Liz in Butterick 6410

18 Oct

Remember I traded dresses with my friend Liz? She wore Butterick 6410 Saturday night to the Walter’s Art Museum gala. I love Liz. I told her once I was dating someone with a 26 year old daughter and she belts out, “SHE’S MY AGE!!!”. It was hillarious. I guess you had to be there.

Sigh. She looked amazing. It really suits her more than me. I love this color combination. It’s so nice to see other people in your work. Especially if you weren’t stressed about sewing it for them.

I did her hair and she also borrowed the jewelry (which I got a PR Weekend Philly with Lindsay T.). When I first did her hair, she said it was a little ‘Dynasty’. I told her I hadn’t done someone’s hair since the 80s so that sounded about right :)

    Wow, you did a great job styling her and that dress looks amazing on her. It looked great on you, too, though! Maybe the dress itself has a little magic in it.

    Hmm, maybe you should be one of those image consultants we see on tv from time to time. You helped make your friend look gorgeous, dress, hair, everything! Well done you!

    She looks great…dress, hair and all. You did a great job. It looks like you made that dress specifically for her.

    You should become a stylist. She looks amazing. BTW I loved this dress on you too.

    Fabulous on both of you! The colors are wonderful for a fall event.

    I have stuff in my refrigerator older than Liz. Sigh.

    Each time I see this pattern I think I should make it. In fact, now that I think about it…I have the perfect fabric….a beautiful one 1940s rayon with color day lilies on it. Got it on ebay years ago…If I make long like yours, Cidell, it will look like a wedding dress!

  20. summersetbanks October 19, 2010 at 07:43 #

    She looks awesome! I think this was a win-win situation for everybody!

    Wow, this is a stunning dress! You’re right, it’s just perfect on her — color, style, silhouette, everything. Success!
