American Beauty - Dress - Part VII
Here's the mock ups . . . .
First though, I had made *major* progress in the last few days. The inner corselette is done except for a few hooks and eyes and a little hand-stitching here and there! I am at the point where I can start assembly! Yeah! I will do a long post soon about the corselette and show all the insides and how I made it.
Once I get the lining, corselette and actual dress together, I need to work on the finishing details. That brings me to this post and some mock ups for you take a look at. Now that I've seen the pictures, I think I know what I'm going to do. That could change. I said "think", in case you didn't notice! Up first, the bust inset. The first picture shows it with the velvet and the second with the dupioni. The neckline will be a bit lower and the straps will actually be about 1" or so wide when they're done. The last picture is just a reference so you can see the whole effect, rather than just the neckline. BTW, the corselette is actually on the dressform under the dress, not that you could tell, but I figured I'd throw that detail in.
Second the back drape. The top one shows the drape in white with the rose overlay. The next one shows the drape as it would look if it were red. The flowers are not the ones that will be there, just ones for the mock-up, but you get the picture. I'm planning on small roses and a few more of them.
Well, there's choices. I managed to get through the post and not post my opinion, so what's yours and why? Also, is there something else I need to add or subtract?
