I have been working on this dress. I wasn’t happy with the first go around. Nice blue silk taffeta. The train wasn’t long enough, the skirt wasnt full enough and it just made a crunchy/swooshy sound when I walked. It’s not a bad dress, it just isn’t my dress. Once I found ‘the fabric’ I began dress version 2.0.
New dress is burgundy velvet, with blue and gold trim. Underskirt is orange silk. I have the correct head wear to go with the dress. And the dress feels better. It moves better. It looks better. I still have to adjust the belt, but other than that, I think it is ready to go for Saturday. I will know more about the overall success of the garment after wearing it for a day.
