Choir Wardrobe 09 20 15
Our annual women's conference at church was last weekend; due to the stage set, we didn't even have choir last Sunday; the risers were gone and there was no place for us to stand.
But we're back this week; September colors are black, gold and ivory.
Kinda makes me wanna shout 'Boiler up!'...but I managed to restrain myself.
I actually indulged in a bit of online shopping last month; stumbled across a metallic T from J Crew that I thought would do nicely. It looks tan in the photo, but it really is a sparkly gold. If I had made it, there would be a few tweeks I'd make before I made it again...chief among them being I'd add about 2.5 - 3 inches to the length of it, and I'd lengthen the sleeves just a bit so I could roll them up. Or maybe put a faux cuff on them.
And I might raise the neckline just a pinch, so I wouldn't have to wear a cami under it.
But I didn't make it, so I won't be worrying about it.
Except I like the loose T concept...so I may actually be doing a little alteration to one of my T patterns, using this T as a guide. We'll see. ;-)
It's teamed up with my black cotton/lycra sateen La Fred Daphne Pants and what is probably the single most-worn item in my wardrobe, the black twill vest from the 05/2008 issue of BWOF.
I'm rather amused that I've got the Birkies on; I meant to put on my black ballet flats but I was wearing the sandals around the house before we left and just totally forgot to switch.
At least they matched.
We have some home renovation work starting...or rather, starting back...this week. I have a queue of sewing projects that have been languishing wilst I did the push to get all the registration ready for the conference, and then we went straight into cleaning/moving things to get things ready to knock a hole in a wall; I'm hoping to spend some time with my sewing machine in the next couple of weeks.
I don't think I'm going to get the gold leather vest done in time to wear it this go-round...
