Thanks for the advice! We went with black and gold brocade for a sdeless gown and beige,cream linen for the underdress. It will be much nicer than anything I have so far. My husband said I could add a colored underdress or skirt in future years in green or red, but I'm not sure sure. I'm thinking maybe a nice white underdress with sublte green-red trim for future years. For now, we will be very busy with this. We also have another event in October that will require us to work on our everyday garb (repair, replace, etc) first.
