This just isn't working for me. (Ignore the wrinkles along my left -- it's pinned in place) I'm not sure why, but I'm just not liking the dress as is. I think its partially because I really never wear all black (except for concerts, and I usually just throw stuff together, so less time obsessing over every detail) and I rarely do shiny.... I'm also thinking the proportion of the skirt is wrong... it should be wider or a wiggle -- either way, but for comfort I'd go with wider.
However, I'm out of fabric (this was bought as the lining for another project I never quite got around to starting) so I'm not really sure what to do. I plan to play with the pattern a bit more, as it keeps slipping off my shoulders, and I'm thinking box pleats would work well.... but thats all for another incarnation. What do I do with this one?
