The Blue Gardenia

The dress to wow that significant someone on Valentine's Day. January 26, 2011 06:26 6 Comments

Simplicity-2229 Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Just. And you're having him over for a very intimate dinner. Very. You'll start with Crab Salad with Hearts of Palm, move on to Beef Tenderloin with Potato Hobo Sacks, and then, for dessert, Molten Chocolate Cakes. Yum bunnies. And for the final course, you. Or him. Or maybe both.

And you're making Simplicity 2229, circa 1930s, to wear. View 1. In silk velvet. Cranberry red, of course. Your favorite. Absolutely.

Yes. The pattern was expensive. It was. But it comes with not one, but two — yes, count them, two! — completely different views. A twofer. Both styles have exquisite details. The back of View 1. The sleeves of View 2. The godets. And both styles will complement your figure. Which is curvy. Of course. Because as the menu hints, you do like food. You do. So very, very much. Mmmmm.

It will be a night to remember. Yes. Indeed.  It most certainly will.

And, of course, this pattern can be found at The  Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling, and domestic shipping is free. (And, yes, we do ship abroad, but there is a fee. There is. But just what it costs us. No handling charges. Ever.)
