On Monday when I asked for feedback on my black tie choices I realised I needed a formal top in my wardrobe.
A go-to top for formal occasions that I could wear with a number of things.
I made this top from an offcut my sister gave me, some black satin for back panels and lining (in my stash) and the same pattern that was used for my wedding dress.
As every seam is boned and it has a concealed zip down the back seam I did have to buy a zip and 3 of boning.
Still for a total cost of $10 I’m pretty pleased.
And finally – yes I decided to wear this and embrace my inner ‘fairytale princess’ over my ‘sophisticated, hot mama’ option.
Thanks for all the feedback. Hopefully there will be more black tie events in my future and I’ll get to wear the black backless number for one of those! Once I went to it I was very glad I made that choice. (more about that another time) and for those interested a backwards mirror shot of the makeup.
Other creative show and tell here.
