No one can ever accuse me of not being prepared. I know UK weather is…changeable. And as it seems to be nodding towards warming up I wanted a back up plan just in case it was boiling hot.
It had to be something to do with 8th doctor that I could sew up at moments notice and accessorize with what I got in the wardrobe already.
It had to be one of the sisters of the flame. Also thought it might be good for photo if I wanted to do something different (although I need to find a goblet).
I already have a shawl bought in preparation and a necklace that looks suitably timelord-ish.
I could go two routes for the dress as you don't see much detail in the gloom.
So either I use -:
1) My regency dress pattern which is a tnt pattern for me. I can whip one up in no time. It would also double up for jane austen festival later in the year and as a summer dress.
I could wear a chemise underneath and make it sleeveless for speed.
2) A modern maxi dress pattern I haven't tried before.
3) Drape a 'roman' dress using the instructions in draping period costumes. (I probably wouldn't need to do any cutting and could un pick and re use the material again later.)
Which do you think is best?
