UPDATE: Five months late I am happy to tell you that Anne of Denmark rated a 7.5 out of 10, and that while not all of you loved the dress as a dress, you all agreed that Anne was rocking it, and had the attitude to pull off pretty much anything. Sounds like Anne grew into her style!
I think this Worth afternoon dress transitions nicely from Anne of Denmark’s dress last week. There is something every so slightly reminiscent of the early 17th century in the deep neckline and the front bow, and the whole extremely sculpted silhouette is something it shares with the late Elizabethan.
The overall look, however, is quite late Victorian, with its abundance of construction details and overall impression of upholstery. You rather liked our last ‘upholstery’ Rate the Dress. What do you think of this one?
How do you feel about the two shades of dark teal green with touches of gold? The bows front and back? The asymmetrical fringed apron drape?
