I was invited to a swank dinner party the other night in a beautiful Historic Beacon Hill home. My immediate response to the invitation was “Yes! Of course I’ll be there… And I’ll bring the Champagne!” My second thought was, “what will I wear?” Naturally I had nothing.
Being the budding seamstress fashion designer I am I figured I’d just make something new!
With the champagne chilling in the fridge I knew that if the new outfit failed, the cold bubbles of Moët would surely save the day. With my “safety net” in place, I ran off to the fabric store…. With only $25 and a mere 5 hours till h’ordeuves I did what I could….
With only minutes to spare I finished the garment! Flustered and rushed I threw the top on and ran out the door. It wasn’t until I had already climbed half way up Beacon Hill that I realized I forgot the Champagne!
The outfit would have to be a hit!
After an absolutely fabulous night of good food, tons of wine, worldly stories and dancing, the dinner party guests began to fade. Our gracious hostess and I collapsed on the chez lounge in the saloon where we discussed future designs. Don’t know if it was the wine, or the surroundings or the vivacious spirit of my hostess, but I was inspired!
In thanks to my hostess for the gorgeous evening, I aptly named this top
The next day I went and skated in it….
