October seems a bit early to be thinking about party dresses, as I seem to always associate them with the holidays. Since this is a pattern catalog, maybe they were trying to get the sewers in the mood a bit early so they would have time to order their pattern and sew the frock before New Years Eve.
Not that I’m living much of a party dress life, however I do have another family wedding coming up next weekend. This is not the occasion for a pink dress with a green wrap trimmed with white fur, however. I’ll be wearing a little black dress, topped with a vintage cashmere sweater trimmed with gold braid, and I’ll be wearing vintage shoes. I’ll try to post photos after the event.
