I am the MOB Part 2

Helen Mirren is currently doing it for me as a red carpet inspiration so that my Mum looks like gorgeous and flattered and not a hint of polyester floral with lilac jacket hideous...

The regular themes are

  • skimming but not tight fabrics
  • fluid rather than stiff fabrics
  • shimmering colours and textures that are pale without being insipid
  • an emphasis on her assets: her forearms and her decolletage rather than her ankles or upper arms.

Now... if only we could find a pattern that would do the same thing. Suggestions on a postcard...
