50ies inspired Vintage Dress Project

In the last post I mentioned a dress designed by David Crystal (the creator of Lacoste):

"This is a fall/winter dress in a brown and black wool herringbone. The dress has a small collar faced in black velveteen. String tie circles the base of the neck with a wrap knot in front. The bodice is dart fitted through the bust and midriff to the natural waistline seam. Short, set in sleeves have turn back cuffs in black velveteen and a two button decoration. Full, accordion pleated skirt falls from the natural waistline seam. Center back zipper closure. Black velveteen belt."

I scanned the fabric I got three weeks ago and am thinking - should I go for the brown, or should I choose the bw-tweed?

I think both would be fitting, but I'm kinda stuck with the brown color, since it was the original idea.

And I like the lining fabric I have, it's a rayon-silk blend.

What do you think? Would be happy to know your thoughts on that.

  1. Das ist so schöööön ° _ ° Mach das unbedingt!!!
    Also ich wäre für den braunen Tweed (rechtes Bild)... Fragt sich nur, wie viele Meter da draufgehen? Ich glaube, der Rock ist plissiert... allerdings kann man den Effekt wohl auch per Bügeleisen erzeugen :D

  2. VIEL zu viel. Ich denke, unter 6 Metern komme ich nicht weit.
