Thank you for sharing the excitement about my tuxedo pants. I’ve worn them four times already — today included! I never realized what a difference black pants would make in expanding my wardrobe.
I’ve made minimal progress on my matching jacket le smoking. I mitered the sleeve hems but didn’t have black satin buttons to finish. I found them online for a great price, but balked at the $12 shipping. My Ducheese satin was too thick for the covered button kits. I was talking to Trena last night about trying to dye some grey satin buttons I had on hand. Out of the blue it occured to me I could sharpie them. Voila!
I’m going to DC tomorrow for a long bike ride with Trena. Netherlands bike trip is in six weeks! We’re going to also hit G street where I hope to find purple Bemberg to match my tuxedo pants. At this point, I may buy a bolt. I hate not having lining.
