Lighting is still poor, but here it is without any trim. Since the fabric is so light, most trim I've played with weighs it down and pulls the fabric. Hrm...I think I'll leave it like this.

Why not add a pretty light weight drapy overskirt, open in front - mostly covering the sides, with a small ruffled edge?

'cause I don't have any more fabric and the event is tomorrow :) I was going for something streamlined and super simple this time around, sort of a "tailored" 18th. I can always do more with this later.

I think that's pretty darn faboo for Drac's ball. What are you going to do with your hair? Feathers? Hat? Flowers?

Heh, can't tell the fabric is light -- it looks heavy & stately in the pix! I love it w/out trim (& usually I'm a "moar trim" gal) bec. there's so much texture going on. The red belt is the prefect pop of color too. Perhaps a little something red in your hair?

There's an under petticoat of solid black, but the lace trim is just sewn to plain drapey net, so it's super light. Same stuff I used to make this cape, that I backed with beige satin http://www.neverlight.com/~madame.s/Sewing/lace%20cape.jpg

Yeah, something red in the hair. Wonder if I have a red feather somewhere?

I think it looks great, and I love the belt, makes it look more polished and finished.

Yay, thanks! Yeah, the belt was a last minute thought and I love it.

With the ruffles, you don't really need trim. The outfit is a adorable! And your accessories will add to it also.

Thanks! And I think the addition of arms and a head will help, too :)

I think the arms might put it over the top.

I think there is enough going on with that fabric that if you did nothing else it wuold be fine. I think it's beautiful!

Thanks! Yeah, that's the thing...with all the lace, there's a bunch of texture there and it's easy to become too busy. I like the simplicity of the way it is now. I'd like eventually to add an over gown of black, but it's neat as is.

The belt is a great addition, too!

Oh I love it! And it looks like you have a great full pair of panniers under there, very nice! I'm not sure I introduced myself, I'm Nikki...we've met at ulanas once or twice, but I've always loved your style.

I think it looks awesome, and I adore the sash!

I love it like this! Just like everyone said, the fabric is beautiful enough. It doesn't need any trim. The red belt really makes it pop. Love that touch of colour. I would wear bright red lipstick with it.

Crazy pretty! I wouldn't want to run into this lady in a dark 18th century alleyway.

I absolutly love this - I don't think it needs anything else! The belt is the perfect finishing touch. I can't wait to see this on you! :>

you're very talented :)
do you actually wear all you create? and on which occasions?

Date: 2010-01-16 07:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] madamekat.livejournal.com
Awww, thanks!

Yeah, I do wear it all. I wear them to goth clubs, costuming conventions (Goth Convergence, Costume Con) and private costuming parties.
