My son is getting married in 4 weeks OMG! I am so excited! He is marrying a gorgeous girl and they are so happy and in love, it fills your heart with joy BUT what do I wear to the wedding. I was going to buy something but finding something I like and that fits me has become a real issue.
When I was repacking my shelves I found a gorgeous bronze black fabric.

 Can I wear a skirt? Well I will try.
The Pattern I have been wanting to try is the Bluegingerdoll Betsy skirt. I think this will be a very useful pattern. The bronze fabric is hopefully for the wedding , lined with black plus a black top, not sure which top yet. I have seen this made by several people on Curvy Sewing Collective and they all look fabulous.

 The wearable muslin fabric is quite a thick cotton. I have no idea where it came from but I love it. I know I am going into winter but I'm sure it will be fine for here and what better way to brighten a dull day than wear a flowery skirt.
What I like about this pattern that is that I don't have to upgrade . As far as I can see if I make the 22 it should fit. Anyway I am quite excited to try this pattern.
Altogether I feel quite positive about this.

Happy Sewing!
