Gold medal optional

When I grow up, I want to be an ice-skating champion!  I’m not so keen on Dancing on Ice and the like, but I do love a bit of the world class stuff, i.e. the European Figure Skating Championships, held in Bern this year.

Wondering why I’m talking ice-skating on a sewing blog?  Well my friends, check out the French winner Nathalie Pechalat’s dress:

How fabulous is that?  I’m reminded of the Sew Weekly’s current imitation theme, recreating something you’ve seen elsewhere.  I want the shiny red dress!  Me me me!

Now seriously: I can’t think of anywhere I could actually wear something like this, and I’m pretty sure I’ve never worn red lace.  But there are definitely possibilities here, non?  I’ll keep you posted!
