Sometimes I pick the week’s Rate the Dress because it represents some element of what I wish I was sewing at the moment.
Not this week! I’m not saying that I don’t adore this week’s dress (or, equally, that I do – though you probably know that I’m generally a fan of yellow, though, of course, some yellow garments are better than others…), but my heart is firmly in Edwardian petticoatery, and 18th century silks cannot sway me. But perhaps someday…
Either the Rate the Dresses I’m posting are a major disappointment after the fabulosity of that 1910s evening gown, or you are all super busy. Last week’s frock received very few comments, which was rather disappointing as it was such an interesting frock.
They may have been few, but they were very interesting ratings – every number from 1 to 10 represented! And what do you get when you have every number on the spectrum?
The Total: 5.2 out of 10
A very halfway score! So it might not have been the most universally popular dress, but it was perfect for someone.
This week: a 1780s gown in buttercup yellow
This 1780s dress combines sleek taffeta and a smooth bodice with an abundance of poofs and frills.
