Turns out it is tomorrow night and Babs hasn't even cut out her dress except for a few pieces. Also had the sense to email someone I know at the provincial protocol office (and how tedious a job must that be) because I heard you always have to wear pantyhose to see the Queen. I told my contact too that I was going to wear a sleeveless dress and she emailed back "a wrap would be lovely" which I guess is protocoleeze for you need to cover those arms. I feel like Michele Obama. I wish.
Rats. I am not giving up on this pattern because I made a muslin so I am going down to the store now and looking for some kind of chiffon I can roll hem into a wrap.
Time is of the essence now and I am also thinking I am not all that much of a monarchist but if I don't go I won't see what everyone else is wearing.
Got to run.
