Oh my goodness! I had the idea to do that too (the Dashing Daywear outfit) but I wasn't sure where to start. I can't wait to see your progress! Good luck!
I'll try this out, too. Maybe I will look around at a few thrift stores to see what I can find.
(If I ever did make a Dashing Daywear outfit, I would probably wear it to an Aetherlight conference )
