Last week most of you loved the 1840s gown remade from 1740s fabric – the colour, the frugality, and the nod to 18th century details all struck a chord with you, and the dress came in an impressive 8.9 out of 10. Personally, while I thought the fabric and colour divine, and the silhouette lovely, the white detailing was too stark and cartoon like for my taste, and my score wouldn’t have been nearly so high, but that’s alright: different opinions are what make the world interesting!
I couldn’t find another UFO garment to show you for this week’s Rate the Dress, so instead I’m showing you a UFRTD – I started this Rate the Dress, back when I was making Carolyn’s wedding dress and had ostrich feathers on the mind. Somehow it was never the right time to post it, and so it lingered as a draft. Time to have one less draft!
Feathered frocks have had mixed reviews in the past. Victorian marabou was popular in white, not so much in teal. Feather prints did OK, but not fabulously. Will this dress raise or lower the total score?
