Will it be too busy?

MrsUPS:  I think it depends on the lace. If the lace is really busy with floral print (like some chantilly lace) it could look like too much is going on. I really like the idea of a satin sash with lace flowers like you suggested. What is the top of the bodice now without lace? Is it just plain? Love the skirt btw!!

It might end up looking a little pirate wenchy with that skirt and a lace corseted top. BUT that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’m just concerned with it looking costumey which may be a similar concern to it being busy.  Do u have a pic of the style top? It’s hard to tell.

Hmm, I think I actually like the lace idea better – I don’t think it’s very pirate whench-y, and could provide some neat visual interest with all those textures! OR, could the dressmaker add another row of the ruffles to where the bodice ends (like where the horizontal ruching stops, and add the row underneath that seam)? I’m not sure, but it kind of looks a little unfinished at the top row of ruffles, kind of like a petticoat.

Hmmmm. It doesn’t look bad, but it’s just not my taste so I feel like I have nothing helpful to say. If u like it, go for it!

MrsUPS:  the top makes me think it is a pnina tornai dress (and the fact that it was on SYTD) 

I think if you trust your dressmaker enough to change the top then I think it would be a nice touch but if you have had trouble in the past then I think you should leave well enough alone
