What Shall I Wear?

Tomorrow night I'm going to the Grande Finale of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and I'm super excited. The tickets include coplimentary appetizers before the show, a performance and discussion of Brahms Symphony No. 1 and complimentary desserts after the show. Not bad for a Thursday night. But ...

... what am I going to wear?! It's times like this that I wish I had a causual/dressy/comfortable/classic dress to fall back on. But dresses like that are not easy to find. Maybe I'll have to make my own. I kind of like the blue one in the picture above. What do you think?

Total Cost: To make my own dress? I don't know. I've never done it.

If you're between sizes 8 and 13 I have several things you could wear, if you'd like to borrow anything. Although I don't get home until 5pm. If it will help, you're welcome to my little black dress, several skirts, and three or four cute tops that are all orchestra-friendly!

Those dresses are fun. I wonder if you'd need a petticoat. :)

Rissie - my sister Cheri actually made a dress like the one on the right. Very dressy dark blue taffeta. She was a size 5 at the time and made a skinny belt made from the same fabric to accentuate her tiny waist . Everyone thought it was super elegant.
