Now we’re getting somewhere!

5 Jul

The skirts are coming together and starting to look the way I had envisioned them.  I still can’t seem to make the reveal of the red skirt an equal length from the top skirt, but since they will change as they hang, I think I am going to leave well enough alone for the moment and baste them in place.

Back view.  I like it!

Maybe with a silver belt?

Or hip line detail?

Or belt plus some neckline trim?

I have tried quite a few variations, including some with darts to make the dress more fitted, though I am still partial to the looser waist because I think the latin movement makes such nice folds and lines that way.

On a body with arms.

Back view.  Should have raised my arms so you could see the shape better, but too late now.

Tomorrow – adventures with horsehair braid!
