Almost finished Adithi's Birthday Gown, i chose the bling fabric for bodice, as she loves bling, got a feeling if it might end up being too tacky or ala a dance floor outfit, so played with underlining in the front bodice as can be seen below
Here is the skirt portion
Then added another tier of remaining bling fabric to skirt and pinched it to make petals!
Do you see the underlining pattern on front bodice, is this dress looking too tacky? do i need to tone it down? i thought of adding may be euro-ruffles at center or even add fabric flowers ala the Pink Petal skirt's Cowl Top, what do you think, inputs please, i am running out of time, need to finish this today and make a casual dress to worn on her b'day during day time, this dress is for the party later in the evening, need to make party prep tomorrow, so all i have is today, i am now off to make the casual outfit, and will get back to the blog to read your valuable inputs! Thanks.
This is how it looks without the pouffy petticoat underneath!
