Jul. 8th, 2017 @ 10:19 pm a dinner dress for Belvidere
Current Mood: chipperchipper
 We're having a formal dinner this year after the public leaves (get out peasants!) and that requires a real dinner dress...Well [personal profile] mandie_rw  said it does and I just copy her in everything except eating habits. 

SO I've been doing a lot of poking. and of course all the ones I like are velvet and patterned and fabric I'll never afford....but I thiiiink I found something I like. 

 
 
My plan is buy mulberry poplin (it's probably going to be 120 degrees so I'm not wearing all silk. AND I'm poor). The sleeves will be some form of lace or net. The lace trim in black lace. Possibly this one? The bow will be velvet. I like the contrast in textures. I also won't make it QUITE such an over stated vagina point. I just don't like bodices with that much...poke.

Will I have time/skill for the embroidered motifs? Probably not. Will I try? sure why not. 

Also thoughts on the bottom pleats. Black something? silk, poplin, etc or self of the poplin.
