Whelp, my friend finished reading the Hunger Games, so as promised here are the dress sketches.
The first choice is a standard ball gown with pickups:
It’s a little different than my original concept, but it has the major bonus of having a pattern. This would save me hoooooooooours of work.
With the time saved from drafting an entire gown for each of them I’d be able to spend more time on tiny details added to the dress. Like possibly adding a corset closure up the back.
The second choice is this:
Which is really just a very bad drawing of this gorgeous dress I found many months back.
I love this dress. Hell, screw my bridesmaids, I want to wear this dress… but I don’t have a pattern for it. That means I’ll have to draft the entire thing from the ground up. I know it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, but with my schedule over the next few months it’s got me in a panic.
I also originally wanted tartan fabric for the dresses, but after much scouring of the internet I’ve decided that @ 62$ a yard for tartan *** when I need 30+ yards *** my bridesmaids will look absolutely beautiful in a solid blue.
So, do you have any opinions about which way I should go?
