Melbourne Cup in Taipei

Today I went to a Melbourne Cup event in Taipei. Lots of women in hats and beautiful clothing meet to start drinking champagne at 10:30 in the morning. Appearantly there's a horse race too going on.... Good food to choose from, even though I made the wrong choice (that's what happens when you actually eat better at home...But I guess that's a good thing!)

Of course - last minute! I finished this dress last night. It's from Burdastyle 3/2012, a twist knot dress in woven fabric. I made mine in this fabric

After finishing the dress it was time to start on the hat! A fascinator using actually horsehair braid, and I also found a net fabric with polka dots which made it go very well with my dress!

A fascinator is not every day that you get to wear, which makes this event especially fun! Not like you, or at least I, wear a silk dress either every day but it's a great wardrobe piece that I can wear to going out to a restaurant.

This dress is also a part Of my SWAP (sewing with a plan) w2014/2015. More about that another time.
