I really fell in love with the idea of a dress with satin and a lace peek-a-boo panel. However, now the more I look at it, the more I wonder if people will think it is strange or that the asymmetry looks awkward. I’d really appreciate some input from people that haven’t been staring at it for days. 🙂 My other dress option has an asymmetrical dropped waist but the rest is symmetrical. Any thoughts?
Here is a picture of the dress, see what I’m talking about?

Are you referring to the lace under the satin skirt? I really like it! I haven’t seen it before, and the fabrics are beautiful together.

@SarahSea14: Actually, it looks great. The lace give you a beatiful silhouette

Thanks, it helps to know that it might just be me looking at it too critically. 🙂 Here is the other dress I am considering:

I think the dress is quite pretty and the flow between satin and lace is very seamless.

I think it’s really pretty! The second dress is nice as well- two different looks. I prefer the classic look of the second myself, but that’s just my taste- you look beautiful in both!

I think your gut instinct is correct in questioning the first dress. I much prefer the second one. It’s so elegant and beautiful, and the lace is gorgeous!
Although I like the design and execution of@Pinkmoon: ‘s dress, I am not fond of the asymmetrical cut of your first dress. Unlike her dress, which gives the illusion of the top panel being lifted and pulled back to give us a peek of the layer underneath, the design of your first dress looks less well-thought out, almost as if someone decided to haphazardly cut one side short and leave the other side long. For me, your first dress option doesn’t flow well, and I find the short side to be somewhat jarring. Your second option flows beautifully and is quite stunning!

I think that a lace layer like that is a fairly common feature on gowns. I’m having a custom gown made based on Sottero’s Krisha gown that also has the “peekaboo lace” effect though the overall style is a bit different:
Nobody will think it’s strange. Both of your choices are lovely.
