I had a brainstorm this morning, and it's either fabulous or horrid. Tell me! I have a Dracula's Ball on Saturday night, and I was thinking of making a pannier skirt of this ruffled fabric. I stuck my stays and panniers over top of my current Victorian gown (too lazy to remove current project, so just ignore it) and draped the fabric on top. Is this fabulous goth attire or awful? Remember, I'm not going for historical accuracy, I'm going for goth fabulousness.



And in the future, I can always use it as an under petticoat that won't be seen to further soften the pannier bones.

The way you have it set up, it reminds me a lot of this dress that I *think* was the very start of the "new era". It might be useful for reference or to further bounce ideas from.

I have no idea if it's appropriate but I do vote for fabulous none the less.

I'm glad you like it! Since I'm not going for historical accuracy, but "that looks cool", I'm not worried about appropriate. Hell, at the goth club, a thong and pasties is appropriate (but not recommended in my opinion!) LOL!

I think you would blow them away with the thought and creativity that is going into this.

Yeah I like it! The subtle stripe really emphasizes the panniers. You're really brave to try something that has lines on it because of how it will need to be really true to grain. But you're obviously meticulous, so I am sure it will be great!

FAAAAAAAAAAABULOUS, baby!

And trust me, I'm a bit jaded by goth fashions trying to be historical-cool & failing. This concept? Superb idea.

Yay! I was particularly hoping to hear from you as you are such a queen at gothy-historical-ish gowns. It is easy to go the wrong way with this sort of thing, and I'd hate to be a "fashion don't". Now that you have given it the thumbs up, I feel very confidant that I've done it right!!

That fabric is perfectly unique & is what makes the idea work. A plain material could look 'eh' & 'what's going on there?' But that texture & drape are amazing & really work!

I am going to ask you where did you find such lovely fabric??

That's an absolutely fabulous Goth 18th century inspired dress... That's going to be beautiful when finished.

Trixi

Thank you!

I got it a few years ago at a local place that sells dead stock and closeout fabrics. Can you believe it was $1/yd?!

Random person, "Did you sew on all that lace???"
You, "Oh, it was nothing." (let random person believe you are insane) ~L~
