Today the crinoline I ordered from eBay arrived. I was all psyched, because that meant I could dye it and have a fun accessory under my dress. But when I tried it on with my dress, I hated the way my dress poofed out with it! Ugh! My dress draps so much nicer without it, so I’m going to forego the pink crinoline. Oh well, it was a good idea while it lasted!

Aww that sucks that it didn’t work out. You can always go with some awesome bright colored shoes and other accessories in lieu of the crinoline!

You don’t have to give up on it yet, but maybe you just ordered way too large of a crinoline – since you bought it already I’d say bring it with you for alterations- the seamstress can take out any layers you want to make it less poufy, or even just sew one layer into your dress, which you can dye beforehand.

@dance: I know. I was looking forward to a little fun detail.
I’m actually wearing these shoes, and was going to dye the crinoline to match them.
