaaan I’m so gutted I’m away for this – but I’m just hoping we all catch the bug and it becomes a regular thing. I’ve also been super jealous of all the ‘down-south’ shenanigans. I think whatever you make you’ll look lovely, don’t pressure yourself, plenty of toile action and you’ll be ace. Raise a glass for me – I’ll see you all at the next one!
