Cirque Du Soleil & my black and red outfit

I promised to post a photo of my red blouse and here it is.  I am wearing it with my black TNT trousers made last year together with my red satin shoes purchased the same time as the red fabric.

Here is the ensemble with my jacket and of course we must not forget the shoes. The blouse was just lovely to wear and I am really tempted to make another soon as it was so comfortable.  I saw a lady walk into the theatre with a satin blouse in a lovely flesh pink colour, it had a tie bow and buttons down the front - looked very pretty.

If I was being really critical, the jacket would look better with long gloves or with just bare arms showing, but I am still pleased with it.

I have to report on my evening.  The show was just fantastic, if you ever get the chance to see these guys then you must go - incredible I spent most of the time with my mouth open, just totally amazed at what they were doing.

Last but not least we had half an hour to spare so what better way to kill the time than by enjoying a lovely glass of champagne before the show started.

I have had a wonderful birthday - thanks Mike xxxx


  1. Glad you had a lovely birthday evening. You look fantastic in that outfit. I liked the red sleeves showing; added a few more pops of colour.

  2. What a show-stopping outfit...looks extremely stylish and sophisticated. I also like the splash of colour in at the sleeves, bare arms would need a chunky red bracelet.
    So, what is next on the sewing agenda now that you have set the bar so high...

  3. Fantastic outfit, love the shoes. You look great!
