Red/Multicolored nylon mesh with red glitter patterns (pictures were taken over a black background) $12/yard.
And here's the dress with the skirt's wrong side gore front and center. Spandex World describes these fabrics as being sheer black mesh with sequins. So far in the pictures they both look like a pretty good match, but we all know how deceptive our monitors can be. And black mesh may make it look even darker. But they say the pictures were taken over a black background. Does that mean the fabric is brighter than shown? And the sequins would make it sparkle even more. See how my mind runs? As if I could make a snap decision on anything, any time...
Meanwhile, in non-sewing related matters, neither Henry nor I could get any sleep last night. Last I looked, it was after 5 am. No reason for either of us, except maybe getting older! But I had a dance lesson today (fabulous) so I had to get up, stumble around for awhile, then get dressed and out. We had also made plans to pick up three of his grandchildren to take to a local Christmas celebration. I think this must have been the first time the town has tried this particular event, because it was poorly organized and I believe they seriously underestimated the turnout. We lost two of the kids for awhile! Admittedly, they are little bandits when it comes to going off on their own. But cute? Yes. However, adding insult to injury we just had to take them to a McDonald's Playplace after. We have found out the hard way that these kids have a two hour maximum good behavior zone. Learn by doing, and not always by doing it right!
Tomorrow is going to be spent recovering.
