    I'm sorry to miss your party last week

    I can't go to my friend's party tomorrow, so I write:
    I'm sorry to miss your party.

    But if the party was last week, can I write:
    I'm sorry to miss your party last week.

    Should I use the perfect infinitive?
    I'm sorry to have missed your party last week.

    It's just a theoretical question.
    The simplest way would be to write:
    I'm sorry I missed your party last week.

    Re: I'm sorry to miss your party last week

    I'm sorry I to miss your party last week does not work. These do:

    I was sorry to miss your party last week.
    I'm sorry I missed your party last week.
    I'm sorry to have missed your party last week.
