Love this. I agree about the lining.Just for fun perhaps a lining in one of the motif colors? purple,or??
would be nice!
I agree with both of you. I don't care for the really short lining as shown in the picture. I do agree that a contrast lining color would have brought out all the pretty lacy work. I have seen one done in a similar manor and the lining was beige or flesh tones. It was really cool looking and might even go better with your "hippy" theme.
Yes, if it was beige, the length wouldn't matter .
Yes, I agree, the short lining is quite distracting! What a great dress though and there are so many possibilities in the way that it could be made.
Yes, perhaps long sleeves...
Oh, my dears, you are missing the point! She has beautiful legs and wants to have her cake and eat it, too. Thus she wears a long skirt for a certain look but the legs are visible through a swirl of lace.
This dress could also be made as a tunic to wear over jeans.
