My husband got this invite from the school he teaches at:
Mirani State High School would like to formally invite you and your parents to the Graduating Class of 2013's Year 12 Formal.
Hmmm... while I would be required to pose as his 80-something year old Mum, thought I'd go anyway.
Luckily Lincraft had a sale on silk dupioni ($20 per metre instead of 40!) so made up this dress. I started out with a New Look pattern that had a big gathered skirt. Well, in that coral pink, I looked like a fat fairy so I unpicked the skirt and put in big boxy pleats instead. Accidentally assymetrically on the back as you can see. But had no time to change that - I just kept my back to the wall most of the night!
