Skirt Choices

I keep changing my mind. For my Netherfield Ball dress, should I….
Put this solid gold pattern panel down the center? It is a bit geometric in feel. It isn’t symetrical. It does have omph.

OR
Put the ‘field’ of closely spaced motifs in the front with the loosely spaced motif around the back? I think this will move nicely.

Comments Very welcome.

Green dress update – Skirt assembled and set. I’m hoping to get a good portion of the hem done as well.

10 o’clock update – Thanks to stumbling upon a playing of Mansfield Park, the green skirt is faced & hemmed. Bodices cut tomorrow.

  1. First of all, that is gorgeous fabric. Second of all, I think I’d go for the second option. 🙂

  2. I like the second choice, too. 🙂 I think we’re on the same wavelength here (probably something about being named Anna). 😉

  3. Agreed. It would bother me that the center panel would be asymmetrical if you went with option 1, and I think that, as you said, option 2 will move better.

    Best,
    Quinn

  4. Thank you ladies. I think three votes for option 2 is a solid selection of option 2.
    When looking at the sari last night, I realized I need to be ubber careful with the length. Right now, when I take the top, also partial, border off, the bottom just skims the top of my foot.
    I am so excited about this dress.
