UFO Mondays: Which Dress?
I need some help. I’m attending the wedding reception of two dear friends at the end of April, and I really don’t know what to wear. It’s a more casual wedding at an outdoor resort, but I know that a lot of the bride’s friends that will be in attendance like to get dolled up, so I think a cocktail dress will be the way to go.
I just so happen to have two dresses that are partially completed and could work, but I’m not sure which one of them I should finish by the late-April deadline.
My first option is Vogue 1161 in a floral-ish print.
Last seen on the blog in summer 2010
Reason for abandonment: our friend passed away shortly before the wedding for which I was making it, and we left town early to be with friends and family
Assessment: the bodice is done, and it looks like I’ve started the skirt.
My other option is Vogue 1174 in a deep wine. I adjusted the skirt to be a typical a-line so that I can add tiered ruffles
Last seen on my sewing table last fall–I never blogged about it because it was super-secret
Reason for abandonment: ran out of time before the gallery opening for which it was intended
Assessment: bodice is mostly done but still needs boning, skirt needs to be figured out and assembled
So help me out:
