Dancing the Night Away

Thank you everyone for sharing your opinions about the lining for one of my skirt selections for the holiday club dance invitation.  You all made me really approach this small design question with new eyes.  I was leaning towards the black lining since it made the maroon lace flower pop and matched the maroon of the RTW top so well.  But Nan, Michele and Linda, I went with your choice, the hot pink.  Part of the reason was that it isn't very nice lace in the first place so treating it "so respectfully" with the grey or black lining just sort of showed off its inferiority.  The hot pink does make it look a bit more over the top and tongue in cheek.
So here's how the lace skirt looks with two tops I plan to wear to some other, quieter holiday gatherings:

But KC and Irene, you were right, it's the purple that won for the club dance last night.  The purple twist top looks the best on me and Mr. Lucky was complimentary so I know it was a good choice. 

 We had a delightful evening with our generous, thoughtful friends and danced our feet silly. This simple 8 gore skirt is so fun and swirl-y for dancing.  

Here's hoping your holidays are full of fun festivities and loving people as well.


  1. So glad you had a nice time. I love the hot pink lining with the lace!

  2. I am so glad you stopped by my blog, it let me find yours. You have sewn some beautiful things!

  3. Looks like you are covered for several outings there! Good job on them all. :O)

  4. Both skirts turned out wonderfully! Glad you had a wonderful time.

  5. The lace does look wonderful with that lining, and with those two tops. I'm so glad you had such a fun evening!

  6. Gorgeous! Looks like you will always have fun in this outfit.


Love your comments, opinions, advice and questions. I just ask that we all "play nice."
