BIL's GF is pregnant, so I'm hoping to have a wedding to go to soon. I've got rather a flattering beaded linen kaftan top, which is long enough that I need to wear trousers, as I'd just look massive otherwvery well-endowed and still bf).
Bootcut jeans do suit me, but obviously aren't for a wedding. Does anyone know of any jersey leggings, beaded or not (I can do that), or even jeggings which play down the jeans side (no denimy stitching).
Ideally in navy, though other jewel colours wpuld work, or I could try dyeing white ones.
Without you Viper Mavens, I shall have to make some!
If they don't get married, at least I will have a nice outfit for a change. Not sure whether there will be a christening, as the families cross the Catholic/Orthodox divide. And the preponderance of forriners surely means I'll get away with things now beyond the pale in the UK?!
pookamoo, I imagined the beaded bit would be backed by interlining, so a more structured flare than just jersey. No?
Why not get some smart cigarette style trousers? What is your body shape? Are you sure about the kaftan? If you're large of nork, I can't see how it would work. Surely fitted top and full A line skirt would balance you out better?
No, I'm sure I haven't. And I am the last person to give s&b advice <looks at own clothes>
I just thought that you came here asking "Is there such a thing" and the answer seems to be "no".
In my limited experience it seems that all the shops everywhere have the same stuff in them anyway. Beaded leggings don't seem to feature anywhere, so yes, I guess you will have to make them, if that is what you really want to have.
I can however see your BIL's DP coming on here soon saying "AIBU to think it slightly odd that DP's SIL is buying a wedding outfit and we're not even engaged yet"... which will be a whole other thread! And I mean that lightheartedly.
