Last week’s Rate the Dress was a 1910s lingerie frock with lace and embroidery embellishments. And well, a LOT of you didn’t like it. You didn’t think the different shades of white worked together, nor did the different textures of lace and embroidery. But those of you who did like it, loved it. Almost 20% of the ratings were perfect 10s, which is pretty darn good (but there were also two 2s, which is really bad…) So, with a lot of mixed feelings, the dress got a mixed rating of 7.1 out of 10.
This ca. 1880s dress makes slight use of lace, in the form of a crisp lace jabot, which is echoed in colour and shape in the lace-like motifs of the trim (which may actually be lace – my very minimal Italian consists of knowing all the basic textile names, and google translate isn’t even that good, so all I could tell from the description was lace was mentioned a lot!) that frames the bodice and the tiers of the skirt.
What do you think? Will the crisp precision of this one better than last week’s soft (and far too random, in the overall opinion) lace dress?
