    Dress HELP

    Advertisements
    I could put this in Hobby Lobby, but I thought it might get a better response here. I making my christmas dress and need some help. I am basically designing it from scratch. I used a basic skirt pattern, cut a larger size, gathered it and pulled it up, so it is empire waist. I like the front but I don't know what to do with the back (front isn't finished yet, have to sew the top to the skirt). I still want to wear a bra, so...

    front


    Option 1 - Satin straps, going down in a V at the back, with or without bow at back


    Option 2 - Satin straps going straight down at the back, with or without bow at back


    Option 3 - Green straps (2 or 3) with ribbon bow on shoulder


    Option 4 - Green piece at back (can make larger) with ribbon bow on shoulder


    Also, should I go for the pink or use a white ribbon?

    I vote #3 with white or black ribbon. I think the pink makes it look more like a little girl's dress.

    It's pretty! Good job!
