I finished the over skirt for Lilac Dream.
At first I liked it with nothing but I rather like the lace. With some fancy foot work I can get a lot of the ties done with the same lace.
In the modern world, less is more, but in the 1870’s they seemed to live by a MORE is more philosophy. So let’s try more. I made a pile of bows and still have 3 left. Hmmm. That doesn’t seem quite right. Asymmetry bothers my modern mind.Nope. Not the asymmetry that is off.Nope.
Gads! I don’t know! I think I need to walk away from it for a bit and let it marinate in my mind for a bit.
There is also the issue of the contrasting side panels that I am having a love/hate relationship with. I have to love them…they are there because I ran out of the floral fabric. Maybe they need something…more….
