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!
