I have been furiously pinning the Paris fabric to the shift dress on my dress form in various shapes and sizes to see where I want the cut out sections to be. But turns out this has just made me even more confused! Here are the options....
DESIGN 1: This one is based off the t-shirt I made earlier with two diamond shapes which show round the front and the back. I could alter the position of the diamonds and the size.
DESIGN 2: This one is just a progression of design 1 with the diamonds meeting at the waistline symmetrically.
DESIGN 4: Random patches of the material. Might end up changing the shape of them to rectangles of different sizes if I go with this one.
DESIGN 5: With this one I think I would make the section below the waist slightly narrower as it looks unbalanced as it i, but this is the general idea...
DESIGN 6: This is a follow on from the previous design. The top bit will hit the shoulder seam but I ran out of material so you'll have to use your imagination!
DESIGN 7: Asymmetric look again.
DESIGN 8: For this one I broke up the previous design into two different curves. I was getting tired by this point so its quite messy - sorry about that!
DESIGN 9: Final one! For this one I basically did the opposite to design 6.
Phew! That was a lot of designs! I would love any feedback or comments you have to help me decide on which on to go with. Which one is your favorite?
