Perhaps some of you stitching ladies who enjoy sketching and designing your own clothes might be interested in sharing your ideas for modest inauguration clothing for the ladies in the presidential party.
These women who will be in the public eye really need to set an example and wear more modest clothing, especially on inauguration day, which has several events, both indoors and outdoors. Maybe their designers need some help. (Smile)
It might also be nice to find pictures of modest elegant styles on the web that would work.
The election may not have been the way everyone wanted, but maybe we can have fun with fashions. There should be ten parties running at the same time so that we can have more choices :-)
The author of this blog would be happy to post your clothing designs for all aspects of the inauguration, not just the outdoor scene. There will be a dinner, as well, and these women could use some common sense ideas. Below is the first design submission, from the author of Homeliving :-)
The hat has a fluffy white fur trim with a knit wool piece that fits snugly over the ears.
The coat is white wool.
All trims on boots, cuffs, coat front, hat and gloves are faux fur.
Perhaps the dinner gown sketch will appear here soon.
The notes say, "For once in the history of this country it would be nice if someone had the common sense not to hold the inauguration ceremony outside on the coldest day of the year." Can they not do this indoors? With modern cameras and such, it can be broadcast live indoors.
If they do, it would be better if even the men wore warm hats covering their ears. They need to learn from other cold climate dwellers like the Russians, Danes, Swedes. Their officials dress warmly and are also quite fashionable.
Drawings for the evening gowns will be added to this post.
More coats: wool and lined for that cold day.
Look for the gowns some time in the future on this post.
