Oh my goodness, I LOVE THAT SKIRT! You are amazingly talented. 

Since you like straps, what about doing a fitted scoopneck tank in chiffon for the top and adding a softly draping cowl neck (something small so it doesn’t compete with the full skirt.) Or a ruched/pleated v-neck with straps, similar to the one you posted, but symmetrical with a hidden front seam. 

Good luck! It looks beautiful so far. Please keep us posted!!

Oh wow. I would have loved to see any of these finished. Have you thought about making it easier on yourself and just finding a vintage dress you love (like Jackie Kennedy’s or something) and re-creating it? I liked Alfred Angelo on FB, and recently they have been posting a lot of their old designs. Some of them are really gorgeous, and I wish they still  made them!

@jbarker09:  Right on. I can respect that. I feel a little bit that way about cakes, though I’m not nearly as talented with cake design as you are with dress design. But don’t drive yourself too crazy!
