Objects of contempation

27 Oct

What will this neckline and sleeve look like? I have been pondering this for some days and finally did a bit of draping so I could take pictures and think a bit more visually.  Here are two ideas.

    I prefer the draping over to the side. The one covering the neck so much is probably not flattering on as well as strangling the wearer. Could you bring the draping over towards the center neck so it forms more of a diagonal line – as in a vee-neckline?

      Thanks for the feedback, Kathy. If I do the draping to the side, it will likely be cap sleeves in that style. I am still tossing it all around in my head and still wondering about doing a regular scoop neck, sleeveless, with floats attached under the arms, or at least one arm and possibly one sleeve. It is sometimes a case of options overload when I do these things!

    I like the option #2 as well… the draping across the neck looks accidental.

    I am just not getting the “this is it!” vibe that I want from either of these. If I did the side version, I would make both sides the same – sort of gathered cap sleeves – but I just don’t know. I am starting to lean toward a draped neckline front and back and just sleeveless. I will try to do a test version sometime this week..

    For anyone who hates a ditherer, you had probably better stop reading about now! LOL. This could take awhile…
