So I didn't want to make a new thread and I didn't want to clog up the Million Replies thread, so I'll just use this one to keep my ideas in one place. I'm in my dad's wedding and I'm a bridesmaid.. we have the option of choosing the top half of our dresses.. the bottom half is a standard floor-length, A-line silhouette made of burgundy raw silk. The wedding is in November and she's asking us to choose a style with sleeves so I'm wavering between short sleeves or full on winter sleeves. Maybe 3/4 length sleeves. But here is what I've found. I'm not sure if I can ask them to make a design incorporating a different fabric.. a lot of these are jersey or chiffon-ish. I'll have to double check on that.
I would actually love to do some really dramatic 70s style sleeves but I don't want to be obnoxious and upstage the bride.. I think she's going for low key so my couture dreams are pretty limited.
