Gill's Masquerade Party

The lovely Gill & Stewart invited us to Gill's birthday party – a Masquerade Party!

Hmmmm - what to wear?
Well, I purchased some el cheapo masks ….

And one of the worst blonde wigs I’d ever seen ……. modelled beautifully here on the iron ...

And decided to team up the little trapeze dress and slip that I made for the lovely Candice to wear for the Tessuti Awards with some sequinned black pants – as you do!

The trapeze dress (Black Lace from Tessuti's - McCalls 5583) was ultra short on Candice – but she has lovely legs! So, it's perfect as a top for me ...... I used New Look 6544 for the pants pattern. The black sequinny fabric -though not exactly sequinned - more like shiny black squares stuck all over it .... anyway, the base fabric is a stretch velvet - but the shiny black squares reduced the stretch rather significantly. I tapered in the side and inside leg seams to fit my legs quite snugly.
Here is the ensemble...
It was a great night - awesome venue ..... lots of dancing - and of course SOME were better dancers than others - lots of laughs with great friends- Happy Birthday Gill!
