Quick advice needed – Friday night make!

So tomorrow night I’m going on an outing with the Wellington Sewing Bloggers’ Network to the opening of the Dowse’s Home Sewn Exhibition.  I’m pretty excited about this, because I love sewing, and I love celebrating the things that people make for themselves and their loved ones.

However, I’ve had a rather jammed packed life lately.  Dinner and/or movie dates on Friday nights have put paid to my selfish sewing time (in a most enjoyable manner), and I’ve also just spent a week down south visiting family.  Which means that tonight is the night to get my dress started… and finished!

I made the toile last night, and it fits pretty well, so I’ll be go go go tonight – as soon as I can decide which fabric to make up!

Which of these two fabrics should I choose?
Which of these two fabrics should I choose?

There are two choices:

a) Teal/blue diagonal striped wool/silk blend.

b) Hot pink and black tiny houndstooth – I have no idea what it is off the top of my head, but it didn’t burn, and it didn’t melt…

Both fabrics are a little brighter than the image suggests. I’m working on my hubby’s laptop tonight, so I don’t have my normal correction software – nor a lot of time to figure out his.

Which should I make up? You have until I finish my dinner to help me make up my mind!

  1. Oh I am late to this party so I wonder which you chose. Either would be lovely on you….

  2. I totally forgot to ask anyone to take pictures of me wearing the dress, but I do intend to blog it properly! I’m adding it to the to-do list for tomorrow!

  3. This is gorgeous!
