I think it’s great!  From what I remember you were going for a 1970’s flair?  Love it with the capelet

It couldn’t hurt to check out DB if you’re not sold on this dress.  It could easily be turned into a really cute rehearsal dress if you decide it’s not “weddingish” enough.

Could you shorten the boobage area and make it more of an umpire waistline?

love the idea of it as a rehersal dress because you could move in it! I like it without the sash (maybe try a thinner sash because a thick sash adds bulk to your waist)

I do like the cap sleeves made from the unravelled flower but I wouldnt really wear a sash with this dress. I also think the bodice is a bit saggy. If the bodice is fitted the correctly the dress will look more like a true empire waist.  Since the dress is too long you could try a crinoline but it doesnt see there is much fabric in the dress (width wise) to stretch over a crinoline. You could take the dress to a davids bridal near you and try on their trumpet slip with it

I love the first one, with the sash and little cap sleeves…

Not a fan of the cape at all…..I think with a different type of lace it would look more antique. I love antique dresses but the lace is wrong for the cape IMO. No offense, just trying to be honest!Embarassed

I really like the cap sleeves.  I’ve also heard of someone who bought a sheath dress from J.Crew and then just hemmed the front of it, so that the extra length formed a short train in the back.  Maybe you could that with this one too?

I reallllllly like your use of the flower to make cap sleeves!!! It looks great, flows well and it just plain clever
