I'm not sure how I want the pillow flower's skirt to look like, so I figured I4d show you and listen to what you think of it :

Option 1 : white triangle pointing down


Option 2 : black triangle pointing up (aka original design)


(It's just sloppily pinned in place now to get a rough idea) What d'you think ? I'm leaning towards option #2 right now.

I'm also wondering whether or not I should pu some batting into Provence's mantle, I feel the wool + interlining + lining alone could be a little light for February...

Option 2; I Like how the points of the triangles meet.

I vote for the 2. And after looking the original design, I revote for the 2.

Definitely option 2. It makes a much nicer vertical line for the eye.
Very pretty!

I like both (not helpful, I know :-)). I think option 1 reminds me more of the 20s dresses in the magizines, but the triangles in option 2 appeals more to the modern eye and seems to "thin" the figure. What does your research show for this kind of thing?

I haven't actually done any research for this one. It started with the fabric calling to me in the fabric store, and then I figured a 20s shape would be great to usethe print. It's not meant to be a particularly accurate historical costume, just a pretty periodesque dress for my best friend's wedding. So the only limit is wha tI like and feel able to wear ;)

Then the criteria is which one is the most fun for you ;-) Enjoy the wedding!

Option 2 - it's much more visually interesting.

Seeing now on the dummy, I have to agree. Yay for interesting fabric !

I like #2 as well, it looks more balanced.

Yep. It wa sthe first option I thought of anyway, so it's probably the right one.

I like option 2 - I think it will look more flattering.

Less boxy, right, better to camouflage my womanly hips.
