Last week I showed you an early 1900s lace dress by Doucet. Generally you liked the romantic lace, and the mix of textures, but while some of you loved it, some of you found it a bit fussy for your taste, and most of you liked it but weren’t wowed by it, bringing it in at 7.9 out of 10.
Just as with last week’s dress, this week’s dress is all about texture, rather than colour. This Pingat dress in black silk damask, black silk taffeta, and ivory lace might be severe, or boring, but the floral lace, dangling beads on the skirt front, and the textured spots of the silk damask provide contrast, visual interest, and even, perhaps, a bit of levity.
What do you think? Boring despite the textures, or too much even with such a simple silhouette? Or is it spot on? (sorry! Sometimes I can’t help myself!)
