I know I need to add a crinoline underneath, but that will have to wait until my remodeled and relocated Joann's opens in a couple of weeks. The dress is a little on the sheer side. I'm wondering if the puffiness alone will fix my worries.
However, I think the large collar may take away from the tuxedo ruffles. I'm thinking about cutting the bodice straight across and adding summer straps in place of the puffy sleeves and collar. What do you think? Would you leave the design as is or change it up?
