I'm applying for a sewing position working in fashion dealing with photo shoots and pop videos hmm

Very excited

But I'm an ex childminder and I have no 'fashionable' clothes just mainly comfortable ones & some evening wear

What on earth do I wear (baring/bearing in mind it's in 3 hrs) never know which one is spelt right

Fine cords?
Jeans?
Chiffon trousers?
Dress?
Skirt & blouse?

Aarrgghh

going in the bath now (hair already washed)

How about:
Lime green mini dress/pinafore, black shirt, black thick tights & black high boots?

Ooh I'd be in a panic too. Have you got any black skinny jeans and a blazer /jacket? Something like that with a shirt or decent tshirt and some ankle or knee high boots.

Hopefully they won't be judging what you're wearing and will be more interested in your sewing skills.

Missed your second post. I'm sure that'll be fine.

Stupid to be so stressed - of course the sewing is important

I just wanna look OK

i reckon it's creative enough that looks dont matter

Good luck

Wear black, when in doubt make it as little about your clothes and much about yourself as possible:

Well I got the job grin

So what I wore must have been fine (black crepe trousers, black, cream & gold top

<phew>
