I'm on my way to Vegas tomorrow! I put this fashion plate together based on what I think I would wear on a fancy date (or something) in Las Vegas. I love ModCloth's Twinkling at Twilight dress. Mostly, I love the back cutout. I think low backs look funny on me right now given all my weird tan lines from running, but that doesn't mean I can't dream! The bodice shaping is weird on the ModCloth dress. It doesn't use darts or princess seams at all. Instead, the middle of the bodice has slight ruching for shaping. I chose the Belledone pattern for this fashion plate. I know it isn't a perfect match, but I'm playing off my favorite feature. I found this gold brocade on Mood and I would totally make this dress in this fabric if money were no object. Besides, "It's Vegas, Baby!"
I'm looking forward to visiting Heddy's fabric while I have the rental car on Saturday. I'm specifically going to look for swimwear and lingerie fabric. I figure Heddy's outfits Vegas, so she'll have whatever I need in the stretchy fabrics department. I don't think I mentioned my actual itinerary on the blog before? I'm camping at the Grand Canyon on Thursday & Friday nights, hence the need for a rental car. I'll be staying in Vegas Saturday through Tuesday-ish. I'm still trying to determine what to fill my Vegas days with cost-benefit wise. Everything seems so expensive. :-/
Happy Tuesday and enjoy your week!
