    I don’t know if a sash would complement a short waist, ESPECIALLY with a basque waistline. You should try on your dress and put different width ribbon around you to test out what it would look like. I’m thinking that it would be better without the sash, but it’s hard to tell without actually seeing it.

    Ooo That doesn’t look bad. I was picturing the sash above the waist seam, but I like it with the sash along/covering the seam in front.

    Okay, so I change my vote. I like the v-front sash. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I actually love the lines of your dress without the sash. I voted “other”.

    I actually liked the embellishment on the original sash as well as the width of it in front, but agree with you that it’s lacking in the back. I would do your original sash in front and widen it towards the back so you end up with the wide sash in the back (which looks stunning). I’d even keep the rhinestone brooch in the back as well, but i’d skip the gloves. They are distracting and a little old fashioned (no offense). But in the end it’s your call. Whatever you feel the most beautiful in is the right choice for you!

    Not a fan of the sash, not going to lie.  I think it takes away from your pretty dress.  Maybe carry purple flowers or wear a purple fascinator in your hair?  Or a purple bracelet?

    I really love the sash with the dramatic tails, with the front cinched with a brooch. It think it looks really pretty in the front and the back, and with the other options I kinda feel like it’s just one or the other.

    I went through a similar dilema with my dress. First wanted to add a wide sash but ended up with a skinny one and added a brooch that complemented the v-shape.

    I like your inspiration picture as well.  ๐Ÿ™‚   I like the pop of color, but I think the ribbon material may be a little too thin and flimsy for your sash.  A wider material with a heavier drape might look better.  You could also try tapering the front so it’s very thin at the V point and getting wider as you go back… but that might be quite a DIY project!

    @woodwindwaker: I like the v sash but I think it should be thinner (like half the width).  ๐Ÿ˜€ And I dont think gloves would compliment this dress but its up to you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    But, honestly I like it best without a sash.
