…except upon the Irish queen. I thought of that when I saw this suit. Then I asked myself “can I knock it off?”
Of course, that triggered a thought about wearing blue and green. I remembered the divine dress featured on Dreamstress’ Rate This Dress last month:
I said it in the comments, and weeks later I find myself still daydreaming about how to translate this dress into my own working wardrobe. White lace, for one. I have a tiny piece of silk chiffon begging to be dyed blue and put to good use. I have some grass-green lightweight cotton. Perhaps I’ll dye a piece of whisper weight linen along with the silk, then throw them all together in a dress resembling this one…. Hmmm…
In other news, Joy over at 21 Wale sent me a wonderful, inspirational and instructive book:
Thank you, Joy! It’s a drafting manual that looks to perfectly complement the others I have. I can’t wait to dig around in this and play with patterns!
Many thanks to the Postal Service/Customs for opening my present for me and holding it up a week longer than usual. I’m glad to know you still look out for me.
