Today I cut out Vogue 8815 of a lovely pale pink Japanese lawn (100% long-staple cotton -- and so lustrous!) that I bought @ Waechter's a while back. [More on that in a later post]
After adding 4inches to the length, front and back, and raising the neckline an inch, I am mostly happy.
look at the long, straight back, the more inclined I am to embellish, somehow.
Insert a circular godet @ lower CB to mimic the half-peplum in front??
Turn the CB seam into a placket, and cover with several artistic buttons??
Piping flanking a CB narrow panel?
Tone-on-tone embroidery detail from neck to hem??
I shall start stitching tomorrow or Thursday, so get your votes/ideas to me soon.
I anxiously await all of y'all's great input!!
