brainstorming

the hubs company hold an annual conference at the beautiful long boat key club. that weekend getaway always sneaks up on me.
for the few weeks of cool weather that we get way down here in the tropics i like to allow myself to hibernate (ie. not shave my legs, get fat, and majorly pasty)
every year the motivation to get my butt in gear (and in the sun) is the culminating event of this conference. the formal awards ceremony. that's right.... formal! well as formal as a bunch of restaurant executives get. every year i get so excited about putting on the dress and the makeup, and seeing the hubs in something fancier than a polo. yet every year i feel like i play it a little safe with my wordrobe.
since i have been so inspired to sew lately....here's what i am thinking for this year:


so i want to make a skirt like this. but not so heavy. i am thinking a silk chiffon, and possibly multiple layers. and the beautiful tropical watercolored fabric that i fell in love with is no longer available. i am debating dying my own. thoughts?

please let me know what you think! all feedback is encouraged and needed! i am still on the fence about wether or not i can pull it off.
